Once again, the UBC Sauder School of Business has been ranked as one of the top places to study business in Canada, as UBC earned the #1 ranking as the best business program in Canada for 2019 from Maclean’s Magazine.
In the most recent Maclean’s ranking of the 20 best business schools across Canada, UBC earned high marks in each of the individual ranking categories, including program reputation (#2), research reputation (#1, tied with Toronto), fractional publications (#2), fractional citations (#1, tied with Toronto), and field-weighted citation impact (#4). Last year, UBC shared the #1 spot with Toronto.
To assemble the annual ranking, Maclean’s draws on data provided by Scopus, part of the Elsevier Research Intelligence portfolio, one of the most comprehensive compendiums of peer-reviewed literature in the world. This is combined with the results of the Maclean’s survey of thousands of university faculty and senior administrators across Canada, who were asked to list up to 10 universities which they felt were offering the best programs and conducting the best business research.
