For the fourth consecutive year, the Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) has awarded a 5 star rating to La Trobe Business School's MBA program.
La Trobe is the only Victorian university to receive GMAA's highest rating four years running.
'We welcome this prestigious rating as another confirmation of the quality and relevance of our MBA,' said Head of La Trobe Business School, Professor Paul Mather.
The GMAA Star Rating is a rigorous and independent assessment of the top Australian MBA programs. The GMAA assesses and gives a star rating from 1–5 to reflect the program's standard and value.
This helps prospective students to evaluate MBA programs and enables business schools to measure the relevance and rigour of their course.
Part of the star rating is an assessment of the MBA provider's corporate relationships and links with the business community. La Trobe Business School takes pride in its industry connections.
'Achieving a 5 star rating for the fourth consecutive year acknowledges these connections and assures our current and prospective MBA students, as well as our alumni, of the value of their qualification in business,' said La Trobe MBA Director, Professor Amalia Di Iorio.
The renewal of the GMAA 5 star rating follows the La Trobe MBA's EPAS re-accreditation in May this year. This prestigious accreditation, awarded by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), evaluates the quality of business or management programs that have an international perspective.
