AGSM @ UNSW Business School’s Full-Time MBA ranked among the world’s top 100 in the latest Financial Times (UK) 2020 Global MBA Rankings released on Monday.

Ranked 88th in a field that includes the world’s best business schools, AGSM ranked in the top 10% of schools on important diversity metrics including percentage of female faculty and percentage of female students. AGSM ranked 6th out of 100 schools on international mobility, calculated by alumni citizenship and the countries where they worked before their MBA, on graduation and three years after graduation.

AGSM also moved up four points in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) metric introduced by the Financial Times in last year’s Global MBA Rankings.

“AGSM creates a holistic learning experience based on the principles of ethics, sustainability, and diversity and inclusion,” said Dr Michele Roberts, AGSM Academic Director. “Our programs equip leaders to be adaptable and resilient with a growth mindset that equips them to see the world differently and adapt a holistic view, rather than be transfixed by change.

Our students are immersed in active learning experiences and are exposed to practical skills and tools they can immediately apply to real-world business problems, whether they work in a corporate, for-purpose, or government sector,” she said.

The Financial Times global MBA rankings are calculated primarily on the career outcomes of the AGSM Full-Time MBA class that graduated in 2016.

The FT Rankings have strict entry criteria and are based on a two-part survey; one that evaluates alumni salary and experience on the program (59% of ranking), and the other, information about the school such as calibre of faculty, strength in research and diversity of cohort. The alumni surveyed this year were the 2016 Full-Time MBA cohort. For schools to be ranked, 20% of alumni must complete the survey.
