The National Business Institute of Australia has a strong commitment to reversing the Australian trend of low levels of graduation with formal qualifications at the post-secondary level.  Our Institute is also concerned about the findings of the Karpin Report into Management and Leadership and we strongly endorse the Australian federal governments thrust toward placing a high value on applied learning and recognition of on-site workplace learning experiences.  NBIA supports flexible interpretation of learning for assessment purposes and has developed specialist programs in Management, Mentoring, Team Building and Recreation Management.
