McGill: Places 4th, 4th, tied for 6th as a business school in Canada. In other words, it?s on the top b-schools inthe country.

Concordia: No mention of its business school in rankings. In other words, it?s not good enough to make it into rankings and it has NO reputation.

AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools, worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. AACSB International accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education.

AACSB International accreditation assures stakeholders that business schools:

Manage resources to achieve a vibrant and relevant mission.
Advance business and management knowledge through faculty scholarship.
Provide high-caliber teaching of quality and current curricula.
Cultivate meaningful interaction between students and a qualified faculty.
Produce graduates who have achieved specified learning goals.

Schools Accredited in Business

University of Alberta (Canada - Alberta)
University of Calgary (Canada - Alberta)

University of British Columbia (Canada - British Columbia)
Simon Fraser University (Canada - British Columbia)

University of Manitoba (Canada - Manitoba)

Brock University (Canada - Ontario)
McMaster University (Canada - Ontario)
University of Ottawa (Canada - Ontario)
Queen?s University (Canada - Ontario)
University of Toronto (Canada - Ontario)
Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada - Ontario)

Concordia University (Canada - Quebec)
HEC Montrell (Canada - Quebec)
University of Laval (Canada - Quebec)

Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada - Newfoundland)
Dalhousie University (Canada - Nova Scotia)
Saint Mary?s University (Canada - Nova Scotia)

It is important to note that AACSB accreditation reviews include all the business and management programs of an institution, not just the MBA programs that are usually the focus on media rankings.

Also, accreditation is much more complete in that it examines the mission, strategy, students, faculty, staff, curriculum, and educational outcomes through a comprehensive peer review process. This is in contrast to the media rankings focus on collecting opinions about the programs.

McGill?s business school is overrated and not accredited. As a business school, McGill sucks!

why don?t you realize through your peanut brain that rankings DO show a general view of how b-schools place relative to each other and an AACSB accreditation does not! a school like Brock or Memorial are AACSB accredited, yet the best b-school in our country, Schulich (York) is not! How can i take this AACSB accreditation seriously if our best b-school doesn?t have this accreditation. How can i take this AACSB accreditation seriously if even respected publications such as Financial Times, Forbes, and Business Week will still place schools such as Schulich, McGill and Western at the top despite the fact that they aren?t AACSB accredited? And how can I take JMSB seriously when it doesn?t show up in any b-school ranking, how can you seriously and honestly say that you even have a "good" b-school? Who can take JMSB seriously when it?s part of McGill?s reject farm, Concordia? Your school is either last or second to last place in Maclean?s every year for fucksake!

"Btw, the CEOs of CIBC and Manulife are Concordia graduates, and the Chairman of the Royal Bank is also a Concordia graduate. This means, McGilligans don?t have preference in the business world over Concordians. "

And the Chairman of Microsoft is a college dropout, your point? If anything, you don?t want to compare McGill and Concordia alumni, i?ll die of laughter.

now please, PLEASE, just disappear!

(in reply to: McGill Fanboy - Just One Insecure Monkey)^ The first thing you should know about accrediation is the university has to first seek it. It?s a long complicated process that eats up valuable resources. I don?t know if McGill and Schulich are actively seeking accreditation but I can see if they choose to forgo it if they believe they?re better than the rest. That would be arrogance. From what I?ve seen, this is an American accreditation and not all Canadian schools are on board yet. It may take some time before we see the likes of Schulich and McGill on the list.

Accreditation of b-schools is generally considered optional. It?s not like a medical school or engineering school where if education standards are?t met, people die. The most important aspect of business that?s largely ignored, is business ethics. I don?t see may stadards being set there based on the likes of Enron, Worldcom.
