MGSM Launches "Women in MBA" Program

Program aims to help the school achieve gender equality in its MBA program

Australia's Macquarie University Graduate School of Management (MGSM) has announced the launch of a new program that will help the school achieve gender equality in its MBA program.

Through the new "Women in MBA" program, the school will partner with corporate and government organizations to identify top women talent, and support these women while doing their MBA.

A big part of the support will be financial: MGSM will match the contribution of the corporate partners, dollar for dollar, up to 50 percent of the cost of the MBA tuition. The corporate partner must contribute at least 10,000 AUD of the program cost to qualify for the matching contribution.

MGSM will also work with the corporate partners to ensure that the students have enough practical support, in terms of time to attend class and do assignments. The program will also support students through guidance and support, to help them develop their post-MBA career pathways.

It's expected that the recipients will undertake the MBA program on a part-time basis and complete it within four years.

To apply for the program, applicants must first secure the support of their employers.
