Fresh QS rankings says our MBA is among the worlds very best

In the first-ever QS World University Rankings of MBA programs, Melbourne Business School’s MBA has ranked No. 34 in the world and No. 3 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand – ahead of any other Australian school.


Our MBA was recognised for the strength of its faculty thought leadership and graduate employability, while also performing well above average in the categories of return on investment and entrepreneurship and alumni success.

The QS World University Rankings is renowned for ranking global universities and subjects but ranked 232 global MBA programs for the first time in its 2018 survey.

Melbourne Business School Dean Zeger Degraeve said the latest result adds to a growing list of accolades our MBA program has received in 2017.

“It really has been a bumper year for our MBA, and I am very proud of the work our faculty, staff and students have put in to show the value of our MBA to organisations and careers. When you add this success to the other great rankings results our MBA and other programs have achieved this year, I am truly proud of what we are achieving at MBS,” Professor Degraeve said.

Our MBA program’s latest success follows on from its seven-place jump in The Economist’s recent rankings to 27th spot globally. Earlier in the year it, climbed 11 places in the Financial Times MBA rankings and made it to Bloomberg Businessweek’s top-10 list of international programs and Poets and Quants’ top 20.

Along with our MBA, QS also ranked our Master of Business Analytics for the first time, ranking it the fifth best in the world and top program of its type in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Last month, the Financial Times also named our Executive MBA program as Australia’s best after it entered its global top-100 list in 60th place. In its 2017 rankings, QS ranked the program No. 2 in Asia–Pacific.
