The Financial Times of London has ranked the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA (EMBA) at York University the #1 EMBA program in Canada and 25th globally. The announcement was made Oct. 19.

This is the ninth year that Schulich has been eligible to participate in the Financial Times ranking and the ninth straight year that the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program has been ranked #1 in Canada.

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program was ranked 25th globally and placed 9th among programs based in North America in the 2015 Financial Times ranking. The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program finished ahead of the Stern School of Business at New York University and Columbia Business School, and just behind the Cambridge Judge Business School and its partner school, the Kellogg School of Management. Among Canadian-based programs, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA placed ahead of the EMBA programs delivered by the Rotman School of Management, which ranked 47th; the Cornell-Queen’s EMBA and the Ivey School of Business both ranked 53rd; the Queen’s EMBA, ranked 67th; and the Alberta-Haskayne EMBA (a joint program delivered by the University of Alberta School of Business and the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business), ranked 91st.

Other survey highlights:

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA ranked among the top 20 in the world in the following categories:

  • 14th in the world in the “Research” category, which measures the number of articles published by the faculty in leading academic and business practitioner journals;
  • 6th in the world in the “International Students” category, which measures international diversity and experience in the classroom;
  • 17th in the world in the “International Course Experience” category, which measures the percentage of classroom teaching hours that are carried out in countries outside of the country where the program is located.

Monday’s Financial Times survey marks the second major global ranking this year that has rated the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program #1 in Canada. In June, The Economist ranked the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA #5 in the world and #1 in Canada. The Financial Times ranking is also the third straight ranking within the past month in which one of Schulich’s MBA or EMBA programs has been rated #1 in Canada and, in one instance, #1 globally. Earlier this month, the school’s MBA program was ranked #1 in the world in the field of responsible business by Corporate Knights magazine and its MBA program was ranked #1 in Canada by The Economist.
