The Queen's School of Business' MBA program is ranked among the top 100 internationally by the Financial Times (University Relations)

The Financial Times has released its list of the top 100 full-time global MBA programs with Queen’s placing 86th in the world and third in Canada.

This marks the first year that Queen’s School of Business (QSB) has participated in Financial Times’ ranking of full-time MBA programs since 2009.

“We made significant, market-driven changes to our full-time MBA program over the last few years, and wanted to wait until those program enhancements were established before reentering the ranking,” said David Saunders, Dean, Queen’s School of Business. “We are very pleased to be recognized as one of the top 100 programs in the world by the widely respected Financial Times.”

The Financial Times global MBA ranking is calculated based on 20 separate criteria, such as value for money, career progress, international faculty and faculty research, but is heavily weighted to salary measures (worth 40 per cent of the overall ranking). Six Canadian schools made the 2015 ranking.

In October 2014, Queen’s MBA was ranked in the top 10 in the world outside the U.S. in Businessweek’s Best Business Schools ranking. QSB also topped the list for Canadian Business magazine’s ranking of Canada’s Best MBA Programs. The Canadian Business “Top 10” focuses on value for money, citing “a big return on investment” as the key reason Queen’s MBA secured the top spot in the 2014 ranking.
