In placing 19th overall, Schulich finished just behind IMD, Cornell and Yale, and ahead of Cambridge, Kellogg and the Stern School of Business at New York University. Schulich placed seventh among business schools outside the United States and 13th among business schools in North America. Harvard finished first overall, with the London Business School taking second spot and MIT placing third.

“We are pleased to have been rated by a major global survey as one of the top 20 business schools in the world,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth. “Today’s CNN Expansión results also mark the fourth time this academic year that one of Schulich’s MBA or EMBA programs has been ranked No. 1 in Canada by a global survey, and in one of those surveys, our MBA program was ranked No. 1 in the world.”

The CNN Expansión “Best Global MBAs” ranking, established in 2006, is the premier global survey conducted by a Latin America-based business media outlet. 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 statistics-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.
