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.
