Blending industry-relevant research with practical applications and challenges, the learning outcomes are centred on introducing the student to aspects of the three pillars of leadership, global business and entrepreneurship, developing graduates who can think critically and strategically in this context. The program is designed to introduce graduates to some of the core underlying technical skills that inform effective decision making, including the development of the interpersonal, cross-cultural and communication skills that are required to lead in the implementation of these decisions. Alternatively, it can act as a pathway into the MBA program for those students with the requisite work experience but not the academic background. Show less
