Western’s Ivey business school came in 87th, up from 94th last year and beating out both McGill’s Desautels school, which dropped four spots to 91st, and the University of Toronto’s Rotman school, which fell nine places to 94th. (Financial Times)
Talking point: Harvard University took the top spot in the ranking for the first time since 2015. The ranking lists the top 100 MBA programs in the world based on 20 criteria, including an alumni survey, research output and salary percentage increases for students after taking their MBA. Ivey graduates saw an 85 per cent salary increase, the highest of any Canadian school, but near the bottom globally. The Shanghai University of Finance and Economics’ business graduates, for example, had a 216 per cent salary increase.
