Melbourne Business School Executive Education rises to #32


The 2015 Financial Times Rankings of global executive education providers have placed Executive Education at Melbourne Business School at #32, a leap of five places.  This represents an aggregate of Open and Customised programs scores.


While Open programs remain unchanged at #43, Customised programs have vaulted from #40 in 2014 to #26 this year.

“This reflects the outcome of a consistent strategy pursued over a number of years – deep engagement in partnerships with our clients to understand their needs, and leveraging our expertise in collaborative design and delivery, leading to real impact and value for our clients,” says Melbourne Business School Dean, Professor Zeger Degraeve.

The rankings take into account a number of factors including quality of faculty, success in meeting the goals of the client, and internationalisation.

The results confirm that here in Australia, we have a global business school ranked with the world’s best. 

“The role of Australian business schools in the development of organisational capabilities has been undervalued in the Australian market and as a result, local organisations have looked to consultants and overseas business schools for their executive education needs,” says Dean Degraeve who has had extensive experience delivering programs for other world class institutions prior to joining Melbourne Business School.   “These rankings confirm what I have known for a long time – we are world class and this is acknowledged by our clients.”
