What is an MBA?

Whether you’re looking to advance your career, develop your skillset, change roles or industries, or pursue a personal passion, an MBA can open doors to a world of opportunity and accelerate your leadership journey. You will develop advanced technical skills, receive exposure to global thought leadership, expand your network, and be well positioned in an increasingly competitive business environment.

We offer both a part-time MBA, delivered over 2-3 years, and a full-time MBA over 18 months. Explore your options to find the best pathway for you.

If you are unsure whether an MBA is the right direction for you, we offer alternative postgraduate options including our Master of Management.

MBA (part-time)

Our part-time MBA caters to the career demands of busy managers and delivered at our convenient CBD campus. This MBA is intentionally small in cohort size and can be completed in two to three years of part-time study. It consists of twelve units of study – an integrated core of seven units, an industry capstone unit and up to four electives chosen by you. You'll discover strengths you never thought you had. You'll detect weaknesses and turn them on their head. Our part-time MBA will delve deep to unlock the 'ambition' within, and refine your leadership skills for the real world.

This degree is designed for professionals with 3-5 years of relevant experience looking to take their career to the next level and break into senior management.

MBA (full-time)

Our full-time MBA is taught over 18 months and has a capped limit on class size. The program is delivered in an intensive format, where students complete two units of study at a time over a seven to eight-week period. Like most MBAs, our program offers a deep understanding of finance, marketing and strategy, but you’ll also learn how to harness big data, leverage the power of creativity, explore the nature of complex systems and lead teams in a digital world. Students also have the option to undertake an internship.

This degree is designed for professionals with a minimum of 3 years relevant experience looking to take their career to the next level, faster.

Executive MBA

Backed by international thought leaders, our Global Executive MBA will enable you to explore disruption and adaptability in a global context through 5 units - 2 week blocks - in Australia, India, the United States and Europe. As you study alongside a cohort of professionals with extensive experience, the focus is on uncovering your own journey and better understanding the leader you want to be as you seek new perspectives on leadership. You will develop your network and solve business problems within a global context, increasingly characterised by disruption.

Our Global Executive MBA has been specifically designed for senior executives with at least 10 years of experience.

Master of Management

In today’s competitive global business environment, our one-year Master of Management can dramatically increase your employment prospects and springboard your career. You will explore the core areas of business activity – from strategy formulation and decision-making to business negotiation and people management. Through practical application and opportunities to work directly with industry, you will graduate with an integrated and future-focussed understanding of all aspects of business activity.

The program, similar in style to an MBA but for a younger market, is designed to equip recent undergraduates or young professionals with 1-2 years experience from any background with the technical knowledge and personal attributes necessary for a career in their chosen field.
