Education Is Central To Our Lives, Our Society, Our Economy

 At its core, education empowers us to fulfil our ambitions and our aspirations.  Education gives us the knowledge and the skills to change, to advance, to disrupt, to innovate, to create, participate and activate.  Education is a connector and an enabler. Education is also a discriminator and a blocker.

In recent times, the practice of education is being questioned. Relevance, commoditisation, cost, impact and purpose are being debated by business, industry, students, parents, politicians, policy makers, government officials, university boards, Chancellors and the academic community.

Established in 2006, the Australia New Zealand MBA Directors Forum is an important event for MBA Directors to connect, learn, debate and celebrate current and emerging trends, the success and opportunities impacting the people, business and education.

Our vision – to create a vibrant platform for leaders in education and business to engage, promoting relevant, expert and trusted dialogue enabling greater connectivity and understanding of the impacts of education and aspiration – exploring and uncovering best solutions for people as new business models and technology change not only the way we work, but how we live, learn and play.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 15th Annual Australia New Zealand MBA Directors in May 2021.
