TORONTO, Oct. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Corporate Knights released today its 2014 Global 100 Sustainable MBA ranking, the definitive annual guide to how successful international universities are at integrating sustainability into the school experience.
This year's ranking focused on the 100 programs listed in the Financial Times (FT) 2013 Global MBA Ranking. This has allowed Corporate Knights to judge which of the top MBA programs in the world are prioritizing sustainability education by supporting core curriculum choices, dedicated institutes and centres, and relevant faculty research.
The results for the 2014 Global 100 Sustainable MBA ranking show three Canadian schools are leading the pack, with the Schulich School of Business at York University as the top performer.
Following Schulich is the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia, along with the Alberta School of Business at University of Alberta. These Canadian schools were highly competitive due to the high marks they received for curriculum. Harvard Business School and the Yale School of Management rounded out the top 5.
"Our mission, quite simply, is to build on the FT ranking by determining which of the top schools in the world are focused on the intersection of business and sustainability," said Corporate Knights managing editor Jeremy Runnalls. "On that note, Canadian schools appear to have found strength internationally."
While North American schools dominated the top of the list, European schools also fared well. Three programs from the United Kingdom finished in the Top 20, along with two Dutch programs. The top school from Asia, meanwhile, was the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, which ranked ninth.
The survey and analysis of the 2014 Global 100 Sustainable MBA ranking is detailed at www.corporateknights.com and summarized in the Fall 2014 issue of Corporate Knights. Tablet edition will be available October 10 for iPhone/iPad/Kindle Fire devices. Print edition will be distributed October 23 as an insert in the The Globe and Mail and The Washington Post.
