This course is designed to provide the educational foundations required to lead Australian and global businesses innovatively and successfully.

Through this program, students build a comprehensive range of skills; broad and deep knowledge bases that have been enhanced through the interactivity with leaders of well-respected businesses; and the capacity for collaborative critical reflexivity. Graduates of this program are expected to enter senior roles in which they can exercise the skills and capabilities built through the program.

Course aims

The course aims to produce the future leaders of Australian organisations in all sectors of the economy. In addition to the strong knowledge bases built through the program – with particular emphasis on leadership, strategy, change and entrepreneurship – the program connects students to a knowledge-rich community consisting of alumni and industry partners.

I’m now equipped with the skills to see a situation and learn from it – to stop, look, think and understand it differently.
