New MBA Course Roadshow To Link Top Schools With Future Students

A new three-city roadshow featuring some of the country’s most successful MBA graduates and a host of the country’s top business schools will kick-off in Brisbane on September 7 and wrapping up in Sydney on October 5.

The MBAlive! roadshow is free to attend and has been designed to provide prospective MBA students with insight into how an MBA can drive their career, earnings and skills while giving them the opportunity to meet representatives from some of the country’s top business schools to discuss their options.

Each event on the roadshow will include a full day MBA fair (9.00am – 5.00pm) featuring some of the country’s top business schools as well as a three-hour block of speeches, panels and insights.

Built around the theme of MAKE. IT. HAPPEN each event will be headlined by a high-profile and successful MBA graduate including former Wallaby Tim Horan (Brisbane) and Daisee AI founder Richard Kimber (Sydney).

MBA News Founder Ben Ready said the event was created to provide future MBAs with an opportunity to understand the true value and benefits of an MBA while investigating the range of options available to them.

“Doing an MBA can be one of the most professionally and personally rewarding experiences of your life,” Mr Ready said. “All the research shows an MBA is the gateway to not only rapid career advancement and a higher salary but also a network of new friends and unforgettable experiences.”

“We want MBAlive! to give people who are thinking about an MBA the confidence to take the next step and start their MBA journey. I’ve never heard anyone say they regretted doing an MBA despite the challenges.”

A highlight of each event will be an all-female Power Panel of current and recently graduated MBA students that will discuss the day-to-day life of an MBA and what is required to maximise the value of the experience.
