University of South Australia's Online MBA Earns Top Place In 2019 CEO Magazine Ranking

CEO Magazine has ranked the University of South Australia’s (UniSA) Online MBA as the number one online MBA in Australia and number six globally. 

The success of UniSA’s online MBA builds on the University’s heritage of excellent online and face-to-face business education and its innovation in reshaping the MBA for online delivery. 

UniSA Director of the MBA and Executive Education Peter Stevens said the results reflected the University’s commitment to delivering an MBA that was as strong and engaging if you come to classes in Adelaide, as it is if you are studying at home in Sydney, outback Queensland or any location around the world. 

“Our MBA is totally flexible, you can study face-to-face, online or in a blended mode, it is all about what fits in with your life and career,” Stevens said. 

“In the online space we have designed the programs so that they include real time virtual classrooms to maximize learning not only from our academics but also from your student cohort, which is especially valuable for MBA students who have industry leadership experience to bring to the discussions.” 

The CEO Magazine rating confirms UniSA’s long success in developing an MBA program with real credibility and a reputation for excellence and relevance. 

The Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) has awarded UniSA’s MBA 5 stars and AFR BOSS Magazine has placed it in Australia’s top 10 MBAs, for the past 10 consecutive years, the only MBA in Australia to be recognized over such a sustained period. 

Pro Vice Chancellor (Business and Law) UniSA Business School, Prof Marie Wilson says recognition of the MBA in the world’s top six online MBAs in is another first for an Australian MBA.

“One of the special aspects of our degree is that we have partnered with the with the Australian Institute of Company Directors to deliver the Company Directors Course inside our MBA,” Prof Wilson says. 

“We’re the only MBA in Australia to include this opportunity within the program and that is invaluable. 

“We also offer some incredible opportunities to travel to China, Europe, Mexico and other countries to complete intensive international study tours and frame the MBA education in a global context.”
