The Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) at UNSW Business School has ranked 43rd in the Financial Times (UK) 2018 Best MBAs for Entrepreneurship global rankings released on July 4.
This is the first time AGSM has been included in the list of the world’s top schools with MBA programmes designed to nurture the leadership skills of entrepreneurs.
“AGSM consistently ranks among the world’s best schools of management for our full-time, part-time, and online MBA programmes, as well as Executive Education,” said Nick Wailes, AGSM director and deputy dean UNSW Business School.
“Ranking in the world’s top 50 MBAs for Entrepreneurship is recognition of our commitment to developing a new generation of leaders. One of the hallmarks of a modern, contemporary MBA is the flexibility it provides for students to explore their leadership potential.”
The skills of an entrepreneur can be used to launch companies, revive acquired businesses, or create growth and cultural change within an organisation. AGSM focuses on helping students discover their own strengths and weaknesses to operate within this fast-pasted environment and assists them to build strong foundations and effective teams based on this knowledge.
AGSM scored highly in several categories and among the highest in the Motivation metric (9.2 out of a possible 10 points). The Motivation metric is calculated based the extent to which the skills gained during the MBA encouraged the entrepreneurs to start a company.
Earlier this year, AGSM ranked 63rd in the Financial Times (UK) 2018 Global Fulltime MBA Ranking, 8th in the Financial Times (UK) 2018 Online MBA Rankings, and 44th in the global Financial Times (UK) 2018 Global Executive Education Rankings.
