Posted on January 26, 2015

Kingston, ON – Jan. 26, 2015 – The results of the Financial Times (FT) top 100 full-time global MBA programs are in and Queen’s MBA has ranked #86 in the world (#3 in Canada). This is the first year that Queen’s School of Business (QSB) has participated in the FT’s 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 percent of the overall ranking). Six Canadian schools made the FT’s 2015 ranking. Visit the Financial Times 2015 Global MBA ranking to view the full ranking.

In October 2014, Queen’s MBA was ranked in the top 10 in the world outside the U.S. on the Businessweek’s Best Business Schools ranking. QSB was also recently ranked #1 by Canadian Business magazine in its 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 No. 1 spot in the 2014 ranking.
