Outline
The Robyn Denholm Women in Technology Scholarship was established to encourage women to undertake the AGSM MBAx specialising in Technology. The MBAx is the first online specialised MBA offered by a leading Australian University and will be a new flagship product of UNSW Business School. The new suite of programs is a flexible online program which it is hoped will appeal to women trying to manage busy career and family lives. In introducing an online specialised MBA, AGSM is responding to a growing market need for a high quality, online program from a premier business school, which allows students to deepen their knowledge of a particular area. Launched in 2015, the MBAx is the next generation online MBA - a management degree that allows students to choose from 3 specializations: social impact, change and technology. The Scholarship will allow one student to undertake the MBAx program within a period of 4 years. A maximum of 3 courses may be taken each year.
