The Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) has awarded the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) four stars in its latest review of MBA Programs. The 2015 GMAA five-star assessment is designed as an index of the quality of MBA Programs provide in Australia to onshore students.
USQ Australia MBA Program Director Associate Professor Jane Summers said she was pleased with the result which acknowledged USQ as a leading provider in Australia. “It is a testament to the quality of our program and commitment to delivering the best outcomes for our students,” she said.
This GMAA result follows the recent release of the BOSS ranking, revealing the USQ MBA in the top five MBA programs in Australia. USQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Jan Thomas said these results were a testament to the University’s commitment to creating a globally-acknowledged MBA program.
The USQ MBA is focused on qualifying students for a wide range of public or private positions nationally and internationally. It’s a flexible degree that covers change and sustainability across global markets and contexts, as well as areas of contemporary business management.
This year also saw the release of the new Federal Government data which indicated that USQ graduates found work quicker and earned more in their first job compared to most other Australian universities.
The Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching (QILT) website, funded by the Department of Education and Training, was designed to give feedback from thousands of students about their experiences studying higher education in Australia. As reported in the Australian Financial Review, USQ is in the top two county-wide for starting salaries and top three for graduate employment.
