Griffith University continues to cement its reputation as one of Australia’s leading educational institutions with the release of the Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) 5-star rankings.

The University attained one of the prized top ratings of five stars for their MBA program in 2016, which reinforces their position as an industry leader in the field of business.

The Griffith MBA is already well credentialed, ranked No. 4 in Australia by the Australian Financial Review BOSS Magazine and is among the country’s leading MBA programs in the CEO Magazine’s ranking.

Pro Vice Chancellor of Business, Professor David Grant, says the ranking results further demonstrate Griffith Business School’s commitment to producing high-quality, cutting edge content that ensures graduates are ready for the modern workplace.

“We are delighted that GMAA have once again awarded the Griffith MBA five stars,” Professor Grant says. “The award reflects both the program’s innovative content as well as the commitment of our high-calibre staff to delivering a quality product.”

He continues: “The Griffith MBA has once again been recognised as producing graduates who are the kind of cutting edge thinkers able to navigate the challenges, and to take advantage of the opportunities, that prevail in the contemporary business environment.”

Professor Linda Trenberth, Dean (Academic) for GBS and acting Pro Vice Chancellor, agreed that the ranking is further proof of the School’s commitment to quality.

“Over the years we have received strong ratings from the GMAA even though through the years they have changed their criteria as the MBA market develops,” Professor Trenberth explains. “Thus that we continue to achieve the top rating is a reinforcement that the Griffith MBA has and continues to be a leading and high-quality MBA.

“The Griffith MBA probably has the most progressive values of any MBA in the market,” the Professor continues. “As we look forward, the Griffith MBA is continuing to develop in terms of its teaching practices and content to offer leading-edge content to a high standard.

“Winning this award pushes us to continue to improve in our offering of a great program and a great student experience.”

The GMAA rankings are geared towards assessing the top business schools in the country to emphasise the value of post-graduate qualifications, and help prospective students identify prospective learning institutions.
