University of Sydney management program ranked 2nd globally by Financial Times
30 Sep 2010
In its 2010 rankings, leading international publication, The Financial Times, has again rated the CEMS Master's in International Management (MIM) - offered exclusively in Australia by the University of Sydney - as one of the top management programs in the world.
CEMS MIM ranked as the number two pre-experience management program in the world and remains in first position on combined international results.
These just-published results confirm that the University of Sydney's CEMS Master's in International Management meets the needs of a highly international and mobile student cohort, enabling them to gain employment very soon after graduation in the sector of their choice.
The CEMS MIM is a global degree program jointly taught at 25 of the world's leading business schools, including the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Sydney through its Master of Management degree. The CEMS Masters in International Management provides postgraduate students with a unique blend of top-level education and professional experience, including international internships opportunities.
The University of Sydney is the only Australian business school that is part of the CEMS alliance and only students enrolled in the Faculty's Master of Management degree, are able to participate in the CEMS MIM program.
Master of Management Program Director, Nigel Finch said it was a well-deserved result for an outstanding program.
"The CEMS MIM just keeps going from strength to strength and the outstanding calibre of students we are producing shows why this is one of the world's top ranked management degrees. We're very proud to be a part of it."
A collective success for the CEMS MIM and the CEMS alliance
The CEMS MIM is this year ranked the number two pre-experience Master's in Management in the world in the global Financial Times ranking, closely followed by nine member schools in the top 25. Of these, 18 CEMS member schools appear in total, continuing the omnipresence of the CEMS alliance, its Master's in International Management programme and its member schools in the ranking.
The CEMS MIM emerges once more as the number one program for combined international results (international faculty, student and board diversity, alumni mobility and international course experience) and features in joint-top position in the three-year ranking. The CEMS MIM has permanently featured in the top three since the creation of the ranking in 2005. This provides further confirmation of the long-term success of the programme.
Meeting the international career aspirations of students
The CEMS MIM improved in six categories of the ranking compared with the 2009 edition, including an "Aims Achieved" score of 83% and an "Employed at three months" score of 99%. It was also ranked 4th in the world for international course experience and 5th for international mobility.
These results are a particular source of satisfaction for CEMS Executive Director François Collin: "It is especially pleasing to see that the needs and ambitions of CEMS MIM students are being satisfied. A recent independent survey identifies international career opportunities as the key criterion for students choosing to take our program. The Financial Times result confirms that they are achieving their professional aims very soon after graduation".
