Self-reported Score:

This review is for Melbourne

Program August Intake

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Excellent program services with the best career connections among any business school IF you’re planning to move/stay in Melbourne or Australia in general, and to a lesser extent South East Asia (Melbourne University is highly regarded in the region).

The school does employ a curved grading system, so expect some competition among the class. Overall however, the class is tightly knit with and operates as a team.

The best classes in the program (marketing, brand management, game theory among others) are truly world class.

Main suggestion: spend your time polishing your GMAT. The school (unfortunately) stresses this dimension above any other metric and generous scholarships are available if you meet the bar.

About professors, classes and curriculum

MBS has a fairly well rounded faculty, with particular strength in marketing and strategy, and weakness in OB. Speaking to colleagues from other business school (LBS, INSEAD etc), MBS’ program go into more depth.

About job placement process

With good grades, experience, and case interview practice, MBB and other strategy firms are not out of reach. All of the main firms recruit on campus.
Overall the school is highly focused on consulting but has good success placing its students in good jobs in various industries.
