AGSL continues to offer leadership development and strategic advisory services to organisations and individuals.
We specialise in designing and delivering flexible senior leadership development programs for participants under significant time pressures. With “learning by doing” at the core of AGSL’s pedagogical method, courses are aimed at stimulating innovative thinking and capabilities.
Originating in 1970, the International Marketing Institute of Australia Ltd (IMIA) was established by five major Australian corporations: Coca Cola Amatil, Australian Paper Manufacturers (APM), CSR, Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and the Bank of New South Wales (now Westpac). These corporations remained heavily involved until 1990 when IMIA became an independent postgraduate centre for strategic business studies.
The faculty at IMIA was initially comprised of academics from the Harvard Business School and other major US and European business schools. The first Faculty Director was a former Dean of Admissions at the Harvard Business School. In the late 1980s, a strong Australian component was introduced into the faculty and in 1991 the Sydney CBD Campus was established.
In 2010, IMIA became the Australian Graduate School of Leadership. With its subsidiary, the IMIA Centre for Strategic Business Studies, AGSL continues to offer leadership development and strategic advisory services to organisations and individuals.
Today, in addition to short courses, business briefings, innovation facilitation and advisory services, the Australian Graduate School of Leadership offers accredited postgraduate degree courses on behalf of and in conjunction with Torrens University Australia.
Course materials are provided online, allowing participants to study any time and anywhere. This enables today’s executives, with unpredictable travel commitments and fluctuating workloads, to integrate their study commitments successfully into their lives.
