GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF THE AIB MBA?

DOWNLOAD MBA BROCHURE

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.

    The Agile MBA is now the AIB MBA

    AIB is taking our MBA degree back to its roots in our 35th year of delivering real-world, immediately applicable and highly supported learning experiences.

    Our flagship programme – the Master of Business Administration (MBA) – was once known as The Agile MBA and is now the AIB MBA.
