QSB Holds Title as Top Canadian School in Businessweek’s B-School Ranking

Posted on November 15, 2012

KINGSTON, ON, Nov. 15, 2012 – For the sixth consecutive ranking season, Queen’s School of Business’ MBA program holds the number one spot in Canada in Bloomberg Businessweek magazine’s biennial MBA rankings. Queen’s continues to rank within the top five schools for MBA education among international business schools.

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

The ranking is based on three elements: a survey of the most recent MBA graduates (45%), 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 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.

The complete results of Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2012 business school rankings are now available online and will be published in the magazine’s November 19-25 print issue.
