Bowling over the B School

rickyThe Australian B School has launched a world-class education program in Tasmania, to target aspiring business leaders from across Australia and the world, including India.

Ambassador for Tasmania Ricky Ponting will be one of the mentors.

The former Australian cricket captain told the education agents at the launch in Mumbai, during Tasmania’s recent trade mission, that he was passionate about passing on his leadership skills.

“B School’s quality leadership development program will help Australian and Indian executives broaden their experience through first-hand on the ground mentoring from some of Australia’s most noted leaders,” Mr Ponting said.

“My experience is unique and I can provide valuable lessons and insights through the program.”

Ryan Trainor, Managing Director of B School, said Tasmania presented the perfect location to base the leadership program.

“Tasmania’s mix of focussed education and learning, diverse economy, growth opportunities and high quality facilities made the decision easy for us,” Mr Trainor said.

India is the second largest source country for international students at the University of Tasmania, and numbers are on the rise.

The government said the B School had worked closely with Coordinator-General John Perry to establish a footprint in Tasmania, and complement Tasmania’s educational offering while adding another dimension to Tasmania’s dynamic visitor economy.
