Griffith receives ranking boost for MBA program
Griffith University’s Business school has been identified as one of seven Business schools in Australia to receive the Graduate Management Association of Australia’s (GMAA) 5-Star ranking in 2015.
Griffith’s MBA program was also placed fourth in Australia in the 2015 Financial Review BOSS Magazine MBA survey.
These results reinforce the Griffith MBA program as being one of the best in the country. MBA Director Associate Professor Chris Fleming said that the GMAA rating was based on a detailed independent quality assessment of the top business schools in Australia.
“It provides insight to prospective MBA students about the quality of the program and maintains our position of being nationally recognised as one of the best MBAs in the country – reaffirming our recent BOSS Magazine result,” Associate Professor Fleming said.
Similarly to the BOSS rankings, the GMAA process is recognised as having an independent and rigorous national evaluation process.
As part of its aim to promote the standing of, and enhance the value of postgraduate management qualifications, MBA and DBA programs, GMAA conducts assessments of the top business schools in Australia.
“Like the BOSS ranking the GMAA rating is in part based on surveys of alumni, demonstrating the success we have had with engaging our students and delivering a high quality program,” Associate Professor Fleming said.
The BOSS ranking saw Griffith’s MBA program launch into the top five for the first time, making it the big mover within the top 10.
“Our program is set apart from others because of our three core values which have remained constant as the program has been restructured and updated to meet the needs of modern, digital-savvy students,” Associate Professor Fleming said.
Griffith’s MBA program is founded on the core values of sustainable business practice, responsible leadership, and a global orientation with an Asia Pacific focus.
Griffith offers an accelerated online Master of Business Administration which has six intakes throughout the year along with the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration, which is a direct professional entry pathway to the MBA program.
