Go from student to CEO
Swinburne has partnered with the Institute of Managers and Leaders to provide you with the essential skills and qualifications needed to go from student to CEO.
Through the institute, MBA students take part in exclusive industry workshops, business case studies, one-to-one mentoring, and personalised professional development.
You’ll also access Australia’s largest network of management and leadership professionals through membership to the institute for the duration, plus one year, of your studies.
I engineered my MBA with a strategic path. I did some international business, strategic foresight, innovation and consulting units as electives. It gave me the ability to think laterally, to look at a situation and develop my own analytical models, and to use strategic frameworks to communicate a solution to the problem. I wouldn't have been able to work in my current job without my Swinburne MBA.
