GRIFFITH BUSINESS SCHOOL MAKES TOP 200

GRIFFITH Business School has capped off a milestone year after being named among the world’s top 200 universities in economics.

It is the third year in a row that Griffith has been ranked among the top 4 per cent of world universities by Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU), and comes on the heels of Griffith opening its $38 million business school earlier this year.

Griffith and Queensland University are the only Queensland institutions included in the list, which is dominated by US universities.

Michael Powell, the Pro Vice-Chancellor Griffith Business School, regards the achievement as evidence of a hardworking personnel.

“The ARWU index is based on objective data relating to research performance, so this ranking is a testament to the remarkable work being done by the entire Griffith Business School,” Powell says. 

He says the new business school building on the Gold Coast campus has increased expectations of the coming times, with plans for further investment in the campus.

“We continue with the rollout of two new master degrees in finance from 2015 which will provide greater depth to our research arms,” he says.

Griffith Business School is rated 7th in the country within the economics and business research area, ensuring Griffith University maintains a place among the top 400 institutions globally.
