Where have our most valued lessons come from – the classroom or the paddock?  The Boardroom or the researcher?  The truth is, we know education and experience together are an extraordinary force to be reckoned with.  Now is the time for a new agenda.

In an environment constantly challenging the way we work, the way we live and the way we learn, educators around the world are innovating, actively responding by building the capability and capacity to deliver new experiences and content that cater to an increasingly diverse market of engaged and motivated learners.

The 2020 Australia New Zealand MBA Directors Forum will provide delegates with the opportunity to connect and hear from global, Australian and New Zealand delegates presenting and discussing the latest trends and innovations in MBA education.  The 2020 program designed to showcase how MBA educators are leading innovations in learning practices, engaging with industry creating new experiences and driving change in our worlds of work, learning and life.

Join MBA Directors, fellow academics, and leaders from industry for 14th Annual Australia New Zealand MBA Director’s Forum to identify, explore and uncover possibilities, finding new ways forward for academia and business to collaborate, originate, motivate and educate.
