ACU MBA (Executive) course ranks among nation’s best

Published: Wednesday 23rd September 2015


The Australian Financial Review’s BOSS magazine has ranked ACU’s MBA (Executive) course as one of the best business degrees in the nation.

The BOSS MBA Executive rankings placed ACU’s School of Business second for Victoria and second in New South Wales, fourth for Queensland and sixth nationally among many elite universities. 

ACU’s MBAE provides excellent value for money, being the cheapest of the ranked Executive MBAs.  The only universities that were ahead of us in Victoria and NSW charge respectively $120,000 (University of Melbourne) and $90,000 (University of Sydney) as against $31,800 for our course (2015 prices).

Rankings were drawn from an alumni survey covering areas such as of quality of teaching staff, mode of delivery of coursework, application of real world experience to teaching, networking opportunities, ethics and value for money.

MBA Executive Programs Director Professor Grant Jones said the AFR Boss ranking is heavily weighted towards the results of an independently administered survey of a program’s alumni. 

This result is a return to us on the care we show our students and the effort we have put into developing a challenging and relevant curriculum. 

“One student summed up their experience brilliantly: ‘ACU made me feel valued as an individual, not just another revenue generating student. The quality and experience of ACU’s faculty and support staff is excellent. ACU did not rely on established reputation. They are building one that will become enviable’.   

“Other student praise included our ethical and sustainable thinking, high standard of teachers, and great location and facilities.

“The BOSS ranking is recognition of our growing reputation and excellence in business studies.”
