Event overview

This is not an ordinary or traditional Master’s qualification. It’s highly practical and hands-on, it challenges the way you think about business and rewires your approach to problem-solving. The programme engages a broad range of industry experts, indigenous wisdom leaders, futurists, social entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking academics, all working to share their knowledge to help build a bright future. The structure and focus are designed to meet the challenges and opportunities of this dynamic time we’re in.
