Melbourne Business School is proud to have been founded by philanthropy. Showing visionary leadership, a group of business leaders garnered support from major Melbourne corporates and friends to raise more than $17 million to build our campus and advance business education. This funding was matched by the Australian government.

The generosity of our donors continues to enable us to invest in teaching and research, fund scholarships and awards to attract the best talent from Australia and overseas, and deliver innovative programs that are relevant to the needs of business.

Financial support also facilitates internships at leading government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations and engages world-class faculty and business leaders to teach at the School, which competes alongside the world’s top one per cent of elite business schools.
