Develop a strategic understanding of current and future leadership challenges.

The Curtin Business School MBA is one of only three EFMD Accredited MBA programs offered in Australia.

Strong leadership is key to success in any business. This specialisation gives you a nuanced understanding of current and future leadership challenges.

Students are constantly required to analyse and re-frame leadership concepts alongside their own leadership styles in order to gain an understanding of organisations and develop their practical skills. Students will also be required to apply, test, and evaluate their analytical, leadership and management skills in the workplace and further their professional and personal development through action learning that is transferrable to real organisations.

By exploring the philosophy of leadership and covering a range of topics including working with teams, working in a global arena, effective and strategic management and organisational behaviour, graduates will leave the course with a more strategic understanding and engagement with leadership.
