Sardul S. Gill Graduate School programs a leader in diversity on QS World University Rankings

November 28, 2017 - QS Global MBA and Masters in Management rankings 2018 have revealed the Sardul S. Gill Graduate School at the University of Victoria’s Gustavson School of Business shines when it comes to diversity. The Master of Global Business (MGB) program scored 75 on the assessment scale; a full 20% higher than the global average, and, even more impressively, 50% higher when compared to Canadian schools alone.

Not to be outdone, the MBA program achieved a score of 65 on the diversity assessment scale, compared to a global score of 49. The average score for Canadian MBA programs was 50.

“We take great pride in our commitment to classroom diversity and we’re pleased that our efforts are setting the bar high for graduate business programs,” says Saul Klein, dean of the Gustavson School of Business. 

To arrive at their diversity metric, QS 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.

The Master of Global Business program also performed above the country and global average for value for money, an indication of what the return on investment and average payback period is after graduation.
