Leading MBA is a world-leading online programme that captures the power of learning in the workplace.
Unlike other MBAs, this programme is designed specifically for owners, directors and senior managers of both family and non-family firms who are developing their businesses. Leadership is the most significant factor for achieving long-term success through innovation, growth and succession and that is why your leadership development is at the heart of this online practical MBA.
Our team of international business leaders and academics have spent many years understanding the strategies and experiences of leaders who own and run successful growing companies.
All the learning is practical, meaning it is based on you and your business, adding value to your world of work.
No previous qualifications are necessary and there are no exams to sit.
We believe that individuals become more effective leaders when they apply knowledge in the context of their own organisation and their daily experiences.Register your interest

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 think deeply about 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.
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 two 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.
Increasingly, busy business leaders study online, which is why we’ve created an easy to use online platform and app that is accessible on all devices. You can access the programme, your learning and the discussion Forum whenever you like, wherever you like.
You don’t need to leave your family, friends or business to travel to a university for Leading MBA, saving you valuable time and money.
Joining the programme brings you together with a cohort of like-minded international leaders with whom you’ll share experience and insight. On your smartphone, your tablet or desktop, you’ll be learning online but not alone.
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.
