FT ranks our Executive MBA Australias best

The Financial Times has ranked Melbourne Business School’s prestigious Executive MBA the best program of its type in Australia and among the best in the world.


Our Executive MBA is the only Australia business school program among the the world’s top 100 in the 2017 FT Global Executive MBA survey, where it ranked 60th.

Melbourne Business School Dean Zeger Degraeve said the high ranking reflects the quality of our Executive MBA students and the energy of our faculty and staff, who have worked hard to create a program that rivals the world’s best.

“This result can only be achieved through the collective and concerted efforts of our faculty and professional staff,” Professor Degraeve said. “Their care and concern that our students’ learnings make an immediate and noticeable difference in their jobs is paying off.” 

Professor Degraeve said the result was particularly gratifying because the School has not participated in the FT Executive MBA rankings for seven years.

“I am particularly proud that the result acknowledges the positive outcomes that our 2014 graduates have achieved three years after graduating,” Professor Degraeve said. “It also highlights the success of our efforts to encourage diversity across our School and all our MBA programs.”

The latest ranking follows on from the earlier success of our Full-time MBA this year, which jumped 11 places to 76 in the FT 2017 Global MBA rankings.

“We are committed to delivering the best possible business education experience and outcomes for our students, and these rankings show we are succeeding,” Professor Degraeve said.
