Studying an MBAe is a fantastic way to gain extensive knowledge on international business and leading corporate business cases. For executives, it’s essentially an opportunity to discover what’s happening outside of your own company and industry and to link it back to your own leadership journey. Networking and exchanging experiences with students who are at similar stages of their careers is a unique and enriching opportunity to grow personally and professionally.
ACU provides students a modern infrastructure and tools, perfectly sized classes, which, along with experienced professors, deliver a professional postgraduate course. Professors at ACU don’t just proceed with the traditional academic avenue that most universities do, but they encourage you to go above and beyond to learn and grow in the particular fields of study.
The reputation of ACU is very sound. It was in the top ten in Australian MBA charts when I enrolled. While most universities offer similar MBA programs, ACU provides an innovative approach which includes important values such as ethical leadership and corporate social responsibilities. The size of classes, and the professionalism within the program convinced me that ACU does things well. It didn’t feel like students were just another number.
ACU’s MBAe, is not just how to make tomorrow’s leaders grow individually but it’s more importantly how do we simultaneously create shared value within a changing connected world. ACU teaches you to think ahead with sustainable decision making. It’s enabled me to see the world differently. As if with new eyes, my perspectives on local and global events have become more rich. I view and understand the world that surrounds us differently. Currently, I am the B2B Regional Business Partner Zone Europe at Nestlé Nespresso SA.
If you’re serious about learning and growing yourself as a leader, then ACU is a wonderful program. A 2-3 year part time degree requires serious personal and professional commitment. To get the most out of an MBA, you really have to be committed to investing your time and efforts!
