A range of independent organisations have developed Australian MBA rankings systems for helping students decide which MBA course suits them. Some take a global perspective while other take a more local or regional perspective. Below are the major rankings for Australian MBAs.
GMAA Five Star MBA Rankings
The Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) awarded seven Australian MBAs a 5 star ranking in 2017, with Queensland business schools once again dominating the list.
The seven school awarded 5 stars were Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology (MBA & EMBA), University of Adelaide, University of Queensland, University of South Australia and University of Wollongong.
Wollongong makes its debut on the 5-star list while Deakin University and Latrobe lose their 5-star ranking.
The GMAA rankings provide the country’s best business schools with a means of quantifying the success and calibre of their postgraduate programs, which helps not only the institution in terms of allowing it to set benchmarks and aspirations for itself, but potential students seeking to maximise their learning outcomes.
One of the aims of the assessment is to assist prospective student in their choice of institution / program by looking at programs from two perspectives – attractiveness and educational quality.
