Canadian B-schools take top three spots, dominate top ten
October 13, 2006
“[At Queen’s School of Business] the workload is intense, but personal attention from professors is second to none,” said BusinessWeek in an online report of the rankings.
BusinessWeek’s methodology involves scoring the results of questionnaires answered by more than 200 business school recruiters (45% weighting) and 9000 graduating MBA students (45% weighting), as well as an analysis of “intellectual capital” that comes from faculty publications in 18 key academic and practitioner journals (10% weighting).
The BusinessWeek ranking focuses on what really matters — that our students and the people who hire them think Queen’s MBA is best in class,” said David Saunders, Dean of Queen’s School of Business. “For years we’ve been proud to share the limelight with some of the best business schools in the world, and 2006 is no exception.”
The Top 10 business schools outside of the US as ranked by BusinessWeek magazine are:
1. Queen’s School of Business (#1 in 2004)
