The Economist magazine has ranked the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA eighth in the world and No. 1 in Canada in its latest EMBA ranking. The Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA program in the Schulich School of Business at York University has consistently rated among the top 10 in the world by the Economist in each of the three EMBA rankings it has conducted.

In placing eighth overall, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA ranked just behind Oxford, Chicago, IMD and Berkeley, and ahead of Kellogg, its partner school. Three programs in the global Kellogg EMBA network (Kellogg, Kellogg-Schulich and Kellogg-WHU) all placed among the top 10 in the world.
