Intensifying challenges in Canberra require leaders to pick up their pace.

True leaders don’t walk the corridors of power – they stride.

The nation’s capital is where pivotal decisions are made, and it’s an ever-changing, high-pressure environment many aspire to being part of. It’s inspiring, exciting and can be extremely rewarding.

However, to be considered a serious player, an Executive MBA is now considered essential, and the QUT EMBA is regarded as one of the finest available, equipping senior executives with the skills they need to do more than keep up. It can put them well in front.

“QUT’s EMBA program really taps into the mood of the times,” said QUT Graduate School of Business Executive Director Bob O’Connor.

“It’s enabling people to manage more confidently in business environments which are increasingly complex or ambiguous. We equip leaders to make effective decisions in the interests of multiple stakeholders … which many would agree characterises the Canberra situation.”

Constant reviews, changes in administration and the shifting sands of policy combined with the unpredictable mood of the electorate, demand senior executives do more, with less, in a shorter space of time.

That’s why the most astute are taking on an EMBA to bolster their business skills, strengthen their connections and give themselves a clear advantage in a competitive job market.

Recent graduate Warren Jolly said, “The design and content of the executive masters enticed me to fully immerse myself in all that it had to offer. I was rewarded with an astonishing journey of self-discovery and professional development.”

The core of the QUT EMBA builds skills in leadership and decision-making with participants selecting one of three specialist fields: International Leadership, Complex Program Leadership or Strategic Procurement.

QUT has an enviable record in working with government and industry, having delivered postgraduate programs for senior members of the ADF as well as executives with Australian Aerospace, Boeing, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, The Australian Public Service Commission and more.

The quality of the EMBA program has been independently acknowledged, with the QUT Business School the first in Australia to receive triple international accreditation from assessors AACSB, EQUIS and AMBS. It’s also been rated as one of the best by the Australian Financial Review and QUT is one of only eight Australian universities currently ranked in the world’s top eighty by the UK Financial Times.

Those interested in undertaking a QUT EMBA are invited to attend an introductory information session.
