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.”

About Melbourne Business School

Melbourne Business School (MBS) is the University of Melbourne’s graduate school in business and economics. Founded in 1963, they are a leading provider of management education in the Asia Pacific region.

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.

Bond University MBA graduates forming bonds across borders

One of the most culturally diverse groups of MBA students ever seen at Bond University has just graduated from the Faculty of Business, donning caps and gowns to receive their degrees.

The tight-knit group of 33 students travelled from all corners of the globe to complete their MBA on the Gold Coast, with students from America, China, Hong Kong, Peru, Brazil, Switzerland, Malaysia, India, Canada, Germany, South Africa, the Gambia, Bahrain, Sri Lanka, and Australia all graduating in the ceremony, held this past February.

Shiny Su, who runs a large manufacturing business in Shanghai supplying items to Australia for a range of well-known fashion brands, said studying at Bond had inspired many new ideas for the expansion of her business.

“As head of an import/export business, it is very important for me to understand the Australian market to build successful relationships with clients,” said Ms Su.

“Completing my MBA at Bond was an invaluable experience, because Bond is truly an ‘international’ university where I was able to forge connections with people from all over the world.

“I learnt a whole new way of thinking that I will apply to my manufacturing business in China.”

Fellow graduate Jamilatou Saidy said she will implement the skills learnt during her MBA when she returns to her position as Consumer Affairs Manager at the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority in the Gambia, a small West African Nation with a population of less than two million.

“Graduating with an MBA from Bond University will help me to further my career at home in the Gambia, where my role is to help regulate the telecommunications and energy sector to ensure companies are meeting standards and consumers are getting what they pay for,” said Ms Saidy.

“I chose Bond because I was able to complete my degree in one year, which is half the time of other universities.”

Ms Saidy flew from Boston to Dubai, Perth, Sydney and finally the Gold Coast to attend the graduation ceremony, before returning to her family in the Gambia.

“I am thrilled to stand here with all the close friends I have made in the last year, even though it meant living away from my family,” she said.

Director of the Masters of Business Administration program Neva Maxim said the group worked very closely throughout the one-year program and had become more like family.

“It’s one of the most diverse groups we have ever had,” said Ms Maxim.

“There’s a wealth of information gained by having students from so many backgrounds, and they don’t shy away from saying exactly how things work in their own countries.”

A cohort of students from the Faculty of Business, Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, Faculty of Law, and Faculty of Society and Design have also just graduated.

An unprecedented number of Bond Law School‘s successful mooters were awarded law degrees as part of the graduation, with 16 students having represented the university in Australian and international mooting competitions over the course of their studies.

Star mooters Rob Leonard and Rupert Holden, who both just graduated, together represented Bond at over 10 mooting competitions including the Jessop International Law Moot, the Animal Law Moot and the International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot.

The Newcastle Business School (Central Coast) has been engaged by NSW Trade & Investment to provide research and evaluation services to support the NSW Government’s $1.5 million Smart Work Hub Pilot Program.

The NSW Smart Work Hub Pilot Program is providing funding support for the establishment and operation of five Smart Work Hubs to be located at Rouse Hill, Oran Park Town, Penrith, Gosford and Wyong.

University of Newcastle Business School

Study at the University of Newcastle

A Smart Work Hub is a facility or space that offers workers an alternative to working in their normal place of work or working from home—teleworking from a third space, which is usually focused around a large commuter population.

The Newcastle Business School research team, led by University of Newcastle Associate Professor Martin Fitzgerald, will collect data and evaluate the outcomes of the Smart Work Hubs funded under the Pilot Program to better understand user demand and the benefits for business and the NSW economy.

Professor Fitzgerald said the team’s research would be used to determine whether successful operating models and market demand could be established to attract further private sector investment.

“Our team has extensive experience in the telework research space, and this latest work forms part of our broader agenda focusing on innovation management and the twenty-first-century workforce,” Professor Fitzgerald said.

“The Newcastle Business School is excited to have been granted the opportunity for involvement with this innovative NSW Government program.”

The interdisciplinary UON research team is comprised of Associate Professor Fitzgerald, Dr Ashish Malik, Dr Philip Rosenberger III and Dr Anton Kriz.

University of Newcastle Business School

As one of the first institutions in Australia to offer an MBA, the university takes pride not only in their legacy of innovative teaching and learning, but also in our role in developing future leaders in business. The business school has built on their pioneering teaching method of problem-based learning and tailored it to today’s workplace by teaching skills such as leadership, cultural sensitivity, presentation and debating as part of their programs. Newcastle business programs are designed to deliver these crucial business skills in a real-life, practical setting.
