The Dūcere and University of Canberra partnership.

Dūcere Business School is focused on business education from diploma through to MBA  and we continually strive to be innovative and aim to bridge the gap between academia and industry. Dūcere Business School has selectively targeted and meticulously interviewed some of the world’s most successful individuals on a range of subjects specific to the courses we offer. Our Global Leaders Faculty is comprised of presidents, prime ministers, Nobel Prize winners, government ministers, entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, and the CEOs of some of the world’s largest companies. Our vision is to offer a different approach through these courses to bring extraordinary value in your experiences as a student.

It is our belief that many traditional approaches to the MBA offerings do provide a lot of value to students, but they are overly focused on principally theoretical or academic elements. Through our partnership with University of Canberra, we really deconstructed that experience and we went back to the drawing board asking what an MBA should offer, what student outcomes we should be trying to achieve and what the student experience should really be.

So while the academic experience and academic rigour that underpins it remain absolutely crucial, what we wanted to do was provide a more industry-integrated experience. This allows students to really focus on real-life projects. Importantly, we wanted to develop a curriculum that would be the most relevant in industry today and give students the opportunity to learn academic concepts in the context of real and current experiences.

Dūcere is a business education content provider. We never accredit any of the courses ourselves. We always partner with an established public institution in order to provide accreditation. In the case of our Australian Bachelors of Applied Business and MBA we have chosen University of Canberra and graduates come away with a degree awarded by the University of Canberra.

The University of Canberra is a fantastic partner for us as they are very entrepreneurially-minded and they are very student-focused. So they were happy to write a new play book with us and really look at what we should provide to students and how to design a course which;

  • best provided a relevant and engaging student experience,
  • drove the outcomes the students wanted from and MBA and,
  • produced the kind of MBA graduates that industry is crying out for.

Our partnership with the University means that we can deliver the industry focus, and unique business-world resources that Dūcere has access to, plus the academic rigour which is provided by a university featuring in the top 5% of universities worldwide.
