Monash Business School is committed to supporting executives in advancing their professional careers.  We are delighted to offer the Global Executive MBA Leadership sponsorship, which is awarded to encourage and support Australian professional executives in their pursuit of an Executive MBA.

The sponsorship may be awarded to up to five (5) Global Executive MBA successful applicants per cohort; sponsorships are valued at $5,000 and $10,000.


To be eligible for this sponsorship, candidates must be:

  • An applicant of the Monash Global Executive MBA program

  • Career planning - a projection of the applicant’s professional career aspirations including highlights from an action plan to achieve these
  • Contribution - a demonstration of the applicant’s commitment and ability to contribute to leadership in their organisations and their communities.

Application process

The sponsorship application process is integrated into the three stages of application for admission to the Monash Global Executive MBA program: application, interview, and notification.

When completing the on-line application for admission to the Monash Global Executive MBA, applicants should upload a series of documents including a personal statement.  Applicants who wish to be considered for this sponsorship must also upload an additional statement – the sponsorship application statement - to make their case for consideration for the Global Executive MBA Leadership sponsorship.
