Business School's Master's in Management named one of world's best by Financial Times...again

21 Sep 2011

In its 2011 rankings, international business newspaper, The Financial Times, has again rated the CEMS Master's in International Management (MIM) - offered exclusively in Australia by the University of Sydney Business School - as one of the top management programs in the world.

CEMS MIM was ranked as the number two pre-experience management program in the world behind the Universität St.Gallen of Switzerland and ahead of third ranked HEC, Paris. The Business School program remains in first position on combined international results for the period of 2009-2011. The program has been in the top 3 ever since the ranking began in 2005.

These results confirm that the University of Sydney's CEMS Master's in International Management program continues to provide a world-class management education experience for students, offering them unparalleled hands-on industry and international experience while they are studying; and an increased chance of gaining employment following graduation.

Master of Management Program Director, Nigel Finch said this years result reflected continual improvements in the course and the high calibre of graduates that the program consistently produces.

"We are proud to offer one the world's top ranked management degrees at the Business School and hope independent recognition such as this will help us continue to attract the best and brightest minds to experience this unique program."

The CEMS MIM is a global degree program jointly taught at 25 of the world's leading business schools, including the University of Sydney Business School 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 Business School's Master of Management degree, are able to participate in the CEMS MIM program.

Improved results in 8 categories

The CEMS MIM improved in 8 categories compared with the 2010 ranking, including an "Aims Achieved" score of 86% and a Careers Rank gain of 9 places. It was also ranked 1st in the world for International Faculty, 3rd for International Course Experience and International Students and 5th for International Alumni Mobility.

CEMS Executive Director François Collin was especially pleased to see the sustained success of recent years consolidated by these improved results:

"For 7 years the CEMS MIM has been ranked amongst the top 3 pre-experience Master's in Management programmes. Improving in so many categories underlines that we are continually building upon this success, thanks to the excellence of our graduating students and alumni and the trajectory that their careers take. The first place in the 3-year ranking confirms this fact".
