Financial Times Executive MBA Rankings - 2007

This blog hasn't touched on Executive MBA programs very frequently, but I thought it would be worth pointing out how Canadian Schools fared in the most recent FT EMBA rankings.

Kellogg / York University: Schulich - FT Rank #17

This joint program offered between Kellogg (Northwestern in the United States) and York is the highest ranked program in Canada. As the program is fairly new, it was not ranked in the previous two FT EMBA rankings.

University of Alberta / University of Calgary: Haskayne - FT Rank #28

This joint program has moved up the rankings in the past three years, going from 65 to 46 and finally up to 28.

University of Toronto: Rotman - FT Rank # 32

The UofT EMBA program has actually fallen relative to the last two years, dropping down from it's prior ranking of 26.

Queens - FT Rank # 84

Queens is in danger of slipping out of the Top 90 ranking next year as they have been trending down about 10 spots a year over the last 3 years.

University of Ottawa: Telfair- FT Rank #87

Unranked over the past two years, Ottawa debuts at number 87 in the FT rankings.

Concordia - FT Rank #89

Concordia dropped substantially from number 68 last year and barely stays in the rankings as it is tied for the last spot with Brigham Young.

It's interesting to see the performance of some of the schools, especially the high ranking of the combined Alberta Haskayne EMBA program. York can probably thank it's relationship with Kellogg for the highest ranking of a Canadian school. Kellogg is a joint partner of the top ranked EMBA program (with Hong Kong UST), a joint partner with the 12th ranked program (with WHU-Otto Beisheim) and the 13th ranked program individually. The rest of the Canadian schools essentially fared worse than in previous rankings.
