Curtin's MBA ranked 80th in Economist survey

The Master of Business Administration degree offered by Curtin University's Graduate School of Business has been ranked 80th in the world in a survey published by The Economist.

The rankings, established by the Economist Intelligence Unit, rely on responses to surveys of faculty, students and recent alumni, as well as data provided by the University.

Curtin ranked ahead of Macquarie University's Graduate Business School of Business, which came in at 84th, but behind Monash University, which was the top-ranked Australian institution at 43rd place.

Curtin's Graduate School of Business (GSB) Master of Business Administration (MBA) is amongst the best in Australia and in the top 80 in the world according to the latest ranking of full-time MBA programs published by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), publishers of The Economist.

The ranking of 80th in the world is up from 91st last year, and the GSB also ranked sixth internationally in the criterion of personal development and education experience

Only three Australian universities were ranked in the top 100; Monash University at 43, Curtin at 80 and Macquarie Graduate School of Business at 84.

The Economist Intelligence Unit's latest ranking complements the recent Australian Financial Review's BOSS magazine rankings where Curtin ranked first in Western Australia and fifth in Australia.

Director of the GSB Professor Robert Evans said that the achievement demonstrated the quality of Curtin's programs on an international scale and the great value of its MBA

"We have climbed up a significant number of places from our previous position on the EIU league table. This is a great testament to our staff and students as well as our highly active GSB Alumni chapter," Professor Evans said.

"Much of our success can also be put down to our new careers service which was developed and implemented this year.

"The Curtin Business School Postgraduate Career Development Program includes individual CV and career counselling, career seminars, a careers expo, as well as a weekend at Rottnest with a focus on opportunities."

The GSB is a multi-disciplinary, semi-autonomous, graduate school offering an internationally accredited MBA program and Masters in Leadership and Management.
