Why undertake executive education at ANU?

The Research School of Management within the College of Business and Economics is ranked 18th in the world in the area of "social science and management," 2016 QS World Rankings. 

Drawing on a rich multidisciplinary background, the RSM Executive Education Program focuses on giving participants the tools and skills needed to thrive within modern organisational environments.

A superior, research-led education

The ANU was created to be a flagship university in Australia, and one of the World’s leading universities. High quality, high impact research is at the heart of everything we do, and is the bedrock of the RSM Executive Education Program. Our Masterclasses will draw on the latest academic research to guide participants through case studies, interactive activities, and will provide participants with frameworks and tools to assist them to apply what they learn.

A unique feature of the RSM Executive Education Program is the focus on evidence-based management. The Research School of Management is the first university in the World to embed an evidence-based management across the entire curriculum. This approach ensures that participants not only have the knowledge to solve today’s problems, they are given high level skills and abilities to interogate and interpret evidence and data in order to respond to an uncertain future where many of the problems confronting managers have not even been thought of yet.

World-leading experts

Our academics and programs are focused on a wide range of fundamental and cutting edge subject areas, including (but not limited to): evidence based management; marketing; strategy; international business; operational management; project management; change and leadership. The School is home to a substantial number of research units at the forefront of global debate with an impressive range of business experience and a track record of publishing in the world’s leading management journals.

Improved employability

ANU graduates are the most employable of all Australian university graduates. Ranked 22nd in the world for graduate employability according to the 2016 Global Employability University Survey results, ANU graduates work in a wide range of industries including accounting, legal, auxiliary finance and investment services, central government administration and consulting firms. Students from the College of Business and Economics also report very high levels of satisfaction with the intellectual environment and the quality of the educational experience.

Flexible and personalised

Participants can undertake a single Masterclass, or combine five Masterclasses with a supervised project to obtain an advanced leadership credential. Participants can also undertake non-award courses from our MBA that can count towards a masters qualification down the track if desired. The ANU Executive Education Program can also develop a bespoke solution to address your particular organisation’s needs, including on-site training and virtual coaching.
