Bloomberg Businessweek ranking of business schools puts Queen’s MBA at #1 in Canada

For the sixth consecutive ranking cycle, the Queen’s School of Business MBA program holds the number one spot in Canada in Bloomberg Businessweek magazine’s biennial MBA ranking, announced November 15. Queen’s continues to rank in the top five for MBA education among international business schools outside the U.S.

“Every year, Queen’s School of Business continues to raise the bar in delivering a world-class MBA experience to the next generation of business leaders,” said Dean David Saunders. “We’re pleased that for more than a decade, this influential magazine has seen Queen’s as the leading institution in Canada in this significant category.”

The ranking is based on three elements: a survey of the most recent MBA graduates (45% weighting), a poll of corporate recruiters (45%), and a calculation of the school’s intellectual capital rating (10%), based on the number of articles published by faculty in a list of 20 key publications.

Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking of Queen’s corroborates a 2012 survey by the Environics Research Group that revealed Canadian executives rank Queen’s as the business school with the most innovative programs to prepare graduates for a rapidly evolving global marketplace.
