Melbourne Business School Ranks Best In Australia For Executive MBA

Melbourne Business SchoolThe Financial Times has ranked Melbourne Business School’s Executive MBA the best program of its type in Australia and among the best in the world.

Melbourne Business School’s Executive MBA ranked 60th in the ranking – the only Australia business school program listed among the the world’s top 100 in the 2017 FT Global Executive MBA survey. 

Melbourne Business School Dean Zeger Degraeve said the high ranking reflects the quality of our Executive MBA students and the energy of our faculty and staff, who have worked hard to create a program that rivals the world’s best.

“This result can only be achieved through the collective and concerted efforts of our faculty and professional staff,” Professor Degraeve said.

“Their care and concern that our students’ learnings make an immediate and noticeable difference in their jobs is paying off.” 

Professor Degraeve said the result was particularly gratifying because the School has not participated in the FT Executive MBA rankings for seven years.

“I am particularly proud that the result acknowledges the positive outcomes that our 2014 graduates have achieved three years after graduating,” he said.

“It also highlights the success of our efforts to encourage diversity across our School and all our MBA programs.” 

The latest ranking follows on from the earlier success of our Full-time MBA this year, which jumped 11 places to 76 in the FT 2017 Global MBA rankings. 

“We are committed to delivering the best possible business education experience and outcomes for our students, and these rankings show we are succeeding,” Professor Degraeve said.

Kellogg/HKUST Business School retained its spot at number one from 2016, and was followed this year by EMBA-Global Asia: Columbia/HKU/LBS, Tsinghua University and  EMBA-Global: Columbia/LBS respectively.
