AGILE (Academy of Global Impact and Leadership through Ethics) is an innovative opportunity for high achievers to elevate their performance. At ACU, we know you are already a leader, and we are here to take that to the next level.

Enrol, and you will be offered:

  • immediate membership in AGILE, which will provide you with exclusive networking opportunities
  • masterclass seminars with ACU’s nationally recognised teaching staff and global leaders
  • access to talks from Australia’s most inspiring leaders.

You will graduate ACU not only with a degree, but with the experience, knowledge, and aptitude to be any employer’s first choice, ready to contribute and shape the world’s new tomorrow.

AGILE’s mission

As members of AGILE we see that the commitment of global impact precedes the demand for leadership to fulfill what's wanted and needed in the world. AGILE attracts and selects those who are already leaders with the intention to elevate their leadership, power, productivity and therefore impact and will be developed in quick, flexible, and agile leadership.

About the program

AGILE is exclusive to first year students beginning their studies in 2022 who have a predicted ATAR of 90+. AGILE members will have access to a range of personal and career enhancing opportunities including:

Virtual lunch with the Vice-Chancellor and President

This is an opportunity for AGILE members to meet the Vice-Chancellor and President of ACU and hear about his professional journey. AGILE members will have the opportunity to ask questions and get advice about their academic and professional trajectory, as well as meet other local AGILE members to establish support networks. The VCP presentation will be virtual, however you will be invited to attend your local campus (public health orders permitting) to meet members in person, listen to the VCP’s presentation, and then come together for lunch afterwards.

Leaders Across Borders

Leaders Across Borders is a series of three two-hour virtual masterclass workshops with leaders within Australia and beyond our borders who specialise in cross-cultural leadership training and development. Be exposed to leadership concepts across diverse cultures and communities and what this means to your professional development and career success. There will be three masterclasses on offer throughout your first year. We will bring students and staff together on campus when possible to help you build your network of local AGILE members.

GIVE (Global Impact of Value and Excellence) Talks

GIVE Talks are exclusive to AGILE members and ACU staff, and will celebrate excellence in leadership that makes a positive impact on local and global communities. By sharing in the speakers’ journeys you will become empowered to begin shaping and creating change and encouraged to reconsider your predetermined notions of what leadership is. The GIVE Talks will draw on the expertise of ACU, Australian, and global leaders.

Leadership Incubator

The Leadership Incubator is exclusive to AGILE members and it’s an opportunity to take part in two leadership and professional development seminar series in your first year. Members will have priority access to the best ACU staff who will help you kickstart your career
