The Academy Degree
If you are keen to enter your workplace with refined creative and critical thinking skillsets, and cross-disciplinary leadership qualifications, the Bachelor of Creative Leadership (BCL) is for you!
You’ll have the opportunity to develop broad knowledge and skills in leadership and ethics and help you grow your capacity to lead in complexity by focusing on high-level logical, entrepreneurial, and systems thinking.
Hear from prominent real-world leaders and industry legends which provides you the opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom and connect it to real life challenges.
"The skills that the degree taught me have stood strong in my working life. It taught me to think differently, to explore the nuances, appreciate the diversity, embrace the criticality, lavish the complexity, and most of all to reflect on my improvements."
- Chris Mahoney, Graduate – Bachelor of Business (Advanced Business Leadership)
