CEO Magazine rewards Griffith Online MBA top-three ranking
Griffith University climbs the ranks of the acclaimed annual CEO Magazine Global Online MBA rankings again this year, with its industry-leading online MBA. Griffith placed third in the Australian Online MBA category and joint 11th globally, while also retaining its Tier One ranking for both.
The CEO Magazine Global Online MBA rankings identifies schools which marry exceptional quality with a high return on investment for students, by analysing the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity and gender parity.
The continuing rankings rise demonstrates the Griffith program meeting student needs and the requirements of a rapidly changing labour market, Acting MBA Director Associate Professor Stephanie Schleimer highlighted.
“Now, more than ever, the world needs leaders that believe in transforming how we think about doing well in business; with socially responsible, environmentally sustainable and economically inclusive practices,” said Associate Professor Schleimer.
“Griffith’s MBA offerings are the forefront of the movement creating positive and lasting impact for the community here in Australia, a fact that is demonstrated by our improved rankings in 2019, and of which we are most proud.”
Associate Professor Schleimer noted the flexible nature of the online MBA, providing busy professionals with an avenue to upskill and improve their career prospects.
“We know that undertaking an MBA while working full-time can be a daunting and demanding prospect, which is why the online MBA is such a valuable offering for so many of our students,” Associate Professor Schleimer said.
“Not only does it allow students to study at a time and pace that best suits them; it also provides the same opportunities as the on-campus model to engage and collaborate with fellow professionals, develop new skills and foster valuable networks that will help carry the Australian business world into the future.”
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Business) Professor David Grant echoed these remarks while also congratulating the MBA team on their excellent result.
“The Griffith MBA is founded on the principles of responsible leadership, sustainable practices and a global orientation”.
“Its courses canvass a variety of areas reflecting those values, and provide the necessary skills and knowledge for students to succeed in all facets of the changing business world, including fields such as finance, economics, data analysis, international business and entrepreneurship,” Professor Grant said.
“I would like to acknowledge our wonderful MBA team and congratulate them on a hard-earned result for their tireless efforts in delivering and refining the program, which continues to grow in impact and influence both here in Australia and abroad.”
Griffith’s accelerated online MBA program is delivered over two years when undertaken part-time, with the choice of six intakes throughout the year – in January, March, May, July, September and October.
