26 Australian Institute of Business Graduates are formally conferred their degree in the presence of their family, fellow graduates, faculty, industry guests and members of parliament. A real highlight of AIB graduation ceremonies are the keynote speakers. Comprising high-profile guests, academics and business leaders, they always present inspiring and thoughtful speeches. In recent years, our guest speakers have included Pat Rafter, Australian tennis legend, Peter Alexander, Australian fashion designer and founder of Peter Alexander Sleepwear, Glenn McGrath, former Australian international cricketer and founder of the McGrath Foundation, Janine Allis, entrepreneur and founder of Boost Juice, and many more.

Graduates recognise the importance of an MBA to their career, and that the confidence, knowledge, expertise and experience gained through AIB, is genuinely irreplaceable. WECELEBRATEYOURACHIEVEMENTATOUR PRESTIGIOUSGRADUATIONCEREMONY. GRADUATION
