The University of Sydney Business School is committed to addressing the under-representation of women in senior leadership roles.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) gender indicator figures released in August 2015 reveal that men continue to hold the majority of Australia’s top leadership positions. This includes senior positions within corporate Australia, the judiciary, federal and state parliamentarians, and managers in the Australian Public Service.

To help address this under-representation and to accelerate progress toward gender equality, we are offering one scholarship annually to a woman undertaking the Global Executive MBA.

Through the Global Executive MBA program, The University of Sydney Business School fosters the advancement of women’s education by developing the skill sets needed to take up senior leadership roles in competitive business environments.
