Chifley Business School


Chifley Business School is a boutique business school driven by industry experts with high-level training and professional experience, and ongoing industry engagement, which delivers uniquely positioned Postgraduate programs, alongside a suite of industry-focused courses tailored to the needs of organisations and the industries in which they operate.

With students in over 50 countries across all seven continents, Chifley has over 13,000 graduates and is currently the largest MBA provider in the UAE.

We routinely customise our own high-level MBA material to suit a corporate-course context; operating in a corporate-learning environment with the same capability and assuredness with which we run our precision-engineered MBA program.

Chifley is an independent institution that responds rapidly to the evolving needs of our students and clients by incorporating critically relevant course material, and maintaining a consistently high level of student attention.

Chifley takes its name and aims from Australia's 16th Prime Minister, Joseph Benedict Chifley (1885–1951), a lifelong hard worker who rose from engine driver to the highest office in the land through his own strength of conviction and leadership ability.

Chifley strives for the values embodied and personified by Ben Chifley, encapsulated in his famous address, 'The Light on the Hill', when he declared:

'We have a great objective – the light on the hill – which we aim to reach by working for the betterment of mankind not only here, but anywhere we may give a helping hand.'

Chifley furthers the business qualifications and capabilities of a global network of students and clients working from West Africa to the Middle East, from Northern Europe to South Asia, and everywhere in between, in every conceivable industry.
