Australian Financial Review: Linda Brown on the MBA at Chifley Business School at Torrens University.
Last month, our Laureate Australia CEO Linda Brown, was featured in an article by the country’s largest dedicated business newsroom, the Australian Financial Review. Now armed with Chifley Business School, Linda discussed the ambitions of Think Education’s partner institute Torrens University, and how it intends to be front-of-mind for anyone considering studying for an MBA.
She told correspondent Tim Dodd that “an MBA needs applied learning” and that Chifley was a college “created by industry, for industry”. It really is an ideal pairing when it comes to the Laureate philosophy: one of our promises is to ensure our students leave with connections and industry experience by the time they graduate.
Prior to the takeover, Chifley students were restricted to online study interspersed with sessions at hotels. The partnership with Torrens now means that Chifley students have a home both online and on campus whether they are looking to study, network or touch base with their lecturer.
The article was published on the Australian Financial Review website on 20 September 2015.
