Nice find!

Though it might be a bit different considering the data is for MBA post graduation. I think most people talk about post undergrad salaries instead of post MBA.

Again, this is a classic example of differential rankings from different sources.

You might want to check other sources. Ie.Financial Times is highly respected.

46- Ivey
46- Rotman
49- Schulich

57- McGill

Every business school chooses to participate or withdraw from certain rankings. It probably has to do with how they were ranked previously.

Ie. If Queens did terribly according to FT, they wouldn't want to advertise that publicly. Similarly, if McGill happened to rank particularly well on Canadian Business, it's on their front page.

Gotta check them all.

Queen's really doesn't seem to be in any of the rankings... might be leaning towards Ivey now... Especially when you compare Canadian schools with other schools around the world and you'll find it hard to compete if you can't even make it to the top in Canada.

If you were so worried about worldwide rankings, you should have applied to the Ivy Leagues. Anyway, you're stuck here in Canada now; I don't see why it matters if you choose from, say a rank 40 school, from a rank 46 school, given that so many other schools are above them. Just my 0.02

You do know that a school has to allow for an organisation to put them in a ranking, FT has to audit Queen's.Queen's has choosen not to participate in the rankings, hence its not on the rankings. The same with forbes, however with forbes they atleast posted which school they approached and choose not to participate so you can clearly see that Queen's did not take part in in the forbes rankings.

Furthermore its important you guys look at the methodology used and see what parameters were used to make these decisions. Most people look at the number ranking and thats the end of discussion for them. However a lot of ranking especially for a master or PhD level is strongly based on research which doesn't matter to you guys at all.
