The UniSA Business School has joined four of Australia’s leading business schools in a landmark partnership agreement designed to tackle the gender imbalance in MBA study.

The network of top schools has committed to raising almost $20 million (in university and industry funds) to attract 320 new women into MBA programs over the next three years.

UniSA Business School, Curtin University, Monash Business School and Sydney Business School have combined with the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) to deliver its Women in MBA program (WiMBA) – which partners with business to identify top female employees and support them financially and logistically, and by offering support and guidance to complete their MBA studies.

A number of successful women in business have completed their MBA studies with the UniSA Business School, including:

  • Elaine Bensted, Chief Executive of Zoos SA
  • Alexandrea Cannon, Chair of Credit Union SA
  • Judy Curran, CEO of the Can:Do Group
  • Josie Kitch, CEO of scosa
  • Cathy Miller, Board Director at Business SA and CEO of Minda Incorporated
  • Kate Thiele, CEO of Guide Dogs SA/NT
