The FEAL MBS Masters Program is designed to help fund executives enhance their skills and knowledge, inspire new ideas, deliver keen insight and support your on-going professional development.
There are two scholarships available for the First 2018 module “Managerial Decision Making” to be held 29 April – 4 May at Carlton campus of Melbourne Business School. Generously supported by AMP Capital and QIC, the two scholarships are open to all superannuation executives.
This module is based on state-of-the-art neurobiological research that sheds light on the obstacles we face when making decisions. By discovering the roots of many of these difficulties we can also learn solutions to the problems created by our biological history.
- Neurobiology and Neuroanatomy
- Judgemental biases: Framing, Priming and Anchoring
- Expectations and stereotypes – when is the gut feeling right?
Please note applications closed Friday 9 February 2018.
Congratulations to Garnett Hollier – LGIAsuper and Aneesa Samuel – State Super NSW the winners of the FEAL Masters Program Scholarship 2018.

Current and previous students
This course was challenging! Jenny George and Dr Sam Wylie, were excellent in their ability to explain the boarder picture as well as deep dive into the detail. I wanted especially to pass on huge 'thank you' to FEAL and AMP Capital for the scholarship. WOW! What a surprise I was honoured and flattered that I had been selected as the recipient. I think it gave me even more reason to 'give it my all'. The support was truly appreciated. So it is onto Mt Eliza to a subject that I think will be less foreign to me but I am sure no less challenging! I cant wait!
“The FEAL MBS course teaches world’s best practice concepts whilst ensuring this theory is approached at a practical level through group discussions with industry peers. I would highly recommend this course — it has expanded my thinking regarding leadership and management principles.”
“The FEAL MBS program provides fund executives with the opportunity to continue their learning while gaining post graduate qualifications at world class business schools. The ability to apply the leadership and other principles to our work in the superannuation sector is invaluable and the camaraderie forged between participants is an added benefit. I highly recommend the program to current and aspiring leaders.”
