The AGSM MBA Program is the leading full-time MBA program in Australia and 35th in the world in the 2011 Financial Times (UK) ranking of global MBA programs.
This is the 12th consecutive year the AGSM MBA Program, delivered by the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales, has ranked in the top 100 MBA programs worldwide. It is also the fifth year running it has ranked in the world's top 50.
Professor Alec Cameron, Dean of the Australian School of Business, said the ranking confirmed the strength of the AGSM MBA program.
"While the overall rank improved from 36th in 2010 to 35th this year, there was considerable improvement in two particular areas - the extent to which alumni achieved their aims for doing the MBA, and career progress," he said.
Last week marked the arrival of new students starting in the 2011 full-time AGSM MBA class.
Professor Chris Adam, Associate Dean of Postgraduate Programs, said: "[These] rankings consolidate the AGSM MBA's position as a truly global leader in management education and business leadership development.
"This enables us to attract high calibre students from around the world to Sydney. The quality of our new students is borne out by their GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) scores, which are the highest for many years," he said.
