Announcing new alumni scholarship for Global MBA

September 4, 2019

We are delighted to announce that the Global MBA is now part of the Macquarie University Alumni Scholarship Schemes.

This means that as Macquarie University Alumni, you can receive a 10% scholarship towards the tuition fees for the Global MBA.

Hear from the Global MBA Academic Program Director, Associate Professor Lan Snell in this short video as she discusses the new addition to the Macquarie University Scholarship Schemes.

The Global MBA is a new program offered by Macquarie Business School. It is designed for professionals wanting an innovative, first-class quality online MBA, from a world recognised business school.

The completely re-engineered MBA presents a future-focussed curriculum that develops six key capabilities: strategising, leading, analysing, influencing, adapting and problem solving. The foundations of management such as marketing, accounting, finance, and HR are integrated in a way that reflects the agile needs of organisations facing constant disruptions.

Emphasis on the transferable “soft skills” – such as emotional intelligence, critical thinking and cultural competence – that have been identified by the World Economic Forum as key to the future of work in a global economy have been integrated into the curriculum.

We’ve partnered with Coursera, a global learning platform to take the learning experience to a new level. We want to democratise education and offer a transformative learning opportunity like an MBA to everyone, so we have designed a stackable approach to learning. This means you get to learn what you want, when you want, and how much you want. We like to refer to this as the Edflix model of education.

Using practical, project-based assessments, its stackable format gives you the flexibility to study at your own pace, from anywhere in the world. The immersive learning experience includes opportunities to collaborate and solve real problems with classmates from all over the globe.

The Global MBA already offers immense value and affordability, with full priced tuition fees for the program at AUD$33,000 or $1375 per unit.

The scholarship eligibility will be assessed upon application to the Global MBA. If you are made an offer into the program, the scholarship will be offered as well.Return to your alma mater with the Global MBA to help you realise your next potential.

If you would like to learn more information about the program, please visit our website or if you prefer to speak to a staff member, feel free to email us at globalmba@mq.edu.au or call on 02 9850 4622.

I currently live in Seattle Washington which has shared headquarters with some of the largest tech companies in the world like Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon. After graduating from Macquarie University in 2017 I was inspired to become more involved in my community, so I founded a company that focuses on local and international program evaluation and social policy design. Although I learned many analytical skills through my Master of Policy and Applied Social Research program, I wanted to expand my knowledge of business and leadership- enter MGSM Global MBA.

Coming from a US university for my Bachelor’s degree, I didn’t know what to expect from MQ but I quickly learned that there is a high standard by which university staff and instructors work and a passion for students that I have never experienced at any other university I have attended. The choice of MQ for my Global MBA came naturally, especially since I met with the Vice-Chancellor and saw the vision for student success firsthand. Another reason why I chose to undertake the MGSM Global MBA is because I have a specific dream for myself in the world and I know that this program can assist me in finding a creative way to merge my passions and grow my business.

I don’t want to be a bystander as new innovations change the world around me, I want to be a part of that change and I know that MQ can help me do just that. I am at a point in my career where people see my experience and education and know that my background has some unconventional twists and turns which is necessary to be successful in today’s world. Now is a time for me to be thinking outside the box, taking chances and pursuing my passions, all of which I have done with MQ and will continue to do on this road, not because I know exactly where it leads but because I know the possibilities are endless.

11 years ago, I graduated at Macquarie University from a Master of Commerce with a major in Finance. Fast-forward all these years, I still remember life on campus, the quality of teaching and the life-long friendships I created. My connection with the university remained strong when I moved back home to France. I made sure I was always updated with changes and progress happening within the university, such as the new train station, the new library, innovations in medical research and most recently Macquarie Business School.

I feel that Macquarie University is driven by a unique spirit of innovation in all fields of study. The university has succeeded to build a strong international reputation for both Australian and non-Australian students.

My choice to return to my alma mater to continue my post graduate studies was an easy decision. At this point in my career I felt that I needed to be equipped with skills to be faced with the challenges of the future work force and build my own management style. The fact that the program is dedicated to the future of work was one of the main reasons I chose the Global MBA from other universities around the world.

The Global MBA offer is very distinctive from other MBA’s because it was designed to answer to common constraints for professionals ‘workers or entrepreneurs such as to manage professional and family life, study at your own pace and “pay as you go”.

I’m looking forward to beginning my Global MBA with Macquarie University as I want to advance my skill set in order to become a better leader and prepare myself for the future of work.
