Griffith University’s popular MBA program has retained prestigious Tier One status in CEO Magazine’s 2021 Global MBA Rankings and Griffith Business School’s Online MBA program was ranked fourth in the country for the second year in a row.
338 programs from 180 business schools from across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the BRICS were ranked slightly differently this year, given a climate of pandemic.
Scores were expressed as an average based upon data received over a four-year period
MBA Director Associate Professor Stephanie Schleimer said the results were well deserved recognition of the Griffith Business School program’s exceptional quality and the diversity of talented staff who delivered the Griffith MBA.
“To remain in the top four MBA programs in Australia in the CEO Magazine ranking is reward for the extensive work that goes into ensuring excellent quality of all aspects of the program and its courses by so many colleagues over the last four years,” Associate Professor Schleimer said.
“Being recognised again as a ‘Tier One’ University in 2021 confirms we are on the right path in delivering a program of exceptional standard.
“This achievement also echoes the ongoing feedback we regularly receive from those who complete our MBA and have gone on to shape the new future of business.
“Our MBA alumni are socially responsible modern business leaders.”
“Every day they are contributing to a prosperous, equitable and sustainable future through their creative thinking, strategic decision-making and forward-thinking mindset.”
The Griffith MBA explores all of the business disciplines you would expect, from accounting and reporting to economics, finance, people management, marketing, strategy and innovation.
“What makes a Griffith MBA different is that it’s built on core values that are crucial to doing business in the 21st century: sustainable business practices, responsible leadership and an Asia-Pacific perspective,” she said.
“Our students are using their Griffith MBA education to pursue socially responsible business careers. They are launching their own community focused not-for-profits and tech start-ups and making inroads at giants like Amazon and Google, even creating innovative sustainable business solutions before they’ve actually graduated.”
CEO Magazine ranked Griffith’s MBA offering against a range of fact-based criteria, including quality of faculty, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty to student ratio, price, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity and delivery method.
Of the 338 different programs ranked across 27 countries, there were 89 online courses, 90 Executive MBA courses and 159 full-time and part-time MBA programs.
