Victoria B.C. – The Gill Graduate School at UVic’s Gustavson School of Business is named the top MBA program in Western Canada by the Corporate Knights’ Better World MBA Index. This distinction places the UVic MBA program within the top five programs in North America for sustainable management education.

At 11th overall, the school received its highest ranking to date among the competitive global pool. 

In 2020, Gustavson launched its MBA in Sustainable Innovation, designed for leaders who embrace responsibility for the future by integrating financial, environmental and human sustainability considerations in their decisions.
