Welcome (back!)

The AGSM MBA Programs office extends a warm welcome to all the new students joining our programs this session and welcomes back our continuing students. Best wishes to all for a successful year of study.

MBA (Executive) weekly newsletter

The weekly newsletter will be our main form of communication with you. It will contain important reminders and information pertaining to timetable updates, enrolment reminders, assessments and examinations, as well as to ensure you remain up-to-date with current happenings in the AGSM MBA community. The newsletter will be sent to your student zMail account and it is your responsibility to ensure your forwarding email address is kept up-to-date to ensure you do not miss out on receiving important information.

International Exchange Program 2011/2012

Did you know that GDM students are able to go on Exchange with one of our 27 International Exchange Partners? Any GDM student who has completed all of the core courses and no elective courses, and has a WAM of 65% or above, is eligible to apply. The International Exchange Program provides students with an opportunity to undertake one session of study with an AGSM MBA Programs partner institution.

An International Exchange Program information session will be held in March at the Kensington campus, UNSW. At this information session, we will discuss the application process, the outgoing exchange policy, exchange partner information and meet with some of our incoming exchange students from around the world. For further information about exchange please go to the AGSM MBA website.
