AGSM Career Comeback Sponsorships

The AGSM Career Comeback Sponsorships empower parents and carers who are on a career break to build the skills, confidence and network to return to and accelerate a post-break career.

Open to both men and women, but primarily designed to address the leadership gender gap in Australia, a Career Comeback Sponsorship is a fully-funded professional development pathway to help you return to work and achieve your career goals.

Successful applicants will receive:

  • A fully-funded AGSM Certificate in Executive Management and Development pathway, valued at up to $21,000, comprised of three to four AGSM Short Courses, completed over a two year period.
  • Child care reimbursements of up to $60 per course day on receipted costs
  • Travel reimbursements of up to $350 per course or module requiring a visit to Sydney (for participants from QLD, VIC, TAS, ACT, SA, NT and Regional NSW) or $550 (for participants from WA.)
  • Access to The Career Comeback Network, an invitation-only online community offering exclusive content, development opportunities, networking events, career consultation and advice.

AGSM are also calling for organisations who would like to partner on either internal or external-facing initiatives to build the leaders of tomorrow and enhance their corporate social responsibility agenda.
