Schulich ranked one of world’s top schools for investment banking

A global survey by eFinancialCareers has ranked the MBA program at York University’s Schulich School of Business among the top 25 in the world for landing a career in investment banking.

In the ranking of the world’s best business schools for “breaking into investment banking,” Schulich placed 21st overall, up from 30th the previous year. New York-based Columbia Business School ranked first overall, with Stern placing second and Wharton third.

In ranking 21st overall, Schulich ranked ahead of IMD, Duke and UC Berkeley, and placed behind UCLA, Stanford and Kellogg. For the second year in a row, Schulich was the only Canadian business school to make the global top 35 ranking.

According to eFinancialCareers, the schools that do well in the ranking “not only have a high proportion of their graduates going into investment banking, but they also secure positions at the best investment banks.”

The ranking results also show that for students who wish to pursue a career in investment banking, “the overall prestige of the college is all-important when you’re choosing an MBA,” according to eFinancialCareers.

In conducting the ranking, eFinancialCareers analyzed data contained within approximately 1.7 million professional resumes in its global database. The ranking looked at the number of MBA graduates around the world who have gone on to work in a front office investment banking role following graduation, as well as the percentage of graduates working in Tier One, Tier Two and Tier Three banks globally.
