The Australian Institute of Business (AIB) MBA achieves Top Ranking!

AIB adds another achievement to its impressive list. In January 2013 their MBA Programme offered at CTS College of Business and Computer Science was ranked #3 in Australia and #10 in the world by CEO Magazine (UK). This achievement is a pristine testament to the quality, standards and practical attributes of the MBA that make it such a valued and globally recognised qualification.

 

The division of CEO Magazine that publishes rankings is called the International Graduate Forum (IGF). IGF set about identifying business schools that met the expectations of students and the industry; they selected schools from Europe, North America and Australia. Some of the criteria used in the ranking system included Accreditation, International Diversity, class size and student ratios, International Diversity and faculty with PhD’s and business backgrounds to name a few. According to the IGF, MBA ranking tables not only demonstrated the qualities today’s MBA applicants look for, they were, and are, capable of challenging the established, globally recognised MBA providers.

 

In addition the MBA was impressively featured by CEO magazine in a full 5 page spread. This achievement by AIB is further validation that AIB is a leading Business school and the MBA programme is one of the best in the world. It is testament to the highest quality standards, business/ career enhancements and practical approach that alumni from over 70 countries have experienced over the last 25 years.

 

At CTS College of Business and Computer Science, we believe that with a combination of outstanding student support and quality faculty/lecturing services, the now internationally ranked MBA will give students a competitive advantage!
