Uni of Adelaide MBA ranked top 2 in the nation

Friday, 13 September 2019

The University of Adelaide's highly regarded MBA program is now rated second of all business school MBAs in the nation, according to the latest The Australian Financial Review BOSS magazine rankings.

The Adelaide MBA has moved up steadily over the last four ranking results, from 10 to now the number 2 spot in the BOSS rankings, confirming its position as a leading Australian MBA program and the very best offered in the State.

“We have reshaped the MBA to not only focus on technical skills but also the skills that employers are looking for, for example, the ability to work in teams, critical and lateral thinking, the development of a strong cache of EQ and of course, leadership. This result is strong endorsement of our business model," says Adelaide MBA Director Damian Scanlon.

“In our approach, the student's personal development is central to the program. The Adelaide MBA is a contemporary, rich, and transformative personal and executive leadership journey. We recognise that this journey is about introducing new skills and strengthening the skills our students already have; sharing those skills with their colleagues; and having the chance to interact with their peers and develop lifelong networks.

“Indeed, we have a strong alumni/student mentor program, and our Adelaide Business School alumni network and Advisory Board is represented in leadership roles both in big companies, and successful small and family businesses.

“Our students are encouraged to challenge assumptions by our teachers who all have extensive industry experience and explore more effective approaches to managing and leading rather than endorsing current management practice.

“Importantly, our subjects don’t stand alone but are linked and integrated. Our curriculum respects the experience our students bring to the class room and leverages that experience in a strongly collaboratively learning environment,” Mr Scanlon says.

The University of Adelaide's MBA is one of very few in Australia with 100% teaching staff having extensive and current business involvement, making each course applied and practical.

The University maintains stringent entry requirements, which ensures Adelaide MBA students are of a high calibre with significant work experience. As a result, students leverage the experiences from a talented peer group which works to build an intimate and engaging learning experience.

The BOSS rankings included an assessment of the curriculum, meaning the standard of coursework and learning outcomes are considered to be of an exceptional quality.
