AGSM has again ranked among the world’s top Executive MBA programs in the global QS 2020 EMBA Rankings published today.
AGSM ranked 41st out of a global field of the world’s best part-time
Executive MBA programs. This year 161 Executive MBA programs entered (up from 156 global Executive MBA programs last year and 143 in 2018) and 141 EMBA programs were selected for the rankings. The AGSM Executive MBA ranked in the top 10 in Asia Pacific.
The QS Global EMBA Rankings consider five performance indicators, including Employer Reputation, Academic Reputation, Career Outcomes, Executive Profile and Diversity.
AGSM again performed well in Diversity (22nd globally), Thought Leadership and Career Outcomes categories.
Executive MBA programs bring together seasoned professionals from a variety of industries, functions, and world regions. The degree integrates students with a melting pot of experiences and perspectives that support the advanced curriculum.
“Diversity is an important indicator for Executive MBA programs,” said Maurizio Floris, AGSM Part-Time MBA Programs Director. “We look for diversity of experience and thought, as peer interaction and the opportunity to study alongside a cohort of people from different industries and life-experiences is one of the most valuable components of any part-time MBA program,” he said.
AGSM received an overall score 79.6 out of 100 for Diversity, amongst the top 15.6% globally and the top 28.6% in Asia Pacific for this indicator group. AGSM also performed strongly in Thought Leadership Academic (73.5) and Career Outcomes (67.4).
AGSM witnessed a spike in enrollments in part-time MBA programs for Term 2, 2020 with pre-census enrolments in the EMBA up 30% and the fully online MBAX up 115% on last year’s enrolments.
AGSM @ UNSW Business School was established more than 40 years ago to enhance the quality of leadership in Australia.
“While our mission remains the same as it was when we were founded, the world in which we live and work is changing rapidly and is increasingly complex,” said Floris. “Our purpose is to equip a new generation of leaders to make an impact in an accelerating world. Enhancing leadership capability has never been more important and is our primary purpose. The organisations we serve – business, government, for-purpose organisations and the community – need leaders who can help them make a positive impact in an increasingly complicated world,” he said.
“Our teaching style is adaptive and experiential. Students are immersed in active learning experiences and exposed to practical skills and tools they can immediately apply to real business problems, equipping them to contribute to an inclusive and forward-looking society.”
