The number one experience our EMBA students have in common is the rapid career progression they enjoy on graduating from the program. Year after year, we have witnessed graduates return to their organisations, seize opportunities, apply the lessons they learnt in class and boost their careers. That is because our curriculum focuses very uniquely on helping students develop the whole gamut of skills and attributes needed to succeed at work – decision-making, problem-solving, innovative thought, effective communication and leadership. 

Our EMBA students participate in a number of advanced multimedia simulations that teach them to make smart, winning decisions. These simulation exercises, undertaken in our state-of-the-art Simulation Centres, are unique in that they bring students face-to-face with real-time business challenges and allow them to practice and sharpen their real-world and decision-making skills in the most innovative way, and in a risk-free environment.
Our EMBA curriculum includes a unique Problems at Work methodology (PAW), the objective of which is to allow students to bring actual work-related issues to class, discuss with peers and develop innovative solutions. Done under the guidance of experienced faculty and mentors, PAW has proven to help students add immense (and immediate) value at work resulting in recognition, rewards and career progression.
Our EMBA program, tailored for busy working professionals like you, makes use of a flexible study format that minimises your time away from work and family, and at the same time, helps you develop the skills needed to speed up your momentum at work.
Many of our current EMBA students have partners and children at home, and they’ll tell you of how our program has enabled them to take up greater responsibilities at work, make winning decisions and experience unmatched career growth, all while successfully managing their time and family.
Whilst the EMBA degree may be completed entirely at our Sydney campus, you may also participate in overseas study opportunities at our state-of-the-art campuses in Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore and Sydney. You may spend as little as a week in any one of our overseas hubs and receive credit towards your EMBA subjects. Embarking on overseas study will equip you with even more attributes that employers seek.
Our EMBA classroom is a melting pot of cultures, backgrounds, work experience and areas of professional expertise. The program provides you with a platform to connect with people from different industries and build contacts that can be leveraged personally and professionally, besides proving to be a learning resource to one another.

A unique feature of the EMBA program is the Applied Business Research Project undertaken by students within the context of their own organisations. The project is divided into two stages:

Stage 1: Design of a research proposal

In this stage, students are required to conduct extensive secondary research. They are actively involved in literature review as well as collecting data from journals, white papers, news articles and websites. Students are required to build a business case, define a business problem/opportunity and arrive at clear research objectives to meet the business challenge.

Research proposals are evaluated and approved by a panel comprising faculty and industry mentors, before progressing to stage two.

Stage 2: Undertaking research & making corporate recommendations

Students commence this stage by refining their research proposal and undertaking primary research. Each student carries out in-depth analysis using various research tools and techniques to arrive at strategic recommendations with managerial implications.

On completing their research, students present their findings to their organisations, resulting in greater recognition and success.
