The University of Sydney Business School has ranked first in Australia in two recent global rankings of the Master of Management program.
This year’s Financial Times’ rankings saw the University of Sydney Business School climb four places since last year, scoring above average for career progress of Master of Management alumni.
Similarly, the QS Business Masters Rankings saw the University of Sydney’s Master of Management rising two places since last year’s rankings. The program is now ranked first in Asia and 26th in the world. This year a total of 159 programs were assessed
Professor Greg Whitwell, Dean of the Business School, credited the rankings success to high-quality work of staff, students and partners.
"Business schools and universities are key to building future leaders with well-rounded experience. For this reason, top employers around the globe are headhunting our graduates," said Professor Whitwell.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has hit industries and graduates to varying degrees, but we take great pride in the critical thinking skills that our graduates demonstrate on a daily basis."
Employability at the heart of Sydney’s success

The strengths of the program are mirrored in the Financial Times ranking. Sydney ranked 18th in the world for career progress, which measured changes in the level of seniority and the size of the company at which alumni work.
Program Director of the Master of Management, Associate Professor Betina Szkudlarek , said: "We design the program in close collaboration with numerous industry leaders. In less than a year, our students gain skills, know-how and expertise employers desperately look for in today’s highly precarious job market."
"This strong ranking result is a reflection of the staff that work on the program, and the ability of the Business School to successfully integrate business leaders into the classroom," said Lance Graham who is the Program Manager.
Last month, the Business School released a new report on the experience of students who participated in work-integrated learning programs.
