Griffith MBA graduates will complete their university studies with an extra string to their bow following a new link with a globally-renowned business leadership body.

The CEO Institute has announced an Educational Alliance with Griffith University, establishing a pathway for alumni to become part of an exclusive global network of Certified CEOs.

The CEO Institute is the only global certification body for chief executive officers, and through the alliance the Griffith MBA degree will be recognised for the purposes of Certified CEO Certification.

“This is a great opportunity for our alumni to value-add to their professional development through the CEO Institute’s resources for continuous professional development,” MBA Director, Dr Nick Barter, said.

“It is a significant point of difference in a very competitive education environment. It will allow our graduates to gain exclusive access to the broader business world and its knowledge of leading and evolving business practices.”

The CEO Institute was founded in 1992 as a peer-to-peer membership organisation for chief executives to connect and learn from each other.

It aims to inspire business leaders to continuously improve their professional and personal lives by creating environments where they can meet, communicate openly and share insights.
