The Schulich School of Business at York University has been ranked 20th in the world and #1 in Canada in a global MBA survey conducted by Expansión magazine, a Time Inc. business publication based in Mexico City.

This is the third straight year in which Schulich has made the world’s top 20 in the Expansión ranking. Once again, Harvard, Stanford and the London School of Business took the top 3 spots. Schulich, which placed ahead of UCLA, Carnegie Mellon and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, ranked 9th among business schools outside the US and 12th among business schools in North America.

Expansión’s “Best Global MBAs” ranking criteria includes Academic Quality, Return on Investment and Global Value. The statistical-based ranking methodology also awards points for international scope and orientation, average GMAT, post-MBA average salary percentage increase and faculty research output.

“We’re pleased to once again be rated among the top 20 business schools in the world by a major global ranking this academic year,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth.

“The Expansión ranking is the premier global survey conducted by a Latin American business publication and complements the other major global business school rankings conducted by business publications in the US and Europe,” he said. Schulich has a growing presence and focus on Latin America, and the school recently opened a satellite centre recently opening in Mexico City (it currently has similar centres in Beijing and Shanghai, China; Mumbai, India; Seoul, South Korea; and Moscow, Russia).

Schulich’s MBA program is also ranked #2 in the world by the Aspen Institute (a Washington, DC-based leadership think tank). The school offers business programs year-round at three campuses: York University; the Miles S. Nadal Management Centre in Toronto; and a facility at The S.P. Jain Institute of Management & Research in Mumbai, India.
