Master of Global Business climbs in Financial Times’ 2020 ranking of the top 100 Masters in Management programs in the world


September 28, 2020, Victoria, BC – The Sardul S. Gill Graduate School at University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business climbed in the top 100 Masters in Management Programs worldwide by Financial Times (FT) for its Master of Global Business (MGB) program. Only one of three Canadian business schools listed to the Top 100, the school earned its highest rating ever on the index, claiming #66 amongst its global competitors, while Smith (Queen’s University) ranked #59 and Sauder (UBC) tied for #81.

The school ranked particularly well on gender and diversity scores amongst its peers. According to the FT, the international faculty score is based on the mix of nationalities and the percentage of faculty whose citizenship differed from their country of employment. MGB faculty ranked #22 in the world on this factor, while our gender balance in the classroom ranked #20 in the world for the number of women enrolled in the program.

“It’s wonderful to see the Master of Global Business climb in the FT rankings,” says Sheryl Karras, Director Administration, Pre-experience Masters Programs, “Our faculty and students are dedicated to celebrating our diversity and learning from each other. The global mindset and cultural intelligence that students gain in our program will serve them well as they embark on careers in international business.”

The FT Masters in Management ranking, now in its 55th year, aims to give a thorough assessment of the top pre-experience degrees in management globally. The rankings are compiled using data collected from surveys of participating schools and their graduated students.
