The Telfer School of Management is proud to announce that it has been ranked 31st of the Top 40 MBAs in the Corporate Knights 2016 Better World MBA Ranking, and is one of only 9 Canadian schools to make the ranking.
The Corporate Knights Better World MBA Ranking is the only major global ranking to evaluate graduate business programs on their integration of sustainability into the education of future business leaders.
“We’re very pleased to be ranked by Corporate Knights for our efforts to infuse social responsibility into our program”, says Greg Richards, MBA Director. “The Canadian MBA Oath that was developed here by our MBA students and the fact that we continually integrate material on governance and sustainability into our courses attest to the work we’ve been doing. The objective is to raise awareness that managerial decisions should place equal emphasis on people and on the planet, as well as on organizational success.”
Compared to traditional MBA rankings, the Better World MBA ranking is designed to help students and corporate leaders identify solid programs that have the infrastructure to support sustainability skills and knowledge. The rules-based ranking also recognizes those programs which best prepare graduates to solve business problems that intersect with larger social problems, such as climate change and inequality. The Better World MBA ranking evaluates the top 100 programs on the 2016 FT Global MBA ranking, and invites all other accredited (AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS) programs to opt-in. This year, Corporate Knights evaluated 123 programs in total.
