Vancouver - The Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia continues to rank in the top 100 MBA programs worldwide, moving up 12 spots to place 55 in the Financial Times of London 2005 MBA survey.

Sauder ranked as one of the top schools for providing students with an international experience and an education that prepares them to seek employment globally. In addition, Sauder had the highest job placement rate among Canadian schools for MBAs three months after graduation.

“The Sauder School of Business has made continuous gains in its position in the rankings since we first took part in 2001,” says Daniel Muzyka, Dean of the Sauder School of Business. “While we have seen fluctuations in our position on the FT Top 100, our increase in rank this year reflects our commitment to the renewal and growth of the business school through the recruitment of new faculty, investment in our programs and community outreach.”

Each year, the Financial Times conducts a survey and ranking of the top 100 MBA programs worldwide and the business schools that provide them. The rankings are based on reports from the business schools themselves, survey responses from alumni who graduated three years prior, and an independent survey of the business schools’ intellectual contributions, focusing on published research and PhD graduates.
