Often referred to as “Australia’s Cultural Capital”, Melbourne has been consistently rated the World’s Most Liveable City by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) for years. Considered the center of Australia’s sporting and entertainment, Melbourne also serves as the center of business education, with the elite Melbourne Business School nestled in the heart of the city.
Melbourne Business School, which taught its first class in 1963, offers four paths to an MBA. The first and most common of these is the full-time MBA program, which was shortened from 16 to 12 months in 2014. The program is capsulated in various modules, with the first six months being core material and the latter six months being comprised of the student’s choice of electives. The average age for entering students is 28, each with approximately five years of work experience. In addition to the full-time program, MBS also offers a two-year part-time MBA program, an 18-month executive MBA taught at Mt. Eliza, and a 14-month senior executive MBA program.
The school offers the oldest MBA program in Australia. MBS is a fantastic choice for domestic Australians looking to join an upper-echelon group of business leaders in both Australia and internationally. The school still retains its place as the number one destination for an MBA in Australia as a result of its largely positive domestic and international reputation.
Poets&Quants’ latest ranking of the MBS MBA as being the 24th ranked MBA in the world (outside the U.S.) speaks volumes about its program. Poets&Quants combines the results from all of the most influential rankings in the world. In these rankings, it is the highest ranked business school in Australia and one of the highest ranked in the Asia-Pacific region.
