MBA Australasia Award Nominations Close This Week, Ceremony To Be Held October 26

Nominations for the 2023 MBAus Awards that recognise outstanding MBA students will close this week ahead of the awards ceremony in Melbourne next month.

This year’s award will feature a range of new categories celebrating the outstanding achievements, innovation, and leadership from the Master of Business Administration (MBA) community across Australia and New Zealand.

After a successful return to an in-person awards ceremony last year in Brisbane, we are excited to announce the winners at a cocktail party in Melbourne on Thursday, October 26, 2023. Tickets to the event can be booked here.

The guest speaker at the event will be Marie-Claire Ross, an author, facilitator, and leadership development coach who helps leaders build trusting, thriving team cultures that increase engagement, team credibility and retain great talent. She is a recognised thought leader in management, has published two books on trusted leadership, and has worked with leaders from a range of industries around the world.

MBAus President Masud Hossain said the awards were about acknowledging the incredible achievements within the MBA community and inspiring and empowering future MBA leaders.

“It’s a platform where we honor those who have made significant strides in their MBA journey and have, in turn, enriched the entire MBAus community,” he said.

“We invite you to consider nominating yourself or a deserving colleague who embodies the spirit of excellence and innovation that we hold dear. This is your opportunity to shine and share your story with the world, to inspire others with your journey, and to leave a lasting legacy within the MBAus community.

Your participation in the MBAus Awards 2023 is not only a personal achievement but also a way to contribute to the broader recognition of MBA and DBA qualifications. Together, we can elevate the value of our degrees and demonstrate the incredible impact MBAs can have on the world.”
