Business a bit ordinary on new rankings

Another day, another set of university rankings, but these aren’t as impressive as the THE physical science ratings (CMM, Tuesday), in which over half Australia’s public universities made the global top 500. This morning’s are from the QS organisation, which league-tables a bunch of business degrees.

Local leaders include the University of Melbourne, which rates fifth in the world on the masters of business list for its degree in business analytics. The University of Sydney is 24th for its masters of management, followed by the University of Wollongong, =77th for its project management degree. Bond U and Curtin Business School ranked in the 101-122 tranche. Three locals make the finance masters global list, the University of Queensland at 51, plus Bond U and Curtin U in the 101-131 group.

Just two Australian providers make the global top 100 MBAs, the Melbourne Business School (34) and the Australian Graduate Management School at UNSW. They are followed by the MGSM at Macquarie U (101-110), the University of Queensland Business School (111-120), UWA (121-130), Bond U, Deakin U, RMIT and University of Wollongong (151-200), and La Trobe U and Victoria Graduate School of Business in the 201+ group.
