You can read a description of it here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Australian-Institute-of-Business/231535603534758?sk=info It seem to be a legal Australian MBA. It's in no rankings, so I would expect the bare minimum of quality from it.

Better check out some of the other schools in Adelaide, as AIB is relatively unknown:

University of South Australia - International Graduate School of Business (IGSB)
The University of Adelaide - Adelaide Graduate School of Business (AGSB)

Hi guys, was just doing some research on these people and I just came across this.... seems like they are in rankings after all. Penny for your thoughts?

What a ridiculous ranking. It doesn't consider the students' outcomes.

Thanks for that JK! Though honestly quite confused here... what are student outcomes meant to be/mean? I know this may sound rather dim but I've just looked at the Times Higher Education methodology which doesn't state student outcomes explicitly either.

http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/2011-12/world-ranking/methodology

The Financial Times ranking also says that they use data from student questionnaires... so I'm assuming that they got feedback from those who were happy with the program.

Really confused. If each ranking has different criteria and not all schools participate in all rankings (it seems to be, as some are missing from others here!), which rankings should I trust?

Should I just do any normal MBA like this one which you reckon meets the bare minimum, then get a DBA from a good school, or fork out the investment in both qualifications?

The THES doesn't produce a ranking of graduate professional schools. If it did, then their success in finding appropriate work might be included. All the main rankings of MBAs do. Take a look at http://www.find-mba.com/article/625/mba-rankings-finding-the-best-business-schools to see the most respected rankings.

The FT data includes audited data from the schools. Not only happy participants respond.

I don't know what your goals are, but I can't see a reason to do a weak MBA if you can get into a strong one.

Start here:
http://www.find-mba.com/article/625/mba-rankings-finding-the-best-business-schools

And see a list of reputable rankings here:
http://www.find-mba.com/mba-rankings

I would use these somewhat holistically - as you're right, each has its own set of criteria. And some are better at covering international schools vs. US-based ones.

Unfortunately, there are not any really good Australia-specific rankings (that I know of.)

Thanks for that, Duncan.

It's surprising to see that Monash is rated so highly! Its full-time program is pretty interesting though - less expensive than the one at Melbourne Business School, and can be completed at an accelerated pace in one year.

Eduniversal is ranking whole schools rather than just their MBA programmes. Monash has a full service school with substantial research activity.
