UQ Business School’s reputation as one of the country’s top institutions for business-related research has been confirmed in the latest Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) ratings.

The School is ranked as above world standard in all areas of its research activity. It scored the highest possible rating of five – ‘well above world standard’ - for research in business and management; banking, finance and investment; and information systems. Of particular note, in both the finance and information systems categories only one other university achieved a rating of five, while in the management category only four other universities shared this stellar rating.

The School also scored the second-highest rating of four – ‘above world class’ – for research in marketing, accounting, auditing and accountability.

Professor Robert Faff, Director of Research at UQ Business School, said: “The ERA evaluation confirms UQ Business School’s position as one of the country’s top institutions for research and on a par with leading business schools worldwide. The ratings demonstrate that our high international reputation for business-related research is well deserved.”

Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assesses research quality within Australia's higher education institutions using a combination of indicators and expert review by committees comprising experienced, internationally-recognised experts.
