A Special Event at MBS


Philanthropy has played a critical role in the evolution and growth of Melbourne Business School. On Tuesday, November 24th, the School held its inaugural event “Thanks To You”. It was an evening full of celebration and an opportunity for the School to show it’s gratitude to our generous donors and showcase the impact donations have made in the lives of our scholarship and prize winners.

We welcomed our guest speakers, Sarah Davies – CEO, Philanthropy Australia and Simon Lewis – Head of Philanthropy, Myer Family Company (SEMBA 2015) to the School. They shared their stories regarding philanthropy and the role that it can play. Meanwhile, Abhishek Acharya, a recent Allan Reid Scholarship winner shared with us his personal story and the opportunity that his scholarship provided him to undertake his current MBA.
In addition, we were able to create and share a video highlighting some of our donor and recipient stories. We invite you to view this video and hope you enjoy some of the stories that we have brought together. Our participants helped to showcase how far reaching a MBA can truly be.
