MBA repeats #1 BusinessWeek ranking

October 13, 2006

Queen’s MBA
has been ranked #1 for the second time in a row by BusinessWeek magazine’s
influential biannual ranking of MBA programs outside the US, with five
Canadian schools dominating the top ten. The announcement was made today at
5:00 p.m. (Eastern time). The last time the ranking was released by the US
publication, in 2004, Queen’s School of Business also commanded the top

"[At Queen’s School of Business] the workload is intense, but personal
attention from professors is second to none," said BusinessWeek in an online
report of the rankings.

BusinessWeek’s methodology involves scoring the results of questionnaires
answered by more than 200 business school recruiters (45% weighting) and
9000 graduating MBA students (45% weighting), as well as an analysis of
"intellectual capital" that comes from faculty publications in 18 key
academic and practitioner journals (10% weighting).

The BusinessWeek ranking focuses on what really matters — that our students
and the people who hire them think Queen’s MBA is best in class," said David
Saunders, Dean of Queen’s School of Business. "For years we’ve been proud to
share the limelight with some of the best business schools in the world, and
2006 is no exception."

The Top 10 business schools outside of the US as ranked by BusinessWeek
magazine are:

1. Queen’s School of Business (#1 in 2004)
2. University of Western Ontario – Ivey (#6 in 2004)
3. University of Toronto – Rotman (#9 in 2004)
4. IMD (#2 in 2004)
5. London Business School (#5 in 2004)
6. INSEAD (#3 in 2004)
7. ESADE (#4 in 2004)
8. IESE (#7 in 2004)
9. York University – Schulich (not ranked in 2004)
10. HEC Montreal (#10 in 2004)

Queen’s School of Business recently announced the evolution of its full-time
MBA program by becoming the first in Canada to provide participants with an
academic experience customized to their personal needs. Along with a new
core curriculum, each student in the program will be assigned a personal
development coach, career coach, team facilitator, personal trainer and
academic advisor to help realize their individual goals.

"We are very excited to offer this unprecedented level of customization to
develop exceptional business leaders," said Shannon Goodspeed, Director,
Queen’s MBA.
