The John Molson MBA, offered by Concordia’s John Molson School of Business is ranked 94th in the world in the latest Which MBA? annual survey from The Economist.

Published today, the survey evaluates full-time programs by asking students why they decided to pursue an MBA. The figures that The Economist collates are a mixture of hard data and subjective marks given by students. The ranking is weighted by what respondents find to be most important.

Concordia’s MBA program, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, uses case-based learning to offer students a “big-picture” business education.

“There are over 16,000 business schools in the world, so having our MBA program recognized as one of the best by The Economist is a wonderful achievement,” says John Molson Dean Anne-Marie Croteau.

“Since the creation of the program 50 years ago, the goal has always been to provide students with a hands-on education that leads to the development of the practical business skills that employers want. This ranking demonstrates that we continue to be successful in doing that.”

The Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago took the top spot in the rankings. Three other Canadian institutions made the list: Western University’s Ivey Business School (no. 60), York University’s Schulich School of Business (no. 66), and  Queen’s University’s Smith School of Business (no. 88). Concordia’s MBA program was the only Quebec institution to feature in the rankings.

Earlier this year, The Economist ranked the John Molson EMBA program second in Canada and 64th in the world in its most recent Which MBA? Executive MBA Ranking.
