Prof. Maroš Servátka MQBS

When full-time Macquarie Business School (MQBS) professor and part-time ice hockey fanatic Maroš Servátka started teaching in the MBA program, he completely revamped the way economics is taught.

Maroš doesn’t focus on graphs, models, or macro predictions.

Instead, he focuses on applying concepts that create real opportunities for watchful executives and that can be put to use in profitable and practical ways by real companies.

Later, when approached to take up a Deputy Directorship at MQBS, Maroš saw an opportunity to re-engage MQBS and MGSM MBA alumni in a way that is complementary to the activities undertaken by the university, but that would be of benefit to the school, current MBA students and recent graduates, and of course, alumni.

'There is, and always has been, a craving from MBA students to network with people from the industry, learn from their experiences, and be mentored. What better way to start than with former students of the same MBA program?' said Maroš.


In accepting this new role, Maroš is taking on this ambitious challenge and will look towards incorporating certain alumni activities into the Education and Career Services Team portfolio. 


We applaud Maroš Servátka and look forward to collaborating with him in these initiatives.
