The MGSM Alumni Association is delighted to announce a strategic partnership with The Institute for Sustainable Leadership which will provide alumni with valuable post MBA professional development opportunities - while helping them reconnect with their fellow MGSM alumni to build valuable networks.

Sustainable Leadership creates enduring value for all stakeholders by generating profits while caring for our planet and its inhabitants.

The Institute is led by co-founders and directors Dr Gayle Avery, Honorary Professor at Macquarie University, and MGSM Alumnus Dr Harry Bergsteiner. For decades, Gayle and Harry personally delivered training on sustainable leadership to executives at top business schools and companies in Australia, Europe, China and Thailand, and took over 200 alumni on their highly popular European study tours in Sustainable Leadership.

Enrolments are now open! The MGSMAA and the Institute invite alumni to join a cohort of your peers at the Foundations in Sustainable Leadership course. Commencing 13 October 2021, this six-week post MBA course can be completed online at your own pace. It is supplemented with weekly one-hour zoom forums exclusive to MGSM alumni to interactively discuss aspects of Sustainable Leadership and to promote networking within the alumni cohort on an ongoing basis.

Want more information on the Foundations course? Press here to see an infographic on the course content and a video from Dr Gayle Avery on how the course works.

Within the course content you will find learning modules on Understanding Leadership, Working with Leadership Cultures, Mastering special Skills and Tools, Fostering Sustainable Leadership and Enhancing Performance.

At completion of the course, alumni receive a Certificate in Sustainable Leadership. You will be welcomed into the active community of sustainable leadership certified MGSM alumni - and will be eligible for future overseas study tours and fortnightly discussion forums with other MGSM alumni. You enjoy free membership of the Institute during the 12 months from the date of your enrolment, enabling you to stay current in sustainable leadership.

To enrol press here.

Don’t delay, as the inaugural course commences on Wednesday 13 October!


The Institute for Sustainable Leadership is the second ecosystem business that the MGSM Alumni Association is proud to partner with - following on from the launch a few months ago of Reconnex CEO Groups, exclusively for CEOs. Both businesses offer valuable professional development and networking exclusive to our MGSM alumni.

At the MGSMAA, we’re confident that both businesses provide great opportunities for alumni to progress career opportunities while building and supporting their valuable alumni networks – and we hope you can personally benefit!
