“Schulich is proud to have once again been rated as offering Canada’s best MBA program,” said Dezsö J. Horváth, dean of the Schulich School of Business. “The Canadian Business survey marks the seventh straight ranking within the past three months in which one of Schulich’s MBA or EMBA programs has been rated number one in Canada and among the leading schools in the world. In two of those rankings, Schulich placed number one globally.”
In late July, the School’s EMBA program was ranked number one in the world by The Economist. In September, Schulich’s MBA program was ranked number one in the world in the field of responsible business by Corporate Knights magazine. In early October, Schulich’s MBA program was ranked number one in Canada and among the world’s top MBA programs by The Economist and Forbes. Also in October, Schulich’s EMBA program was rated number one in Canada and among the leading programs globally for the seventh straight year by the Financial Times of London. And int he past two weeks, the Toronto-based School’s MBA program was rated the best in Canada by both Canadian Business and MBA50.com, one of the world’s largest online MBA portals.
According to Canadian Business, “Under dean Dezsö Horváth, Schulich has become a rankings darling: it competes in all the major competitions and has come out as the top Canadian school, and one of the best schools in the world, on many recent lists. Horváth himself considers rankings ‘an invaluable tool for measuring performance’.”
