The latest edition shows Curtin is ranked as one of the top 40 online MBA providers globally and one of only four Australian university providers to feature in the list.

Curtin University Faculty of Business and Law Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel de Bussy said there has never been a more important time for universities to offer quality online courses.

“As the current pandemic continues to disrupt conventional learning, Curtin is proud to offer a consistently high quality online MBA program that offers students a seamless learning experience,” Professor de Bussy said.

“The QS Rankings are a highly regarded source of comparative data in terms of online MBAs and I am delighted Curtin has again been recognised as an outstanding provider.”

QS ranks business schools’ online MBA programs according to four metric groups: employability, diversity and access, the standard of the learning experience, and the quality of the class experience.

Newly appointed Curtin MBA Director Dr Dorothy Wardale said Curtin’s MBA offering is continuing to evolve with a sharp focus on the student and connection to industry.

“Curtin’s MBA is already world-class – offering outstanding specialisations (particularly in Oil and Gas) as well as industry engagement opportunities. Now we are adding to our program with specialisations in Digital Marketing and Enterprise and Innovation,” Dr Wardale said.

“The latest QS ranking is another international recognition for Curtin’s flagship MBA, which is the only course in WA, and one of only four in Australia, to hold EPAS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

“Curtin is also proud to offer a highly flexible MBA program. Students can start when it suits them, with three intakes a year in January, May and August; there are multiple MBA entry pathways; and we have a number of scholarships that support international students, women, and indigenous students.”
