Sydney Business School, University of Wollongong (UOW) has maintained its high ranking in CEO Magazine’s annual Global Master of Business Administration (MBA) Rankings.

The MBA program at Sydney Business School, UOW was given a Tier One ranking and the Executive MBA (EMBA) program was ranked 11th globally (and 1st in Australia) in the 2023 Global MBA Rankings.

This year, CEO Magazine reached out to business schools across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, India, China and South Africa, and ranked data from 121 schools, offering 239 different programs in 24 countries (76 online, 68 EMBA and 95 full-time and part-time MBA programs).

Using a ranking system entirely geared and weighted towards fact-based criteria, CEO Magazine aims to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.

The criteria the programs are judged on are: quality of faculty, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty to student ratio, price, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity, and delivery methods.

Schools are ranked as Tier One or Tier Two based on their overall percentage score from these data points.

Professor Colin Picker, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, was delighted with the news.

“I am thrilled to see that our high quality and innovative EMBA program has been recognised as the best in Australia,” he said.

“Our EMBA program has climbed to 11th place globally, making us the highest ranked EMBA program within Australia, and one of only two EMBA programs from Australia ranked within the 63 globally ranked programs.

“This result for our EMBA program continues our climb in the global rankings from 28th position in 2021 and 26th position in 2022.

“It’s wonderful to see Sydney Business School, UOW go from strength to strength every year. It’s a testament to the quality of our teaching and programs.”
