Griffith secures #1 spot in the 2020 Better World MBA ranking
Griffith Business School’s MBA program has been ranked number one in the Corporate Knights 2020 Better World MBA Ranking.
Griffith’s MBA program has been identified as the top program ahead of a field of 150 MBA’s around the world, recognised for its focus on sustainability across course content, faculty research and racial diversity among faculty staff.
Having previously ranked in the Top Five for the last two years, Pro Vice Chancellor Business Professor David Grant said the number one ranking was testament to the quality of Griffith’s MBA.
“The journey towards number one position has been a long and sustained effort by the school and we are committed to ensuring our vision, mission and values remain at the forefront of our MBA offering,” he said.
“The Griffith MBA is values driven, with a core focus on responsible leadership, sustainable business practices and an Asia-Pacific perspective and this is what has driven its success and made us renowned for producing talented graduates of impact and influence.”
MBA Director Associate Professor Stephanie Schleimer said Griffith’s MBA program attracted talented leaders from all sectors of industry, including government, services, engineering, mining and more.
“Our graduates are highly sought after, and many make substantial career changes as a result of their MBA studies.
“Our current student group represent leaders from over 70 different industry sectors across Australia, which means that our graduates become leaders of change in almost every industry sector in the nation.
“We look to develop responsible leaders with the highest levels of integrity and ethical behaviour.”
In 2019 Corporate Knights discovered a noticeable uplift in faculty research and core courses focusing on sustainability. The demand from students to train for meaningful work and for employers to help solve serious social and environment threats to businesses has increased dramatically in 2020.
“Every MBA should be a sustainable MBA, and the Better World business schools are showing us how,” Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights, said.
