The Financial Times ranks Kellogg-Schulich executive MBA No. 1 in Canada

The Financial Times of London ranked the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA (EMBA) at York University the number one EMBA program in Canada and 27th globally.

The Oct. 16 Financial Times ranking marks the 11th straight year that the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program has been ranked number one in Canada.      

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program was ranked 27th globally and placed 11th among programs based in North America in this year’s Financial Times ranking.

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program finished ahead of IMD, Stern and Columbia, and just behind the Kellogg School of Management, UCLA, Duke and London Business School.

Among Canadian-based programs, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA placed well ahead of the other EMBA programs, including the one delivered by the Cornell-Queen’s EMBA, which ranked 50th; the Ivey EMBA, which ranked 60th; the Rotman School of Management, which ranked 67th; and the Queen’s EMBA, which ranked 76th.

“We’re proud to have once again been rated the number one EMBA program in Canada and one of the top 30 in the world,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth. “Ever since the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program was established, it has been ranked number one in Canada by every single major global survey.”  

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA ranked number one in Canada in the categories of Salary Increase, Career Progress, Aims Achieved and International Course Experience.

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA also ranked among the top 25 in the world in the following categories:

• 15th in the world in the “Career Progress” category, which measures the changes in the level of seniority and the size of the company alumni now work in versus before their EMBA degree;  

• 20th in the world in the “Research” category, which measures the number of articles published by the faculty in leading academic and business practitioner journals;

• 20th in the world in the “Aims Achieved” category (tied with Kellogg), which measures the extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals and reasons for doing an EMBA; and

• 21st in the world in the “International Course Experience” category, which measures the percentage of classroom teaching hours that are conducted outside the country in which the business school is located.   

The Kellogg global network of EMBA partner schools collectively performed very well in this year’s ranking, with the Kellogg-Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) EMBA Program placing first overall, the Kellogg-WHU Beisheim EMBA Program based in Germany ranking 23rd, the Kellogg EMBA Program finishing 26th, and the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA Program placing 27th.

The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA Program has been ranked number one in the world and number five in the world by The Economist in the two global EMBA rankings it has conducted, and was also the top-ranked program in Canada in each of those rankings.
