If you’re looking for a world-class education to take your career to new heights, then you should be looking at postgraduate study in Australia.
Whether you’re an international student looking to expand your skills and experience or an Australian national seeking that next step toward a promising career, an Australian MBA qualification is the perfect choice.
Australian MBA graduates are highly sought after by employers worldwide because of the country’s world-class standards in postgraduate education.
An MBA from Melbourne Business School offers unparalleled career acceleration
Melbourne Business School is the business and economics graduate school of the number one university in Australia, the University of Melbourne, as ranked by The Times Higher Education Rankings 2020. It’s the home of Australia’s first MBA program, which has been shaping world-class leaders for more than 50 years.
This MBA program is AACSB and EFMD (EQUIS) accredited and builds upon an integrated, skills-focused curriculum that emphasises practical business application.
It provides the opportunity to gain practical skills from entrepreneurs, business leaders and faculty who work with industry partners on various business projects, as well as the opportunity for hands-on business experience with a real-world organisation.
The MBA program offers industry-focused, application-based learning through innovative and practical subjects, such as the Innovation Bootcamp, where you would learn how to create a new business with the help of various entrepreneurs.
The program is also flexible and customisable, allowing you to study over two years, in which you can gain more experience by taking advantage of exchange and internship opportunities, or study the fast-track pathway to get back to your career sooner.
The brightest of minds
Melbourne Business School boasts some of the brightest academics from around the world, so it’s no surprise that its MBA program attracts some of the best professional minds from around the world too, such as Jason Chuei, a Veterinarian to Industry Marketing Lead at Facebook, APAC.
Jason is an alumnus of both Melbourne Business School’s full-time MBA and Master of Marketing programs and currently works for Facebook in Singapore.
As a veterinarian, Jason spent six years in clinical practice in the UK before relocating to Melbourne to enrol in Melbourne Business School’s MBA program, which has since set him on a trajectory for career acceleration.
Upon completing his MBA, Jason ventured into strategy consulting, then into marketing and strategy roles at Mars, Colgate-Palmolive and Expedia before embarking on a career with Facebook. He cites Melbourne Business School’s MBA program as the key to his accelerating career and says that the school’s network opened doors that cascaded into new career opportunities both in Australia and overseas.
“If you have the means and the motivation to utilise your time to upskill during this time, this MBA is worth considering helping accelerate your career once the economy recovers,” he said.
