About this Event

Presentation Topic: "The Curtin MBA 30 Years On - Where Are They Now"

2024 marks 30 years since our first cohort of Curtin MBA students graduated. We have searched far and wide and are delighted to host Curtin MBA Alumni from 30, 25, 20 and 10 years ago who will join us at this first MBA Engage event of the year. They will tell us their career stories, with all four alumni being generous enough to share their journeys pre and post graduation.
We hope you will join us to hear their unique and interesting stories!
