2019 AFR BOSS MBA Ranking: Griffith Business School’s MBA program has retained its spot in the top 5.

Griffith Business School’s MBA program has been recognised as the fifth best in Australia in the 2019 AFR BOSS MBA Ranking, retaining its top 5 position. Based on findings from two surveys – one from schools and one from alumni – the AFR BOSS MBA ranking of top business schools in Australia is calculated according to a broad range of criteria, including student satisfaction and value for money. 

It also considers data relating to accreditations, qualifications of teaching staff and research output. In addition to ranking fifth overall in the 2019 AFR BOSS MBA Ranking, the Griffith MBA also ranked second for student satisfaction. 

Pro Vice Chancellor (Business) Professor David Grant says the school is honoured to have achieved such a high position in the extremely competitive MBA rankings in Australia.    

“Griffith Business School has now been ranked in Australia’s top 5 MBAs for three consecutive AFR BOSS MBA Ranking rounds,” Professor Grant says.

“This is arguably the most robust MBA ranking assessment in the country, so to remain in the top 5 is an excellent result.”


Griffith MBA's Unique Qualities 

The Griffith MBA can be studied online and on campus at South Bank and Gold Coast or as a combination of online and face-to-face learning. More than 1,700 students have so far graduated with a Griffith MBA.

The qualification prioritises purpose beyond profit and explores MBA subjects through three strategic principles: 

  • Responsible leadership

  • Sustainable business practices

  • Focus on the Asia Pacific region.

Built on core values that are essential to modern business practices, Griffith Business School’s MBA program develops cutting edge and creative industry-leading professionals. 

Professor Grant revealed that demand for a Griffith MBA is growing consistently. 

“We continue to experience strong growth in MBA applications each year in a very competitive market,” he says.

Graduate Kristine Luszcynski

Sydney-based Kristine Luszcynski says Griffith’s MBA catered to her individual needs. 

“I did a great deal of my own investigation into all tertiary education organisations that offered the MBA and I had very specific criteria,” she shares.

As someone with an established career involving long hours, Kim needed to enrol in an MBA that could be studied online. Having last attended university over 20 years ago, she also wanted to find a program with supportive student services.  Kim says Griffith Business School’s ranking was one of the main reasons for her decision to enrol in the Griffith MBA.

Graduate Tim Polson

Griffith Business School graduate Tim Polson recently moved to Singapore to take up a role as Business Development Manager at Klaveness Digital, which provides a logistics platform for industrial companies that source raw materials by sea.

He believes the Griffith MBA’s focus on sustainability directly contributed to him getting hired by the successful tech startup, whose goals include reducing supply chain wastage and inshore carbon emissions from ships.


“All enterprises associated with maritime logistics are under pressure from governments, other enterprises and society as a whole to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Tim says.

“The Griffith MBA’s sustainability focus has given me the ability to develop commercial solutions that are sustainability-centric and aim to make a genuinely positive impact on the planet and society.”
