What makes Leading MBA special is its focus on real life learning that is both practical and academic.

You will be introduced to a number of tools and models that can be applied within your own business straight away. By practising techniques for reflection, both individually and as a cohort, delegates are encouraged to reflect on their business and their role in it by asking deliberate questions of their self, their colleagues and MBA peers to take lessons back to their own companies.

Facilitated support by experts

Delegates will hear masterclasses from international business and leadership experts, and then have opportunities to question, explore and discuss their specialist areas of insight from your own perspective.

Throughout the three years of the programme, you will work with an experienced, qualified coach on a one-to-one basis, identifying new ways of tackling issues and learning from experience.

  • The programme gave me clarity and focus in a safe environment with peers from all sectors with similar challenges. It helped me develop the best learning foundations for starting here in Australia. With all that experience and learning I hope to be the best here at what I do, with further activity in Australia, India and New Zealand planned.
