UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ’s full-time MBA program was in a class of its own, with The Economist recognising it as a clear league leader outside the United States and Europe for the sixth consecutive year.

“Our strong performance in this highly respected ranking is undoubtedly the result of the hard work and dedication of staff, students and alumni, and we look forward to further growing and shaping the program into the future,” he said.

Only three Australian universities were placed among the world’s top-50 MBA programs in the ranking, which considers student outcomes based on student feedback and post-MBA achievements including salaries for the three years after completing the program.

“The fact that we did so well is particularly impressive given the slide in the Australian dollar and the resources sector downturn.”

UQ Business School MBA Program Director Associate Professor Tim Kastelle said the MBA program was designed to help people achieve their ambitions.

“This ranking is an excellent reflection of the fact that it is successfully doing so.”

UQ’s MBA program has also earned a five-star Graduate Management Association of Australia rating for the 13thyear running.

Professor Zeger Degraeve, Dean of Melbourne Business School, said the school is the only Australian institution to be included on the prestigious list.

“We’re delighted to be ranked by Bloomberg among the top ten international full-time MBA programs, with this result following improvements in the School’s performance in both The Financial Times and The Economist rankings earlier this year,” Professor Degraeve said.

The 2016 Bloomberg Business Week International MBA ranking measures the experiences of students from the school’s most recent graduating class, of alumni who graduated in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and of employers who hire the school’s graduates.

“Since 2012, we have transformed our school, adopting a one-year MBA program, enhancing our careers service to better support graduates, increasing the quality of our candidates, boosting our faculty and research and overhauling our internal processes,” Professor Degraeve said.

“For example the average GMAT score for our full-time MBA students has increased from 635 to 705; we’re placing students into careers at leading firms such as McKinsey, Uber, Microsoft, E&Y, Intel and Bain & Company; we have grown enrolments across all our programs and increased the size of our faculty by 28 per cent.

“Our students are at the heart of this approach. We want every Melbourne Business School student to have an excellent experience that helps them achieve career success—and our Bloomberg ranking is one measure that shows we are doing this.”

Griffith MBA backs endangered orangutans through carbon offset

Indonesian orangutans, whose future existence was endangered by forest fires in 2015, are among the beneficiaries of a Griffith MBA decision to offset the effect of its greenhouse gas emissions.

The Griffith MBA was the first Australian MBA program to offset its carbon footprint, and has now completed two comprehensive assessments of its emissions over a 12-month period.

The latest report, produced by energy and carbon management consultancy Pangolin Associates, shows a total of 366 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2-e) attributed to the operations of the MBA program for the 2013-14 year, a 67-tonne reduction on the previous assessment.

The 366 total has been offset through the purchase of certified carbon credits from two innovative, Asian-based projects, following consultation with Griffith MBA students and alumni.

Gansu Zhangye Heihe Longhui Small Scale Hydropower Project in regional China and the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve on Borneo Island are the beneficiaries of the Griffith Business School initiative.

Core values

“We pride ourselves on the program’s core values, which includes a commitment to sustainable business practice,” Associate Professor Chris Fleming, Griffith MBA Director, said. “This offset is also consistent with the MBA’s Asia-Pacific focus.

“Sustainable business practice is not just about environmental sustainability. It is also about being socially sustainable and both of these projects speak to this principle.

“The continued viability of the Indonesian project, for example, is important as it means an economic boost for the local community whether it is money earned on the reserve that improves livelihoods, employment created or new levels of food security that improve health,” Associate Professor Fleming said.

“In addition, the training and educational benefits for the community are significant, not least through the confidence it generates.”

The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve project preserves carbon-dense tropical peat swamp by helping to prevent deforestation at a 47,000-hectare site earmarked for development into a palm oil plantation.

The site is also home to Indonesia’s largest private orangutan sanctuary. Raging fires in dense Borneo forest last October threatened one third of the world’s remaining wild orangutans, according to conservationists.

Leadership

In the case of the China-based hydropower project, the water resources of the Heihe River are used to generate and supply the electricity, which would otherwise be produced by coal-fired plants. “Projects such as this one need to be supported to help level the playing field in the ongoing duel with coal production.”

Associate Professor Fleming says the offset initiative should engage current or aspiring MBA student aiming to progress their careers into business management leadership roles.

“Any MBA student looking for innovation, responsibility and progress will see the Griffith MBA is an MBA for the 21st century, not an MBA stuck in the eighties.

“There is an onus on the global business sector now to take and demonstrate responsibility. You won’t get away with activities that are less than responsible today.”

Griffith MBA

Like all MBAs, the Griffith MBA explores all the business disciplines you would expect—accounting and reporting, economics, finance, people management, marketing, strategy and innovation. However, what makes the Griffith MBA different is that it’s built on core values that are crucial to modern business: sustainable business practices; responsible leadership; and global orientation—particularly, the potential impacts of the Asian century.

Generous gift helps establish a chair of finance at UQ Business School

The UQ Business School will name its Chair in Finance in honour of Malcolm Broomhead, in recognition of a $3-million gift from the alumnus and leading Australian businessman.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj thanked Mr Broomhead for his very generous support and said an international search was under way to fill the newly established Malcolm Broomhead Chair in Finance.

“The generous three-million-dollar gift from Malcolm has now made it possible to endow this chair of strategic importance to UQ,” Professor Høj said.

“We are fortunate at UQ to have a strong alumni network whose generosity and support of the next generation is allowing us to extend our programs, attract quality staff and offer transformative student experiences.

“Mr Broomhead’s philanthropy is of a very high order and a fine example to others.

“It will enhance the UQ Business School’s capacity to educate and develop the business leaders of the future.”

Mr Broomhead is Chair of Ascinao Ltd, Chair elect of Orica, and a non-executive director of BHP Billiton Ltd and BHP Billiton Plc.

He was project engineer and construction manager with MIM Holdings in Brisbane when he undertook his MBA at the UQ Business School in the early 1980s.

“The MBA was a career-changer,” Mr Broomhead said. “I was working my way up the professional ladder when I started. The MBA program enabled me to really accelerate my career.”

Mr Broomhead said he found finance the most useful component of his studies, and went on to become a chief financial officer on his way to becoming a chief executive officer.

He said he chose to support the UQ Business School because he believed it was important for those who had been successful to give back and support the education of the next generation.

“UQ Business School is the leading MBA provider outside of North America and Europe,” he said.

“I think having a top business school is really important to the Australian economy—to our standards of living—and also a really important link into Asia.

“I think philanthropically supporting our universities is becoming more important, given our demographics and the competitive nature of education globally.

“We can’t continue to rely on the government to totally fund the education system. It’s important we encourage individuals who have been successful in life to support education.”

Mr Broomhead said Australia had a global competitive advantage in education.

“We may have a small population, but there are real niches where we can be world-class, including medical research and education,” he said.

“We need to ensure we maintain the highest standards possible.”

UQ Business School Academic Dean and Head Professor Andrew Griffiths said the school was seeking an internationally regarded professor with a strong research background who could create a high-quality learning experience for students.

About the UQ MBA

The UQ Business School program is ranked as one of the leading MBAs worldwide and number one in the Asia Pacific region. Its unique features help to set it apart from other MBA programs and provide added value to students.

While all MBA programs aim to develop leadership skills, UQ Business School’s Leadership Capability Framework provides visible evidence of your progress. There is also the chance to put your leadership skills into practice while working with community organisations, to collaborate with the renowned Wharton School on an international consultancy project, and to explore new markets on an MBA immersion tour.

UQ Business School’s reputation for research and its strong links with industry ensure fresh and relevant content, while the flexible study options allow you to fit in your learning alongside lifestyle and work commitments.

Macquarie Graduate School of Management ranked number one in Australia

The Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) has once again been ranked Australia’s top business school according to the Financial Times (FT). The School has also improved its global ranking, moving up 12 places to #56 worldwide.

MGSM is one of only three Australian business schools to make the prestigious top 100 along with the UNSW’s Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) and Melbourne Business School (MBS). All three schools improved their positions in the rankings this year with AGSM moving up 9 places to #66 and MBS moving up 3 places to #87.

Professor Alex Frino, Dean MGSM, said, “Australian schools should be proud of their performance as a whole. Education continues to be an important export for Australia and results like this improve the country’s reputation overall.

“Over the past year, MGSM has experienced the effects of this boost firsthand. Since entering the rankings, we’ve had 50% plus growth in international enrolments. Perhaps more importantly, is the quality of international students that have flooded MGSM with applications.”

According to Professor Alex Frino, MGSM’s outstanding result reflects the school’s ongoing commitment to providing students with the very best opportunities, which sets them up to achieve at the highest levels in their post-MBA career.

The Macquarie Graduate School of Management also climbed the rankings for research performance and the international mobility of its graduates.

“In these areas we have made significant effort by increasing our number of global partnerships with leading institutions and hiring the best financial, business, management and leadership minds to produce world-first research,” said Professor Frino.

“These improvements have paid off. This year, MGSM improved 10 places in research performance, and we were the only school to improve our international mobility ranking—we are now ranked 40th globally, up 14 places,” he said.

In 2015, Professor Frino introduced a Macquarie Graduate School of Management Board of Advice consisting of Chitra Ramkrishna, CEO of the National Stock Exchange Group India; Maureen Jensen, Chief Administrative Officer of the Ontario Securities Commission; Kim McKay, AO, CEO of the Australian Museum; Sir James Mirrlees, Nobel Laureate and Professor at the Chinese University Hong Kong; Professor Yu Yongda of Tsinghua University; and the Hon Andrew Rogers QC, Former Supreme Court Judge.

“I have assembled this group of highly experienced and respected professionals to discuss big picture issues, including the school’s vision and goals, the opportunities I am considering, our plans to get there and any obstacles we may face. They will be playing a key role in mentoring the school’s future progress,” said Professor Frino.

“With such talented professionals at the helm and a truly great ranking, I think I have every reason to be proud of our School and look forward to the year ahead.”

New ranking boost for Griffith MBA

The Griffith MBA’s reputation as one of the country’s leading programs has been reinforced with the Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) 5-Star rankings for 2015.

Griffith Business School is one of seven in Australia to receive top billing in the annual rankings.

This follows the September announcement that the Griffith MBA was rated number four in Australia in the 2015 Financial Review BOSS Magazine MBA survey.

“The GMAA rating is based upon a detailed independent quality assessment of the top business schools in Australia,” Griffith MBA Director Associate Professor Chris Fleming said.

“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.”

GMAA carries out an assessment of the top business schools in Australia as part of its mission to promote the standing of and enhance the value of MBA, DBA and other postgraduate management qualifications.

The process is recognised as a rigorous, independent evaluation across the country.

“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.

In the BOSS ranking, Griffith’s MBA was the big mover inside the top 10, climbing into the top five for the first time.

“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.

The core values of responsible leadership, sustainable business practice and a global orientation with an Asia Pacific focus are integral to how the Griffith MBA is delivered.

Like all MBAs, the Griffith MBA explores all the business disciplines you would expect—accounting and reporting, economics, finance, people management, marketing, strategy and innovation.

Macquarie Graduate School of Management moves up to 28th in the world

The Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) has moved to 28th in the world in rankings produced by The Economist, putting it in the top three business schools in the Asian timezone.

Dean Professor Alex Frino said the rankings reflected significant improvements made to the MGSM offering over the past two years.

“We have been focused heavily on our flagship Women in MBAs program, which has seen a significant increase in women participating in our degrees as well as $2.4 million in new scholarships,” he said. “We have also increased our staff-to-student ratios, implemented a strong alumni program and relaunched our career advisory service linking graduates with a wide range of professional opportunities.”

MGSM has seen more than 200% growth in international student applications over the past year, a result Professor Frino links to the improved ranking.

“Rankings are extremely important to international applicants, and we have seen a steady increase as we have incrementally improved our program and subsequently climbed the important rating scales,” he said. “Our top 100 Financial Times result early this year was the first significant demonstration of our improvement in quality and now to be top 30 in The Economist makes us very proud indeed.”

Education continues to be an important export for Australia and results like this improved the country’s reputation overall, Professor Frino said.

“We really want to ensure that Australia is a destination of choice for professionals from all over the world who want to further their education with a world-class degree,” he said. “We’ve been very active in promoting Australia globally and I believe strongly that education will grow in importance as a plank of the Australian economy over the near term.”

Professor Frino said that the Macquarie Graduate School of Management had invested in some significant new programs to roll out in 2016, further focusing on diversity in education.

“We’re working right now on a very exciting project that builds on the Women in MBA program,” he said. “Our sole aim is to produce leaders with a social conscience and a global mindset and we’re continually deepening our offering towards this goal. I’m looking forward to announcing our next important program in this area before the end of 2015.”

BOSS ranks Bond top for MBA satisfaction

Bond University’s Business School has come out on top for student satisfaction in the latest Australian Financial Review (AFR) BOSS MBA rankings.

Students also ranked Bond Business School number two for improvement in skills in the bi-annual Australia-wide rating, the only independent national ranking of MBA programs.

Bond Business School MBA

Study at Bond Business School

Bond Business School was named seventh overall for its MBA program and fourth for its Executive MBA program in the BOSS ranking.

Queensland emerged as a sought-after education destination, with six of the top 10 MBA programs and three of the top five Executive MBA programs at universities in the Sunshine State.

Bond Business Executive Dean, Professor Mark Hirst, said Bond had a longstanding reputation for student satisfaction.

“Bond Business School offers a unique model that focuses on small class sizes, a personalised teaching environment and practical skills, and that is key to our success,” he said.

“We consistently rate among the top universities for MBA and Executive MBA programs and to be listed as number one for student satisfaction is a real coup, and recognition that our students really value their experience at Bond.”

Bond MBA Director Neva Maxim said the university had a focus on student bonding from the outset, which created a positive teaching and learning environment for the MBA program, which can be completed at Bond in 12 months full time.

“We start the program with a three day retreat to set the tone for the students to work together and support each other, and all teaching staff know the students by name,” said Ms Maxim.

“Bond’s MBA offers a real diversity of nationalities, with students from 20 different countries enrolled in the program, allowing for shared business experiences and the formation of a worldwide network of contacts. A lot of students end up going into business together.

“With global business becoming the norm, a lot of universities, including Bond, teach cross cultural management and in the MBA program they live it every day.

“For example, we have a group working on a project that includes students from Papua New Guinea, the United States, Peru and Finland. It is an extremely valuable experience to have them all working together.”

Bond Executive MBA Director Professor Keith Duncan said the small program size and the opportunity to balance work, life and study appealed to Executive MBA students, who could complete their program in 13 months full time.

“We offer a mode of learning that allows for this balance, by providing eight day blocks every six weeks in which students can cover two subjects,” said Mr Duncan.

“It is very intensive, but it means they can focus fully on study during that time in a collaborative and supportive environment.”

Bond University Business School

Bond University’s one-year, full-time MBA program, designed by internationally renowned educators, blends the most current industry-relevant research with actual business challenges. Students work in small groups with an international cohort of professors, lecturers, high-profile guest speakers and fellow students, and operate at board level, steering a management team through the ever-changing panorama of real-world business challenges that impact real-world businesses. Bond offers the following programs:

  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • Master of Business Administration (Finance)
  • Master of Business Administration (Global Business)
