Looks like we’ve got some keen, world-class entrepreneurs-in-the-making right here on the island!

The University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business is officially in the Financial Times’ ranking of the top 100 Masters in Management programs worldwide, for its Master of Global Business program – for the second year in a row.

One of the only three Canadian universities that made it to the list, the program has moved up to #69 this year, up two spots from #71 in 2017.

The Master of Global Business program, offered through the Sardul S. Gill Graduate School, also holds high rankings in international mobility (12th) and international course experience (21st).

Around the world in a few semesters

A press release from UVic attributes this to the fact that students pursuing this degree have the opportunity to study in four different continents. “MGB students spend two academic semesters abroad and complete an international internship, as well as instruction in a second language, as part of their mandatory program requirements.”

“Being named to the FT’s top Masters in Management list two years in a row, and moving up in the ranking, is a great achievement and a testament to the strength of our programs,” says Saul Klein, Dean of the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business.

“Developing a global mindset helps our graduates better understand the world’s complex business challenges, and provides them with the courage and confidence to succeed wherever they build their careers.” 

 Currently, UVic has 78 students from 17 different countries pursuing an MGB degree.
