The University of South Australia Business School is proud to support aspirational and high achieving women with the Women in MBA (WiMBA) scholarship.

As a leading Business School, our mission is to develop graduates for global careers and champion business growth in our State. We recognise that to have sustainable economic development, we need greater diversity of women in leadership.

For this reason, we are proud to offer the Women in MBA (WiMBA) scholarship. It is well known that a Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a pathway to leadership and career progression. Our dedicated WiMBA scholarship actively addresses leadership inequality and champions women with leadership potential to advance their careers into senior management and executive roles.

Working together to back women in business

For women, studying the UniSA Business School’s award-winning five-star MBA* through the WiMBA initiative provides the leadership skills and strategic perspective to move into senior management and executive positions.

Equally, organisations that partner with us on this initiative show their commitment to addressing gender diversity in leadership, help grow the female talent pipeline and foster positive economic growth for the nation.
