The rating follows on the heels of a Forbes magazine list that also placed Schulich number one in Canada (see YFile Aug. 21).

Expansion magazine’s  "Best Global MBAs" ranking, established in 2006, rated leading MBA programs from around the world using a broad range of criteria, including academic quality, return on investment and global value. The survey employs a predominantly statistical-based methodology to rank business schools, with points awarded in key areas of measurement such as student selectivity and average GMAT, research output, post-graduation average salary, and international scope and orientation.

Schulich was the only Canadian business school to make the Top 50 ranking. Schulich was ranked eighth among business schools outside the US and 15th among North American business schools. Harvard Business School and Stanford Graduate Business School were jointly ranked number one overall. The Kellogg School of Management, Schulich’s partner school in the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA program, was ranked 9th in the world. Click here to view complete ranking details.

"Latin America represents an increasingly important region for Schulich in terms of both MBA recruitment and the placement of our graduates," said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth (right). "Friday’s ranking results provide an independent assessment of our school’s quality from a respected business publication. The Expansion ranking will undoubtedly assist our school’s efforts in recruiting MBA students and in placing graduates in the Mexican marketplace, where a growing number of Canadian and other international firms are establishing a presence."

Schulich is currently exploring the possibility of establishing satellite centres in Mexico City and elsewhere in Latin America, adding to the school’s existing global network of satellite centres in Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Mumbai and Moscow. Schulich’s satellite centres recruit students, provide career placement services to its graduates, offer executive education training, support the school’s nearby alumni chapters and handle local media relations. The satellite centres form a key part of the school’s transnational approach to delivering management education.
