AGSM Women in Leadership Scholarship
2019 Recipient
With 17 years in television including almost ten years in broadcast journalism at The Today show and The Project, I developed my leadership skills as a Producer, Chief of Staff and Entertainment content manager. I’ve decided to study an MBA to broaden my future career opportunities and expand my skillset beyond TV production. For AGSM to invest in me and support my education has been an incredible confidence boost and an honour. Without this scholarship, I wouldn’t have been able to take the time off work to study full-time.

​In the past 7 years, I have worked across China, the UK, Indonesia and Australia. Now I have decided to settle down in Sydney to further my education and career development. I chose AGSM because of its supportive diverse community and culture and focus on innovation and immersive learning that sets up the entire community to succeed. I appreciate the opportunity this scholarship has given me, to not only recognise my current achievements but to make more of a contribution to my cohort and AGSM.

AGSM Emerging Female Leaders Scholarship
2019 Recipient
​I am passionate about increasing equality and knew the AGSM MBA would give me the foundations and tools to tackle complex problems. I plan to use these new skills to establish my own social enterprise addressing inequalities in health, well-being and long-term unemployment. Receiving this scholarship meant a huge amount to me - working in the NFP sector meant accessing an MBA would have been a challenge. The scholarship demonstrated AGSM’s commitment to social impact and to supporting women's innovation and leadership.

​I was immediately drawn to AGSM for its reputation as an institution of excellence, the calibre of professors, and prestigious alumni network. But more importantly, I was inspired by the conversation with the current and former students about their experiences and how equipped they felt to embrace the business world. Receiving this scholarship accelerated the opportunity for me to step away from my role for the duration of the 16-month program to focus almost exclusively on my studies.

​AGSM is the leading MBA program in Australia and has a distinct vision of business education that forges successful leaders with pioneering perception, integrity and grit. I knew this was the MBA program for me based on AGSM's intimate class size coupled with Sydney's crucial economic ties to the Asian-Pacific region. This scholarship has also made a tremendous difference for me as I am more confident with my identity as an LGBTI community member and I’m inspired to help others.
