About

Since 1955, Melbourne Business School has been advancing business knowledge, individual development and organisational capacity.

Home to Australia’s first MBA and executive education programs, Melbourne Business School pioneered the development of business education in Australia.

This spirit of innovation and pursuit of excellence continues today across our suite of degree and executive education programs and our research and teaching which develop the skills and knowledge of business leaders at all levels and delivers measurable impact for organisations.

Our students and clients also benefit from the connections, support and insight that come from our global alumni community of more than 16,000 business leaders in more than 90 countries – Australia’s oldest and strongest business school network – and our strong ties with global businesses.

We’re the University of Melbourne’s graduate school in business and economics, jointly owned by the business community (55 per cent) and the University (45 per cent), with our leadership reporting to an independent board of directors that includes top CEOs and academics.

Melbourne Business School holds AACSB and EFMD (EQUIS) accreditation, and our programs are ranked among the best in the world by the Financial Times, The Economist, Bloomberg BusinessWeek and AFR Boss magazine. The University of Melbourne is Australia’s highest ranked university, positioned No. 33 globally in The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016.
