Brock University press release – Brock University’s Goodman School of Business has been ranked among the top MBA programs in the world.

In its first year participating in the QS Global MBA Rankings, the School ranked 12th out of 20 Canadian business schools, including a distinction of being ranked in Canada for the Class and Faculty Diversity indicator group, which measures student and faculty gender balance, the percentage of international faculty members within the business school and the number of nationalities represented by students in the MBA program.

“This is an outstanding result, especially for our first time at being ranked,” said Andrew Gaudes, Dean for the Goodman School of Business. “Diversity among faculty, staff and students is part of the School’s priorities to build Goodman together through brand, relationships and the workplace. We are proud to offer a diverse and inclusive environment to learn and work, and that our efforts have been recognized.”

The QS Global MBA Rankings rank the world’s top full-time MBA programs. In addition to class and faculty diversity, core metrics used by global higher and business education analyst QS Quacquarelli Symonds in their 2021 rankings include employability, entrepreneurship and alumni outcomes, return on investment, and thought leadership.

In total, 258 business schools from more than 40 countries participated in the annual world rankings.

“Indeed, we have room to grow across the ranking indicators and learned a lot in entering our School for ranking,” Gaudes said. “With this being the first time in the rankings, we had expectations of discovering our strengths and weaknesses. We look forward to considering how we can use QS’s analysis to better our programs and experience for current and future Goodman students.”
