Corporate Knights business magazine has released the 2020 Better World MBA ranking, their annual ranking of business schools with the most sustainability-focused MBA programs, and UBC Sauder is ranked 26th in the world, up from 27th last year.
UBC Sauder's full-time MBA program curriculum, offered through the Robert H. Lee Graduate School, exemplifies the school’s core principle of a global reputation for excellence in innovation and social impact. It reinforces sustainability, ethics and responsible leadership, and the faculty encourages students to incorporate these pillars as key components of the business decision-making process.
To determine the ranking, Corporate Knights evaluated 150 business schools (up from 146 in 2019), including all of the 2020 Financial Times top 100 Global MBA programs, every program that made the 2019 Top 40 in the Corporate Knights Better World MBA Ranking, and select MBA programs accredited by AMBA, AACSB or EQUIS, and/or signatories of the Principles for Responsible Management Education that opted in for evaluation. From there, programs are evaluated across five key performance indicators: the number of sustainability-focused articles in peer-reviewed journals and citations, the number of core courses that incorporate sustainable development topics, research institutes and centres devoted to sustainable development issues and faculty gender and racial diversity in the business school.
