Schulich was the only Canadian business school to make this year’s ranking and the only Canadian school to make the previous year’s ranking.

In ranking 23rd, Schulich placed just behind Oxford and Cambridge, and ranked slightly ahead of Kellogg – Schulich’s Executive MBA partner school – as well as IMD and UCLA.
