Rankings and Awards

Kaplan Business School is not a research institution, so does not appear in the global university rankings tables such as QS and Times Higher Education. However, by not conducting research, Kaplan is able to devote all its resources to what matters most for students, namely the Quality of Teaching, Student Support, Learner Engagement and Graduate Outcomes and Employability.

In these key student-focused areas, Kaplan Business School is highly ranked, and our success has been acknowledged in a number of Australian and global awards.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are a suite of national higher education surveys endorsed by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment. They are the most comprehensive education surveys in Australia, covering the student life cycle from commencement to employment; all 41 universities and a growing number of higher education institutions participate each year. The largest survey in the suite, the Student Experience Survey (SES), received responses from almost 300,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students in 2020.
