Financial Times ranks Schulich EMBA number one in Canada

Financial Times ranks Schulich EMBA number one in Canada

The Financial Times of London yesterday ranked the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA (EMBA) at York University the number one EMBA program in Canada and number 11 in the world.

This is the fifth year that Schulich has been eligible to participate in the Financial Times ranking and the fifth straight year that the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program has been ranked number one in Canada.  

“We’re pleased to have been rated the number one EMBA program in Canada for the fifth straight year by the Financial Times of London, and we're especially pleased that we strongly improved our overall global position this year and now rank among the very best EMBA programs in the world,” said Schulich Dean Dezsö J. Horváth (right).  

In placing 11th globally in the 2011 Financial Times ranking, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA program finished ahead of IMD in Switzerland, the Stern School of Business at New York University and the Berkeley/Columbia EMBA, and just behind London Business School and Wharton. Among EMBA programs based in North America or involving North American schools, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA ranked sixth overall and was the only Canadian program to make the world’s top 25.

Among Canadian-based programs, the Kellogg-Schulich EMBA placed ahead of the EMBA programs delivered by the Rotman School of Management, which ranked 28th; the Ivey School of Business, ranked 36th; the Cornell-Queen’s EMBA, ranked 44th; the Alberta-Haskayne EMBA (a joint program delivered by the University of Alberta School of Business and the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business), ranked 73rd; and the Queen's EMBA, which ranked 84th overall.
