    Rotman is not the best in Canada…

  • Stef Smith

    One would assume Rotterdam School of Management was in…..Rotterdam and not Amsterdam.

  • Ram, Thanks for catching those errors. Edinburgh actually ranks 38th. What occurred here is that the two rankings received by Edinburgh were not combined as they should have been but instead were separated. I apologize for the mistake. It’s all fixed now.

  • Rotman would naturally rank higher if it participated in all of the four rankings but this year the school lacks a ranking from both Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes. So that impacts the school’s overall rating in a composite ranking.

  • TechProductGuy

    Why is Rotman ranked so low? Best in Canada should presumably rank higher given current political climate, no?

  • Pepe

    Warwick is not very diverse and WBS is a GMAT addict despite holistic talk. The class is dominated by Indian IT and Chinese students. WBS does aggressive marketing in Asia and is financial aid conservative.

  • Ram Lakshman

    Hi John & team,

    Couple of comments-
    1) University of Edinburgh appears twice at #53 and #62
    2) HKUST was #11 last year and not #20 as mentioned

  • Micmic

    Good showing for Warwick on this ranking. The school reputation is getting better as well.
