We understand that Australia is doing it tough at the moment. These grants are our way of providing some level of support to the many Australians who have seen their jobs, businesses and livelihoods impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic, enabling them to access education to better prepare them for an uncertain economic future.
Australia has already seen over 1 million jobs lost throughout this time. As we look to the future and the long-term impacts on the economy, we understand the importance of those being impacted needing to remain competitive within the job market.
As Australia’s largest online MBA provider, the Australian Institute of Business’ curriculum will remain uninterrupted during this global health crisis thanks to the access anywhere, anytime model of learning. Students will continue to have access to the same quality experience and expertise which can future-proof their careers that has been offered since 2016.
