With a 50-year history teaching some of the most brilliant business minds from across the world, we’re always proud to see our alumni go from success to success.
While an MBA is certainly no easy commitment, the knowledge and opportunities it can unlock are invaluable. Our students embody the same values we promote as an institution – they are driven, practical, and internationally-minded. Through the support our academics provide, these qualities are amplified to create individuals who can thrive in a variety of organisations and sectors.
To recognise their dedication to professional growth and lifelong learning, we’re shining a light on the incredible work of just a few of our MBA alumni.
