What our students have to say
“Studying by distance was the only way I could conceivably do my MBA, but fitting the degree in around my roster is never too difficult, since I can take my course notes and journal readings with me wherever I go and work from my iPad between work days.”
Stuart Dunn, First Officer B737, Qantas
AIB MBA Student
“The best thing about being in operations is that it didn’t matter whether you were studying HR or Strategic Management that month – there was something in every single topic that you could use.”
Rhonda Olsson, National Manager Offshore Operations, CoreLogic Asia
AIB MBA Graduate 2012
“My MBA took me from being quite an inexperienced manager to working in a highly covetable role with a brand that is synonymous throughout the state. It’s been really valuable to my career.”
Amanda Grocock, General Manager of Rundle Mall Management Authority
AIB MBA Graduate 2008
“With my MBA I now have a better understanding of the theory of leadership. I understand what an effective leader is, both in theory and in the changing leadership dynamics required in the fire service.”
Greg Crossman, Chief Fire Officer, SAMFS
AIB MBA (HRM) Graduate 2012
“I would definitely attribute much of my success to having completed the AIB MBA. I think I achieved my current position through a combination of previous performance, as well as through my MBA qualification, which shows that I also have the theoretical knowledge necessary for my role.”
Janine Copelin, Managing Director – Head of Retail Banking Citi
“I would definitely attribute my successes to the MBA. As soon as I finished my MBA, I was promoted to a higher role with my previous employer and I had to move to Brisbane. After a year, I had to move to Perth for a senior position, and I don’t think that any of that would have been possible without having the MBA.”
Paolo Trevisan, Assistant Director of Finance, Marriott International
“I chose AIB because I liked the possibility of completing an MBA in a year; the cost of the course was far more affordable than other providers I investigated; and I liked the fact that I was able to complete the programme (other than the exam itself) purely by correspondence, so I could fit it into my life as I needed to.”
Justin Nuich, Director and CEO, AMCi Wireless
