MURRA 2020 Indigenous Business Master Class Program Application

MURRA means "Fish net" in the Woi Wurrung language of the Wurundjeri people of Melbourne. It represents a gathering of Indigenous professionals who are joined by a common purpose to develop their businesses for the benefit of their communities.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs, executives, traditional owners and managers need to invest in their own professional development in order to secure the long term viability of their businesses and organisations.

The Melbourne Business School (MBS) in partnership with IBA, BP, First Australians Capital, Supply Nation, Global Forwarding and Ian O. Williamson invite you to apply for the 2020 MURRA Master Class Program.

The MURRA Master Classes Series has been designed based on consultation with Indigenous entrepreneurs to meet this need by providing business acumen skills that can be immediately applied to real business and management issues.

If you are an Indigenous entrepreneur, executive, traditional owner or senior manager expected to implement strategy and would like the tools to grown your organisation, this is the program for you. Over 12 days, we provide you with the frameworks to ask the right questions in your business.
