Join the Revolution in Business Education

The inability of the current model of business education to produce "future-ready" graduates has prompted the ANU Research School of Management to propose a revolutionary new approach to business education.

Working with the International Center for Evidence-Based Management in the Netherlands, the ANU Research School of Management launched the world's first suite of evidence-based graduate business programs in 2017.

As a result of this new approach to business education, the School has re-designed its programs to equip students with the skills to identify, evaluate and apply the best available evidence to inform more effective decision making."

The business environment is changing, and therefore the way we educate our future business leaders needs to respond. The Research School of Management aims to train students to become critical and analytical thinkers who can extract insight from the data and information that surrounds them, and then apply this insight so that they have a positive impact on the world around them."

Our Approach to Evidence-Based Business Education

Step 1. Identify
Students are taught to ask relevant questions and acquire evidence through different search strategies.
Step 2. Evaluate
Students are given tools to appraise evidence quality, and to effectively aggregate this evidence to inform better decision making.
Step 3. Apply
Students are shown how to apply the best available evidence to solve complex problems, and to assess the merit of the resulting outcomes.
