Macquarie University’s MBA ranked top in Australia by Financial Times

A recent ranking by the Financial Times of MBAs on offer at business schools around the World, has awarded Macquarie University’s MGSM (Macquarie Graduate School of Management), number 1 in Australia, for the second year running.

The MBA run by Macquarie's MGSM, reached number 56 in the ranking, up twelve places since last year, thanks to increases in their scores for research and international mobility.

The Global MBA ranking by the Financial Times rates the MBA programmes by factors including the amount of research conducted at the Business School, starting salaries of graduates, career opportunities, employment rates, as well as value for money.

The MGSM is only one of three Australia schools to make the prestigious top 100 chart – the AGSM at UNSW and Melbourne Business School also feature.  Professor Alex Frino, Dean of the MGSM, said: "Australian schools should be proud of their performance as a whole. Education continues to be an important export for Australia and results like this improve the country’s reputation overall.

"Over the past year, MGSM has experienced the effects of this boost firsthand. Since entering the rankings, we’ve had 50% plus growth in international enrolments. Perhaps more importantly, is the quality of international students that have flooded MGSM with applications."

According to Professor Alex Frino, MGSM’s outstanding result reflects the School's ongoing commitment to providing students with the very best opportunities, which sets them up to achieve at the highest levels in their post-MBA career.  You can see the full Global MBA Ranking on the FT website here.
