UNSW Business School subjects first in Australia in world rankings

UNSW Sydney Business School has ranked first in Australia for both Finance and Management in the Shanghai Ranking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2018, placing them within the top 50 worldwide.

Within Australia, Business Administration ranked third and Economics fourth, both coming within the top 75 globally; while Hospitality and Tourism Management ranked 7th in Australia and 34th in the world.

UNSW Sydney scored the most subjects ranked first in Australia and the highest number of subjects ranked in the top 100 in the country.

With 38 subjects ranking in the global top 100, 24 in the top 50 and three in the top 10, UNSW continues its climb up the rankings, having the most subjects of all Australian universities in the prestigious league table.

In addition to the Business School's Finance and Management subjects, seven other UNSW subjects – Civil Engineering, Instruments Science & Technology, Library & Information Science, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Remote Sensing and Water Resources – rank first in Australia. This is almost double the number of UNSW subjects ranked first in 2017.

ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects has published the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) by academic subjects since 2009. The rankings assess more than 4000 universities across 54 subjects in natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, medical sciences, and social sciences.

The methodology to determine the ranking includes the number of papers published, international collaboration and citation impact. The full methodology can be found here.


Free trade deal with Indonesia crucial for Australia

The Prime Minister's trip to Indonesia is to secure a free trade agreement with a vastly under-rated economic partner, says UNSW Business School's Tim Harcourt.

“Australia depends on rocks and crops,” says the UNSW Business School’s Tim Harcourt. “And many of Australian grain growers are doing it tough right now. That’s why they, and cattlemen, have high hopes of big reductions in tariffs with Indonesia, ahead of these talks.”

Scott Morrison is hoping to secure a landmark trade deal with Indonesia as he takes his first overseas trip as Prime Minister.

“Morrison has a hard act to follow. Malcolm Turnbull had very good relations with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, and the loss of Julie Bishop who was much respected in the region is another body blow. But Morrison will know that dairy, citrus and sugar producers want a deal. But a deal may be tough. Indonesian wants to be self-sufficient with its food,” says Harcourt, the J.W. Nevile Fellow in Economics at the UNSW Business School.

The PM has flown to Indonesia to meet with his counterpart Joko Widodo eight years after the two nations first began talks on a free trade agreement.

“Wheat exports make up about half of Australia's agricultural trade with Indonesia,” he says, and adds Indonesia is a vital trade partner with Australia, worth $16 billion in two way trade, and also a vital education partner.

“In fact, in the greater scheme of things, Indonesia is a much underrated economic partner. As well as big names like ANZ, Leightons, Commbank, Orica and Bluescope, over 2400 Australian businesses export goods alone to Indonesia and many corporates have receive rates of return four times that of China and India. But there are only 250 Australian companies with a presence in Indonesia, which compares to over 3,000 in other markets like China.”

Harcourt argues that free trade is crucial for Australia, and increased tensions around a trade war would not be good for the world economy. “World leaders now fear a trade war, just when there were good signs of better days ahead in the global economy.”
