Ted Rogers School MBA Ranks as Top 100 in The Economist

For the first time, the MBA program at Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University ranked in the top 100 leading full-time MBA programs according to The Economist. The Ted Rogers MBA program placed 92nd overall and among the top six Canadian programs. The Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago placed first, with the Darden School of Business and Tuck School of Business coming in second and third.

The ranking was based on 135 leading business schools around the world. A two-stage survey was conducted, requiring the input of both the schools and the students/alumni. The study measured four key elements each weighted based on importance: open new career opportunities (35%), personal development/education experience (35%), salary increase (20%), and potential to network (10%). Based on these criteria and weightings, the 135 schools were placed in order.

In a media release by Ryerson, Steven Murphy, the dean of the Ted Rogers School of Management, had this to say. “Being ranked in The Economist top-100 MBA programs affirms that our MBA is on an amazingly upward trajectory. Our MBA students own the podium in all of the key MBA competitions. Being recognized by The Economist will help to grow our international aspirations and further set us apart.”

The Ted Rogers School MBA program is one of Canada’s leading entrepreneurial-focused programs. They have a hybrid approach that combines a strong academic foundation with experiential learning practices. Their goal is to help future innovators and entrepreneurs gain strong leadership skills, hands-on experience, and confidence.

“This ranking is a testament to our growing reputation and success,” said Kim Bates, director of the Ryerson MBA program in the same media release. “We are creating socially conscious business leaders who are both being responsive to emerging trends and to the constantly changing demands of the marketplace.”

The effectiveness of the Ryerson MBA is most apparent when studying their students and graduates. For the last eight years, MBA students at Ryerson have consistently placed first in national and international case competitions including the MBA Games and the Rotman Net Impact CSR Case Competition. And beyond competitions, Ryerson MBA graduates have a successful hiring and salary increase track record. 90% of graduates are hired within six months, and they receive a 39% increase in salary, according to the Ryerson press release.

And, for the past three years, Canadian Business has ranked the Ryerson MBA as one of the top 10 MBA schools. To see the full ranking details from The Economist, visit their website.
