Sardul S. Graduate School programs continue to climb on diversity in QS World University Rankings

September 25, 2018 – The Sardul S. Graduate School at the University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business has continued to lead globally on diversity in the 2018 QS World University Rankings.

The 2018 results follow impressive scores in last year’s ranking, building on the school’s accomplishments in diversity. This year, the QS World University Ranking diversity assessment scale scored both Gustavson’s MBA and Masters of Global Business programs at 79 – up from 50 for MBA and 75 for MGB in 2017.

The school scored particularly highly on gender balance, with female representation across Gustavson’s graduate programs – for both faculty and students – significantly greater than the global mean. Notably, the results show that the school’s MBA program faculty is 43% female, compared to a global mean of 30%.

“We are pleased to see the diversity of our faculty shine through once again in the QS World University Rankings,” says Saul Klein, dean of the Gustavson School of Business. “This year’s results reinforce our commitment to diverse representation across the school, and reflect our pride in creating an enriched and inclusive learning and teaching environment.”

QS World University Ranking’s diversity assessment scale compares academic programs on percentage of female students and faculty members, the percentage of international faculty members and the ratio of domestic to international students at graduate program business schools worldwide.
