Schulich’s MBA beats out big boys MIT, NYU

Schulich School of Business at York University “is punching above itsweight” on the world stage by ranking so well in comparison with MBAprograms at business schools such as Harvard and MIT, an editor at TheEconomist said last week.

Schulich School of Business at York University “is punching above its weight” on the world stage by ranking so well in comparison with MBA programs at business schools such as Harvard and MIT, an editor at The Economist said last week.

For the second year in a row, Schulich ranked as the seventh-best MBA program at North American business schools in the magazine’s annual ratings, putting it ahead of New York University, Northwestern University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

It came in 12th on the world ranking, just behind Judge Business School Cambridge at the University of Cambridge.

Only two other Canadian schools made the worldwide ranking: McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management, and the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia.

“Schulich does amazingly well,” said Economist business education editor Bill Ridgers. “It’s punching above its weight. The schools around it on the list are much more recognized global brands of business schools, such as Kellogg (at Northwestern) and MIT.

The strong ranking is a boon for Schulich in what is a fiercely competitive arena. In the Toronto area alone, students can choose from programs at Schulich, the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, as well as programs run from satellite campuses of the University of Western Ontario’s Richard Ivey School of Business and Wilfrid Laurier University’s School of Business and Economics.

“The feeling is very positive here, but it did not happen overnight,” said Schulich dean Dezso Horvath.

Schulich began developing its corporate social responsibility and environmental programs in the early 1990s, before these concepts became buzzwords.

“We have a cutting-edge program which is (always) forward-looking,” Horvath said.
