A new global rating system designed to measure which business schools are contributing to solving important societal challenges ranked York University’s Schulich School of Business one of the world’s 30 leading schools.
The Positive Impact Rating (PIR) measured the impact of business schools in several key areas, including educating future responsible business leaders, providing relevant research, participating in the ongoing public debate regarding responsible business, and serving as a role model institution.
Other leading business schools that made the top 30 list include: the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley; the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan; and London Business School.
The inaugural PIR rating was announced Jan. 23 at the 2020 World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland.
In November 2019, Schulich’s MBA program was ranked No. 2 in the world according to the results of a global responsible business survey conducted by Corporate Knights. Schulich was also ranked No. 1 in the world by Corporate Knights in regard to the number of sustainability-related research articles published by its faculty in top journals.
Since responsible business rankings first emerged in the early 2000s, Schulich has been a longstanding global leader. The school has routinely been ranked No. 1 globally or among the top three in the world in rankings conducted by Corporate Knights and The Aspen Institute, a Washington, D.C. leadership think tank.
