Business School Rankings

Rotman MBA- Ranked #1 in Canada by the Financial Times

Many agree the leading global ranking is the Financial Times. Since 1999, FT has ranked all schools globally according to 21 measures. For 12 of the last 13 years, Rotman has been the leading Global MBA school in Canada in the FT rankings, taking 4th spot for research world-wide, 4th for our PhD program and in the top 10 for finance. We also participate in the BusinessWeek ranking which has been ranking MBA programs biannually since 1988.

There are many things to consider when choosing how to further your business education. Rankings are designed to help you along that path. Many publish the results in excel files and at a Rotman School Open House former dean Roger Martin recommended that you choose the factors that are most important to you and re-sort the data to reflect those concerns. You might want to give that a try. Here are some meaningful results for us plus access to the full reports.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek publishes a biannual ranking of international business schools and Rotman is proud to be 11th. overall and 3rd for intellectual capital.

The Financial Times of London produces annual MBA rankings and Rotman proudly took 9th spot for faculty research, 6th for our PhD program and were #1 in Canada for our global MBA.

The Financial Times ranks Executive Programs annually and Rotman was extremely grateful to be ranked as #1 business school in Canada for both its Open and Custom programs.
