Top marks awarded to Schulich by The Economist

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the business research and intelligence arm of Britain’s The Economist magazine, has ranked the Schulich School of Business at York University in the top tier in the world for both open enrolment and custom executive education programs.

The EIU survey is the only major global ranking that rates executive education providers exclusively on categories deemed most important by their clients and customers. These categories include program content, faculty quality, value for money, the school’s amenities and the impact of learning back in the workplace.

“We’re pleased to have been ranked by The Economist for the second straight year as one of the top executive education providers in the world,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth. “We believe that our world-class faculty, cutting-edge and relevant programs, and our state-of-the-art Executive Learning Centre continue to be key elements in the strong customer satisfaction ratings our school received.”

In the open enrolment (public) category, Schulich ranked second in the top tier jointly with Wisconsin-Madison and two other schools, ahead of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., and the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. Schulich was one of eight schools in the world awarded an overall rating of excellent.

In the custom program category, Schulich placed third overall in the top tier jointly with Chicago and four other schools, just behind Spain’s IESE business school. Schulich was one of nine schools in the world awarded an overall rating of excellent.

Schulich was one of four schools in the world to be ranked in the top tier of both executive education categories (open enrollment and custom programs), and was the only Canadian school to make the 2006 executive education ranking.

The EIU executive educating rankings are available in the 2006 edition of the book Which MBA, a comprehensive guide to the world’s leading MBA and executive education programs.
