Sydney University's MBA ranks first in Australia

14 February 2024
The University of Sydney Business School's MBA is the highest new entrant in the prestigious Financial Times global MBA rankings.

The University of Sydney Business School’s coveted MBA program has ranked 1st in Australia in the prestigious Financial Times 2024 business school rankings.

The school ranked 63rd in the world and 11th in the Asia-Pacific region – a stellar result for the MBA’s first year of eligibility in the ranking, according to Business School Dean Professor Leisa Sargent.

“Being recognised by the Financial Times is not only a validation of our MBA program's quality, but also a reflection of our continuous pursuit of innovation, particularly in the areas of digital transformation, sustainability, and responsible leaders,” Professor Sargent said.

MBA Programs Director Professor Guy Ford said the school’s MBA goes beyond the fundamentals of business to teach resilience, adaptability, and innovative thinking.

When this new program was launched in 2018, we were determined to have created an MBA that equipped its graduates to thrive in a world of increasing ambiguity and complexity

“We thank our alumni, faculty, and industry partners for their contributions to the success of this program.”

The Financial Times feature reads: The Australian school made its ranking debut in joint 63rd place — the top new entrant. Its success can be attributed in part to the alumni career progress category, plus the high percentage of the most recent graduating class who found employment within three months of completing the course, and a large proportion of international students in its recent cohort.
