Chifley Business School at Torrens University Australia is an accredited Australian Higher Education Provider and Registered Training Organisation that specialises in developing and delivering relevant and accessible management education for professionals. The school was originally an education program pioneered by the Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers, Australia (APESMA) due to a shortage of relevant postgraduate qualifications aimed at engineers.

For over two decades, Chifley has provided business and management education across Australia and internationally from a comprehensive range of Master of Business Administration and related postgraduate courses, through to diploma and certificate courses, short courses, corporate training and consulting. We deliver flexibly to meet client and career needs with online and flexible disciplines, through to face-to-face learning tailored for specific corporate needs.

Chifley Business School is ranked as one of the Top 20 MBA Providers in Australia, and Top 10 Value for Money by the  Australian Financial Review’s MBA Boss ranking  in 2011 and 2013.

Chifley Business School was created by industry and remains focused on providing education to professionals looking to excel in industry.

Chifley takes its name and aims from Australia's 16th Prime Minister, Joseph Benedict Chifley (1885–1951), a lifelong hard worker who rose from engine driver to the highest office in the land through his own strength of conviction and leadership ability. 

Chifley strives for the values embodied and personified by Ben Chifley, encapsulated in his famous address, 'The Light on the Hill', when he declared:

'We have a great objective – the light on the hill – which we aim to reach by working for the betterment of mankind not only here, but anywhere we may give a helping hand.'

Chifley furthers the business qualifications and capabilities of a global network of students and clients working from West Africa to the Middle East, from Northern Europe to South Asia, and everywhere in between, in every conceivable industry.

Chifley Business School at Torrens University Australia is a part of Laureate International Universities .
