We know that starting an E/MBA can be a daunting experience. Let us help you navigate it.
I initially jumped into my MBA to develop some of what I called "hard skills" (finance, business law, economics, etc). I got that, but what surprised me (and what I value more now) was the "soft skills" I learned (leadership, personal development, negotiation, conflict management, etc). I also highly value the cohort of excellent people I was able to share the experience with and still connect with today (years later).
The QUT EMBA marathon has been both the most challenging yet rewarding thing I've ever done in my life. Over the two years I've undertaken 24 subjects that have truly transformed me as a leader - mind, body and soul. Apart from the high calibre of the EMBA's 'real world' lecturers and QUT's customer-focused support staff, the greatest value for me has been the cohort experience and collaborating with so many great people from different sectors and professions. All now friends for life!
Associate Professor and MBA Director Glen Murphy provides insight into what makes a QUT EMBA #1 in Australia.
In 2015, she was named Boss Young Executive of the Year, and CEO Magazine runner-up CIO of the Year. Then, in 2016, she was named in BI Australia’s Tech 100, a comprehensive list of the coolest people in Australian tech. We asked her to share her insights.
Over the two years of studying a QUT EMBA I couldn’t tell you the amount of times someone asked me, “So what does the E stand for?” Even after the final assignment had been submitted, graded and forgotten, I still get asked the question, “What’s with the E?”
“And”…what a difference that word can make.

Take a university course that usually runs for a year and cram it into one, intensive, sleep-deprived week. Throw in starting a business during that same week for good measure. Does this sound like your idea of a good time?
