Case Study


ACU is ranked first in Australia for graduate employment (Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal 2022, medium-term, full-time employment 2020–2022 for domestic undergraduate students). We are proud to directly support this ranking with our products. ACU now boasts 8 different campus locations – 7 across Australia and a new campus in Rome. Regardless of their location, all potential international Masters and MBA students will have access to our course.

challenges faced

ACU faces the dual challenge of attracting and retaining international Master’s students in an increasingly competitive global education landscape. With a diverse pool of students from around the world, ACU recognises the importance of offering innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of its international cohort.



In partnership with Successful Graduate, Postgraduate ACU international students are now offered our 5 Steps to Self-Leadership Mastery course as an incentive to confirm their enrolment with the university. All international Masters and MBA students are advised about the course in their letter of offer. Course access is released upon confirmation of enrolment. The solution can be run internally or by an external third party (such as QS). This encourages students who are at key stages of enrolment with ACU to complete our course via the Successful Graduate site. 


The feedback from the students undertaking the course so far have been outstanding, with 5 stars in all areas.

Don’t just take my word for it! Hear from ACU staff and students directly…
