Building on the MBA that AIM has delivered for over a decade, this new offering, MBA+, will equip enrolled students with the skills to succeed in a rapidly changing business environment.
Group CEO, Ben Foote, said the new MBA+ includes some big changes and will have a significant impact on the future leaders of Australia and adds value like no other MBA program.
“What we’re seeing now is an increased interest in MBAs, but little has changed to accommodate the significant changes faced by leaders and executives,” he said.
“It’s essential that we provide opportunities and teach leaders the skills they will need to navigate the constantly changing business world.”
AIM’s MBA price has decreased to $32,400 from $42,600 to ensure there is no barrier to professionals investing in themselves and their career.
“These new MBA+ features will play a major role in helping our students gain incredible outcomes from their MBA investment at a very competitive price.
"We are the first to bundle access to short courses giving students the opportunity to further extend their capabilities.”
Professor Elizabeth More, dean of the AIM Business School, said the MBA+ is designed for the working professional.
“Assessments are based on workplace reality rather than traditional rote learning and exams.
“This accords with the real value AIM places on previous management experience.
“Furthermore, we focus on an academically rigorous, yet practical learning approach by employing facilitators who hold high academic qualifications and years of professional expertise, many as practising consultants.”
When a student signs up to the new MBA+, they will receive a Gold Card, unique to the individual, and that will provide them with a raft of benefits:
• Access to on-campus and online AIM Short Courses for up-skilling in critical soft skills such as complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and people management
• Access to workspaces at AIM Lounges in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra, where 20,000 professionals come together to network and collaborate each year
• Access to AIM coaches to help students navigate their skills growth and provide guidance to improve professional profiles
