Business School ranked first in QS Masters in Management

December 2, 2017
Top spot for the Business School’s Masters of Management program
The University of Sydney Business School’s reputation as a provider of world class education has again been reinforced by the internationally respected QS World University Rankings.

The School’s flagship Masters of Management program has been ranked at number one in Australia and at 24 in the world by the London based rankings organisation.

The QS Masters of Management Rankings 2018 result comes in the wake of similar results in rankings published by the prestigious London based Financial Times and The Economist magazine.

Both The Economist and the FT had the School’s MMgt at number one in Australia while the FT also ranked the program at number 25 in the world.

“Our rankings success in recent months highlights the quality of the education we provide which is based on experiential learning and a close relationship with our key corporate partners,” said the School’s Dean Professor Greg Whitwell.

The Business School’s MMgt program enrols around 50 students each year and covers the essential areas of business from strategy to project management and includes hands on experience with multinational corporations such as Deloitte, PwC and Procter and Gamble.

The MMgt program is closely aligned with the CEMS Master in International Management Program, which appeared at 8th in the world in the latest QS rankings. CEMS is offered by an alliance of 30 business schools globally including the University of Sydney Business School, which is the only Australian member.

“Our MMgt ranking and the CEMS result are an indication of the quality of our academics who are creating programs that are noteworthy for their innovation and their capacity to build the skills employers most value and that will put students in good stead for the jobs of the future,” Professor Whitwell said.

The news of the QS rankings came during the CEMS Graduation Ceremony and Annual Events week, hosted for the first time outside of Europe by The University of Sydney Business School.

The School’s relatively new MBA Program was ranked the nation’s number one of its kind this year by the Australian Financial Review’s BOSS magazine.
