Smith MBA makes top 75


In February, Smith’s Full-time MBA was recognized among the top 75 programs in the world by the Financial Times. The program moved up an impressive 28 spots from 2022, to 71 in the 2023 ranking of the world’s best MBA programs.

But this isn’t the only stat that gets Full-time MBA director Matt Reesor excited. It’s the program’s position as No. 1 in Canada for overall satisfaction with the program. Smith alumni three years post-graduation have ranked Smith’s MBA in this position three years running.

“Knowing that three years later our graduates continue to look back on their experience in the program with pride is the most meaningful measure of success,” Reesor says. “A great MBA experience goes beyond the classroom. That’s why we continue to work diligently to offer a highly personalized approach that allows students to build the right program to help them reach their individual career goals.”

Career coaching, personal development and networking play an important role in helping students achieve their post-MBA goals. Smith was ranked highly in these areas as well. It was first in Canada for its career services and alumni network, and 25th and 44th in the world in each category.

“We don’t want to rest on our laurels,” Reesor says. “Staying on top of what organizations need today means that the education we provide must continue to evolve.”
