The University of Sydney Business School has secured another accolade, becoming the first Australian school to secure a place on the Financial Times’ (FT) Masters in Management (MiM) rankings.
The Business School’s Master of Management Program was ranked in the top five in Asia and in the top 50 in the world. The program, together with the recently launched MBA and EMBA programs, are the School’s flagship postgraduate management courses.
The 2013 Masters in Management ranking features the top 70 programmes for students with little or no previous work experience. European business schools dominated the list again.
The FT ranking comes only days after the Australian Financial Review’s BOSS Magazine’s biennial assessment of management programs ranked the Business School’s Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) the best program of its kind in the nation.
“The AFR and the Financial Times’ rankings establish the University of Sydney Business School amongst the world’s best in the field of management and executive education, said University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr Michael Spence.
“We are proud of this local and international recognition for our programs which provide an outstanding learning experience for current and future business leaders and help them to achieve their business goals both here and abroad, Dr Spence said.
Co-Dean, Professor Tyrone Carlin said that the FT and BOSS rankings validated the University of Sydney Business School’s “well defined strategy to join the world’s leading Business Schools.
“Our strategy is focused on high quality infrastructure, a high quality curriculum underpinned by experiential learning and a high quality cohort of students admitted to our courses, Professor Carlin said. “We can take considerable pride in this ranking which provides independent validation of our strategy.
University of Sydney Business School Postgraduate Program Co-ordinator, Dr Kristine Dery said the Business School’s Master of Management program was designed to equip students, who have completed a degree in any field, with skills that will significantly improve their employment prospects by ensuring that they are industry and job ready.
“As with other Business School courses, the Master of Management is built on experiential learning in a real world environment and is delivered in association with multinational corporations including our industry partner Deloitte, Dr Dery said.
“Our program is focused in both personal and professional development, added Co-Dean Professor David Grant. “Importantly, it is also heavily oriented towards industry with students engaged with the corporate world in the classroom and through industry placements.
“Students who complete a Master of Management at the University of Sydney Business School are globally aware, have outstanding leadership skills, are creative thinkers and have a strong sense of their social responsibility, Professor Grant said.
