Melbourne Business School Leaps Into Bloomberg Businessweek Top 10

Melbourne Business School’s state-of-the-art facilities are located adjacent to the Melbourne CBD.

The Melbourne Business School MBA program has leapt 14 places to ninth in the latest Bloomberg Businessweek ranking of MBAs outside the United States.

Melbourne Business School Dean Zeger Degraeve said the ranking was a great result, particularly after the School’s improvement in both the Financial Times and Economist rankings earlier this year.

The 2016 Bloomberg BusinessWeek International MBA ranking measures the experiences of graduates from last year, 2008, 2009 and 2010, and of employers who hire the School’s graduates.

Professor Zeger Degreave

“Since 2012, we have transformed our School, adopting a one-year MBA program, enhancing our careers service to better support graduates, increasing the quality of our candidates, boosting our faculty and research and overhauling our internal processes,” Professor Degreaeve said.

“For example the average GMAT score for our Full-time MBA students has increased from 635 to 705; we’re placing students into careers at leading firms such as McKinsey, Uber, Microsoft, E&Y, Intel and Bain & Company; we have grown enrolments across all our programs and increased the size of our faculty by 28 per cent.

“Our students are at the heart of this approach. We want every Melbourne Business School student to have an excellent experience that helps them achieve career success – and our Bloomberg ranking is one measure that shows we are doing this.”
