Flourish into Australia’s Fastest Growing Industries with an Online MBA
As Australia’s post-pandemic economy begins to recover, some emerging niche industries are projected to boom.
These industries can give professionals rich employment and career growth opportunities by harnessing quality education and training through an online MBA.
Niche industries like luxury brand management and digital health transformation are expected to experience rapid growth in the coming years.
Thoughtful upskilling helps candidates stay ahead of the employment curve. A comprehensive qualification, such as an online MBA program designed by Ducere Global Business School and accredited by Torrens University, will help equip professionals to thrive in these fast-growing niche industries.

Luxury Brand Management
Australia’s luxury market is on a strong upward trajectory, expecting to reach $3 billion in revenue by 2024. This is broken down to be an approximate market sales growth of 6-8% per year through to 2024.
Within Australia’s broader luxury brand market, some smaller niche industries will experience an employment boom.
Post COVID-19 Australia is set to experience a sharp rise in its travel and tourism industry. The pent-up travel demand is projected to cause 2023’s international arrival numbers to be 7% higher than those recorded in 2019. Australia’s hotel industry is going to experience a massive surge in demand.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia’s hotel industry was already experiencing impressive growth of 6% per year between 2016 and 2019, with room rates and occupancy numbers are projected to bounce back stronger than ever.
According to global leading real estate agency Knight Frank, demand for prime real estate is growing quickly across Australia. How? Luxury real estate listings are on the market for a shorter average time, and 2021’s first quarter’s sales were already hitting record numbers.
This demand is accredited to a consistent stock market and the increasing number of ultra-rich Australians — a demographic set to experience a 3.8% annual growth over the next five years. Approximately 81% of affluent Australians are looking for long-term luxury investments such as real estate.
Digitalisation growth has allowed luxury brands to build a stronger foothold in the Australian market. This is coupled with the ability to offer the full sensory experience of buying luxury products due to Australia’s thriving brick and mortar presence in other major economies.

Digital Health Transformation Management
As Australia’s healthcare system continues to deal with the consequences of COVID-19, they have started to pivot towards a more digitised infrastructure. This new infrastructure has opened up rich upskilling and employment opportunities within the digital health transformation for both current and soon-to-be professionals.
This shift in technology is spearheaded by the Australian Government’s new Digital Health Strategy that will launch in 2022. This Framework for Action, will aim to ensure medicine and health services are distributed more seamlessly, fairly and efficiently.
Better patient healthcare and health outcomes are possible when you have a health infrastructure that can be safely accessed, easily used and responsibly shared.
As the healthcare system continues to make technological strides, healthcare management roles will highly favour those professionals willing to upskill and understand these new technologies proactively.
Telehealth services experienced a considerable surge in demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the projected growth of the telemedicine industry to double by 2025, despite COVID restrictions easing.
The projected billions of dollars in savings that telehealth can provide for Australia can provide better health access and services to more remote communities.
With this growth comes a high demand for people who can manage and understand the increasingly sophisticated technology in these healthcare spaces.
Currently, 10% of Australians regularly use telemedicine services, and key stakeholders are being told to take advantage of this shift now to ensure forward momentum.
Personalised medicine studies an individual’s genomes to find individualised cures or treatments for low-survival rate illnesses such as cancer.
High-end and up-to-date technology are critical to successfully implementing this industry’s findings to broader healthcare and medicine within Australia.
Placing Australia as a leader in genomic research, the Australian government allocated a grant of $65 million to personalised medicine research in 2019, calling for more skilled professionals to manage these funds and subsequent technology.
