The ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) is dedicated to ensuring that our students are prepared to successfully navigate the professional landscape and meet the expectations of their future employers. That is why we are working with industry partners to co-run the flagship professional development program at ANU, MomentuM.

Student employability is a core value and key strategic focus at CBE, and we know that employers demand well-rounded graduates who are job-ready and equipped with all of the skills required for the job market.

From July 2017, eligible CBE students will be able to take a step towards their brilliant career with MomentuM.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact us at momentum.cbe@anu.edu.au.

Student applications for the 2017-18 program are now closed.

MomentuM addresses key areas of a student’s development throughout their journey as students through to alumni status. The merit in focusing on career education and talent development designed to enhance a student’s employability in the future shouldn't be understated.
