Australian business schools blitz academic rankings


One-in-five Australian Business Schools were listed in the 2014 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), revealing an usually high average standard.

This result recognises the eight Australian business schools listed among the top 200 (or two-percent) of universities world-wide in economics and business.

Compared to the US or UK, the number of Australian business schools listed in the top 200 on a per-capita basis, is a noteworthy achievement, and indicates the quality of research in our member schools.

In the top 200 listings by subject, Australian business schools also feature more widely, compared to our Australian counterparts in medicine, mathematics, physics and chemistry.
