    Australian Graduate School of Management

    Australia's leading business school

    The 2001 annual meeting will be hosted by the Australian Graduate School of Management, University of New South Wales. For information on Sydney and Australia, visit their Web site on the 2001 AIB Meeting.

    The AGSM is a business school of both the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales. The AGSM is located in Sydney and operates branch campuses in Perth and Hong Kong. The AGSM offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) full-time as well as executive MBA (EMBA), which is studied part time, plus an extensive array of executive education programs.

    Although the AGSM faculty is small in number it is renowned for its research and teaching excellence. All AGSM faculty have international experience and most have extensive consulting experience. In the past year, their research has appeared in journals such as Organization Science, Operations Research, Journal of Applied Psychology, Strategic Management Journal, Management Science, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Journal of Marketing, Academy of Management Review, and Organizational Behaviour and Human Decision Processes

    The AGSM values its strong and varied links with business and the significant contribution industry makes to the overall direction of the school. Students benefit from the AGSM's relationships through the school's Advisory Council, comprising of 50 business and opinion leaders. This relationship is further strengthened by the AGSM's more than 100 executive programs, its venture capital incubator operations, and extensive research outreach programs.

    Like Australia itself, the AGSM is multicultural. Fifty-one percent of the School's MBA graduates are from the Asia Pacific region, 19 percent from Europe and 6 percent from North America. In July, 2000, the AGSM opened its MBA Program office on Hong Kong offering face-to-face teaching of its EMBA course and executive programs. The office is a central management centre for the school's operations throughout Asia. In 1999, the magazine Asia Inc rated the school the second-best business school in Asia (number one for MBA only programs) and the number one school in faculty reputation and research and executive programs.
