By working together, we believe that we can unlock opportunities for women to propel their career opportunities forward.” Janelle Weissman, Executive Director, Australian National Committee for UN Women

In 2015, our MBA program became the first in the country, and one of the first in the world, to admit more females than males – a considerable achievement considering women average between 30 and 35 percent of MBA participants.
