QS Global 200 (November 2012)
The QS Global 200 Business Schools Report sorts business schools into four categories in terms of their employer recognition: Elite Global; Emerging Global; Elite Regional; Emerging Regional. Ivey is included in the list of 39 Elite Global Schools. Within North America Ivey is ranked #12, and the #1 business school in Canada. Harvard and Kellogg top the list of North American schools.
The ratings provide a detailed overview of the most popular business schools around the world, based on details provided to QS by more than 3,300 employers who actively recruit MBA graduates. The report identifies a list of 200 business schools from which employers prefer to recruit MBAs. This list is compiled from an annual survey of human resources (HR) managers and line managers with recruiting responsibilities at companies around the world. Each year, employers recommend new schools to be added to the list. This is then sent to other recruiters to rate.
