The Schulich School of Business at York University was ranked number one in Canada and 22nd in the world in a global MBA survey conducted by Expansión magazine, a Time Warner business publication based in Mexico City.
This marks the seventh straight year that Schulich has participated in the Expansión ranking, and the seventh straight year in which the school was ranked number one in Canada and among the world’s top 25 business schools.
“We’re pleased to once again have been rated by a major global survey among the top 25 business schools in the world, among the top 15 schools in North America, and among the top 10 schools outside the US,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth, who noted that The Economist also recently ranked Schulich among the top 25 MBA programs in the world (Schulich placed 16th overall in The Economist‘s 2012 global ranking, 12th among North American schools and fifth among schools outside the US).
“The Expansión ranking result will assist our ongoing efforts to increase our profile and reach in the Mexican market, specifically, as well as throughout Latin America.”

In placing 22nd overall, Schulich finished just behind Stern, Cornell and Kellogg, and ahead of Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, the University of Michigan and the Kenan-Flagler School at the University of North Carolina. Schulich placed ninth among business schools outside the US and 14th among business schools in North America. Harvard finished first overall, with Wharton taking second spot and MIT placing third.

Among the top 25 schools in the world, Schulich was ranked fourth in the salary percentage increase category.
- Schulich ranked 11th in the world in terms of the international scope of its student population (as measured by countries of origin), with students coming from 54 countries.
The Expansión “Best Global MBAs” ranking, established in 2006, is the premier global survey conducted by a Latin American business publication. The survey rates 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 international scope and orientation, average GMAT, post-MBA average salary and average salary percentage increase, and faculty research output.
Schulich opened a satellite centre in Mexico City in late 2011 to help recruit students, provide career placement services to alumni, offer executive education programs, support the local Schulich alumni chapter and manage local media relations. Schulich opened a second Latin American centre in São Paulo, Brazil, in early 2012. The school now operates six satellite centres around the world.
