The University of British Columbia has once again ranked among the top 50 universities in the world according to a recent survey of more than 1,200 post-secondary institutions by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the also known as the Shanghai Ranking.
The ranking placed UBC 34th among global universities and second overall in Canada. UBC also ranked 34th in the world in the 2015 Times Higher Education World University Ranking, which—along with ARWU—is widely regarded as one of the most influential and widely-observed university measures. ARWU uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of staff and alumni winning Nobel Prizes and Field Medals, the number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, and per capita performance of the university.
UBC’s individual programs also continue to score high on a global scale; ARWU ranked UBC’s economics and business programs 38th in the world, while in 2015, Maclean’s magazine recognized the UBC Sauder School of Business as the number one place to study business in Canada. The UBC MBA offered by the school’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School continually ranks among the top 100 programs and UBC Sauder Executive Education ranks in the top 50, according to the Financial Times.
UBC Sauder School of Business offers a range of programs featuring global business perspectives including a Bachelor of Commerce, full-time and part-time MBA, Executive Education courses and an International MBA based in Shanghai, China.
