The 2016 Deans’ Vote results were officially announced at the 9th Eduniversal World Convention at Curtin Business School, Curtin University, Bentley, Perth, Australia, recently.
OYAGSB was ranked in the "2 Palmes of Excellence league - Good Business School with Strong Regional Influence" with a 31% rate of support from the Deans.
Eduniversal, with its headquarters in Paris, France, is a global ranking and rating agency that specialises in higher education. Eduniversal has utilised its expertise in evaluating institutions and academic programmes in France since 1994, and at the international level since 2007.
The evaluation used in the Eduniversal Business Schools Ranking involves a unique methodology whereby, out of thousands of different business schools, a total of 1,000 business schools are selected and listed in the Eduniversal Official Selection by the Eduniversal International Scientific Committee, which comprises nine independent academic experts who are recognised in their respective geographical zones.
The objective of the methodology is to create a global mapping system that takes into account the international influence and reputation of each selected institution.
