Each year, the Financial Times evaluates full-time MBA programs accredited by either the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) or EQUIS (European Foundation for Management Development Quality Improvement System). The 2020 rankings came out earlier this week—and, for the third straight year, the Desautels Faculty of Management’s MBA program earned a spot in the global top 100.

The 2020 ranking places the Desautels MBA program at 91st in the world and #2 in Canada.

In compiling the annual list, the Financial Times considers data such as alumni salary three years after graduation (for 2016 Desautels MBA grads, the average is $104,581 US), salary increase, and international mobility. For the 2020 edition, the ranking studied 150 full-time MBA programs around the world.

The Desautels MBA program topped Canada in seven of the 22 sub-categories:

  • Alumni aims achieved
  • Alumni careers service rank
  • Percentage of female faculty
  • Percentage of female students
  • International make-up of the school’s board
  • International mobility of alumni
  • Research intensity of full-time faculty members

As for self-improvement, McGill increased from last year in 10 of those sub-categories, including measures of diversity (such as the percentages of female faculty and students, and international faculty and students) and the CSR (corporate social responsibility) measure of the proportion of core-course teaching hours dedicated to ethics, social and environmental issues.

The full 2020 Financial Times Global MBA rankings are available online.
