MGSM MBA Launches In Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs

Macquarie University’s  Graduate School of Management (MGSM MBA) is set to launch its management program in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Professor Alex Frino, Dean of MGSM MBA, said, “Sydney’s East is a hub of young and highly-educated professionals. Nearly 50% of the population is between the ages of 25 to 44 and 42% of the population has a bachelor’s degree or higher – this is 15% higher that the state average.

“We also know that these young, ambitious professionals enjoy living in the East. In their bid to avoid crossing the bridge, 68% choose to work in the City of their local suburbs. And, why wouldn’t they? It’s a fabulous and vibrant part of Sydney. We are giving them the chance to remain in their community and have access to the best MBA Australia has to offer.”

“MGSM looks forward to directly meeting this community’s leadership development needs and providing some quality competition to other management schools already servicing the area.”

Classes will begin in January 2016 on Monday nights, hosted by MGSM’s East MBA partner, the InterContinental, Sydney, Double Bay. MGSM will initially offer four core MBA units at the Double Bay location – one unit per term – with the first taught by Professor Frino himself.
