Leadership central to new MBA program
The University of Sydney Business School has launched an industry-oriented MBA program as part of an exclusive partnership with executive recruitment and talent management firm Korn/Ferry International.
The new program, which draws heavily on the Business School's highly successful Global Executive MBA, will consist of 12 subjects including core classes in leadership development and practice, critical analysis and thought leadership as well as strategy, accounting and finance, data analytics, marketing, HR and organisational behaviour.
Up to nine elective units will be available, including an intensive two week module giving students hands on experience studying and working in an emerging economy in the region.
The program will end with a unique 'Capstone' project focused on meeting a specific industry challenge.
"The Business School's exclusive relationship with Korn/Ferry International will give our MBA students access to the same cutting edge assessment tools used to assess and select the senior executives of the world's leading companies,” said the Business School's MBA Director, Associate Professor Nick Wailes.
The new MBA program, a core element of a strategy to become a global top 50 business school within five years, will be offered internationally in 2015. Applicants must have at least three years experience in business.
