The University of Sydney Business School has been placed on top of the global rankings for its Business School’s flagship Master of Management (MMgt) program.
The school’s program has been ranked at number one in Australia, in the top five in Asia and in the top 50 programs of its kind in the world for the 4th consecutive year.
This ranking reaffirms its international reputation for cutting edge business education by the highly respected London based Financial Times.
The University of Sydney Business School entered the FT rankings in 2013 and remains the only Australian tertiary institution to qualify for a place amid strong global competition.
The University of Sydney Dean Professor Greg Whitwell said that it is another outstanding result and a testament to the high quality of their flagship management education program.
“It is recognition of our commitment to providing students with the tools to lead in a highly complex and challenging world,” he said.
Deputy Dean (Education) Professor John Shields believes that the Business School’s showing in the FT rankings reflects the program’s outstanding educator talent, future-focussed management and leadership curriculum and “turbocharged peer learning culture”.
“Our MMgt students are the pick of the pre-experience cohort; a cohort that thrives on-shore and off-shore work integrated learning opportunities designed to accelerate their progression to leadership roles and entrepreneurship while still in their mid-20s,” Professor Shields said.
The Business School’s Associate Dean (Graduate Management) Associate Professor Philip Seltsikas also welcomed the rankings result, referring to the quality of the school’s MMgt program as an opening to outstanding career opportunities for graduates.
“It is the quality of our corporate connections and the way we embed these into our degree programs that truly sets us apart,”Associate Professor Seltsikas said.
The FT rankings are based on a number of criteria including salary levels achieved by graduates, their international career prospects, the gender balance within the student cohort, the program’s corporate partnerships and perceptions of “value for money”.
The University of Sydney Business School shared the top half of the list with schools like Switzerland’s University of St Gallen, HEC Paris, Essec Business School in Paris, Rotterdam School of Management, London Business School, Milan’s Università Bocconi, The Indian Institute of Management, Stockholm School of Economics and Shanghai Jiao Tong University – Antai.
