A new Federation University scholarship will support the Gippsland business community in its recovery from the impact of bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic.
A new subsidised, Gippsland-based Master of Business Administration (MBA) will commence in September 2020 and offer a dynamic blend of theory and practice.
In order to support the re-skilling and up-skilling of the local workforce in these challenging times, Federation University has partnered with the Gippsland Regional Partnership and Victorian Government, to subsidise MBA course fees to significantly reduce the cost to students by 80 per cent.
The MBA will give small business-owners, entrepreneurs and leaders the tools to tackle real-world challenges within their own organisations
The course is co-designed with entrepreneurial hub Runway which will lead Gippsland classes on innovation, network-building and start-up-thinking.
The 18-month program will include guest speakers from industry, culminating in an experiential learning project where students tackle a real-time problem facing their business or organisation.
The program will initially be delivered online and potentially move to a blended learning experience as social distancing restrictions are eased.
A limited number of places are available to residents and businesses within Gippsland who meet the entry requirements. Applications will close on Monday, 24 August.
