RMIT’s Executive MBA program rose from last years’ rank of 95, coming in at 69 out of 141 global EMBA programs from around the world.
Professor Julie Cogin, Deputy Vice-Chancellor College of Business & Law at RMIT, said she was very proud the University offers such a distinctive program delivered by a world-class faculty.
“We've seen an increase in the demand of our MBA programs because they develop individuals into insightful, critical thinkers and decision makers who are able to balance the tension between shareholders and stakeholders to positively influence the future of business,” said Julie.
This was the fourth edition of the QS Executive MBA rankings that looked at five key categories:
· Career Outcomes
· Employer Reputation
· Executive Profile
· Thought Leadership
RMIT ranked 13th globally and 2nd in Asia Pacific in for Career Outcomes and 27th globally for Diversity.
Director of MBA Programs Associate Professor Panos Piperopoulos said that the ranking result was reflective of the distinctive program that RMIT offers and how graduates translate their knowledge into business practice.
“Our EMBA program stands out because it has design thinking at its core, which is rare in the market. Our students come to us because we provide them with industry relevant tools and techniques they can readily apply to their workplaces.”
Recent EMBA Graduate and Human Resources Executive, Katie Rooke reflected on the program and said that the focus on innovation at RMIT really made the program unique – it’s quite different to what other universities focus on and allowed her to learn a new mindset.
“I feel the EMBA has given me a more encompassing understanding of the world that might open that door down the track,” Rooke said.
