Sardul S. Gill Graduate School programs receive high scores on diversity in QS World University Rankings


September 26, 2019, Victoria, BC – The Sardul S. Gill Graduate School at the University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business earned high marks on diversity in the 2019 QS World University Rankings.

The 2019 results are the third year running that the school has received praise for its diversity. This year, the QS World University Ranking diversity assessment scale scored the Masters of Global Business program at 75 and the MBA at 50.

The school scored particularly highly on gender balance, with female representation in the Master of Global Business programs – for both faculty and students – significantly greater than the global mean. Notably, the results show that the school’s MGB program faculty is 38% female, compared to a global mean of 30% and its student population is 58% female compared to a global mean of 49%.

“Diversity is a core value at Gustavson, and it’s gratifying to see our efforts in creating an inclusive teaching and learning environment be recognized by the QS World University Rankings,” says Saul Klein, dean of the Gustavson School of Business.

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.
