Melbourne's Innovative Hybrid Approach

Our innovative Hybrid Methodology is an evidence-based approach to designing and delivering executive education that blends the best of online learning tools, access to a curated bank of learning resources, with face-to-face learning facilitated by subject matter experts who are world leaders in their field.  Backed by our unique learning analytics, the Melbourne Hybrid Methodology creates high impact learning at scale and delivers outcomes that can transform leaders and team performance.

How it works

Our Hybrid Methodology has evolved from our deep experience in designing high impact executive education and expertise in digital and practice-based learning methodologies. It starts with understanding your context and the needs of your people.

We work with you to design an optimal blend of self-directed and synchronous online modules and learning tasks with delivery in our state-of-the-art learning facilities on campus that simultaneously enable in-class and distributed participation in learning.

Online and digital

Depending on where your talent is located, we can tailor delivery to ensure maximise access without compromising quality and impact.


We use the power of the classroom to set learners on the right course over their learning journey, forge connections and gain the full power from innovative case studies, problem- and work-based projects, simulations, and access to leading thinkers and practitioners in their field of expertise.

Curated learning resources

Learners will have access to the best and the very latest information and insight from research around the world to support their learning through the program and beyond.

Our global network

Our faculty collaborate with researchers from other leading universities and leaders around the world – a network we can draw on to create a learning experience few places can offer.

Demonstrating Impact through Rigorous Learning Analytics

We work closely with organisations to understand their learning needs and the impact on knowledge, skills and impact in the workplace – on performance, change and growth – and design rigorous learning analytics that demonstrate the impact of your investment in learning and skills.
