Deloitte reaffirms commitment to world-class Master of Management Program
16 Dec 2013
The consulting firm, Deloitte, has reaffirmed its strong commitment to the University of Sydney Business School's Master of Management program which was recently ranked by the prestigious Financial Times (FT) as Australia's premier course of its type.
The internationally respected FT also ranked the Business School's Master of Management in the top five courses in Asia and the top 50 in the world.
At a function held to celebrate the rankings success, Deloitte Partner, Stuart Osborne, said his company was "delighted" to be associated with the Business School's industry oriented Master of Management program.
Deloitte has been an industry partner since the Master of Management was established in 2009. "This program and its enormous success, reflects the synergies between industry and the Business School," said Professor John Shields, Associate Dean (Postgraduate Coursework).
At the celebratory event, the Academic Director, Master of Management, Dr Kristine Dery, said it had been a wonderful opportunity to thank the students and the corporate partners who had contributed to the program's success.
The guest speaker at the event, Deloitte's Managing Partner, New South Wales, John Meacock, focused on the firm's latest report in a series called Building the Lucky Country, which looks at business imperatives for a prosperous Australia.
Commenting shortly after the FT rankings were published in September, Co-Dean, Professor Tyrone Carlin said they had validated the University of Sydney Business School's "well defined strategy" to join the world's leading Business Schools.
"Our strategy is focused on high quality infrastructure, a high quality curriculum underpinned by experiential learning and a high quality cohort of students admitted to our courses," Professor Carlin said. "We can take considerable pride in this ranking which provides independent validation of our strategy."
