Region. MBAs popular with females

Associate Professor Robyn McGuiggan, dean, of the College of Business, at the University of Western Sydney. Said the growth in female participants in MBA courses could be due to the economic environment. “The growth in postgraduate [study] generally is quite strong, with people shoring up their competitiveness in the marketplace, and maybe females feel a little more vulnerable in the economic climate,” she said in The Australian Financial Review. She also said the school had developed a flexible program, delivered over four teaching quarters, which made it easier for women to study.
