For most of us, institutions like the United Nations and the OECD exist in a sphere far removed from our day-to-day lives. In some ways, they seem impenetrable, and surreal, and for students chasing a future with one of these organisations, the path to their doors is far from clear. The Global Voices Scholarship gives students, like Jack Dalrymple, a chance to visit and connect with these organisations, fostering practical, hands-on experience for our future leaders.

Fresh Faces All Around: Meet the New MBSSA Exec

For many students at Melbourne Business School, the Melbourne Business School Student Association (MBSSA) is a hub of activity, with their events a highlight of the year.

At the heart of it all is the MBSSA Executive team, and with a new semester comes a new council. We took a few minutes to meet them and find out about their plans for the rest of the year.

Where sport around the world fails is in its handling of gender inequality. It’s a desire to rectify this and create an equal playing field that has taken an MBS alumna around the world.

Inside the Melbourne Business Practicum: working with the National Heart Foundation

For the past three years, the National Heart Foundation has partnered with the Faculty of Business and Economics to host the Melbourne Business Practicum. It’s been an opportunity for the students and the foundation alike; for students to get hands-on experience managing unique projects, and for the foundation to tap into a rich and energetic resource. We caught up with Sarah McPherson and Lyn Davies from the National Heart Foundation; and Master of Management (Marketing) student Kim Chetty, to find out more about the program.
