Our flagship course, the Master of Business Administration (MBA), has been enhanced with you, the student in mind. With feedback from industry, agents and students, the MBA now offers even more flexibility, innovative content, and practical learning outcomes than ever before.
The MBA will provide students with valuable practical management skills that will allow them to develop their capability to lead and inspire others in a global business environment. Students may opt to do a ‘general’ MBA, or select from one of the following specialisations.
Is it your dream to launch a successful startup company? Are you looking for a pathway that offers freedom and autonomy? If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these, then the Entrepreneurship MBA is the right choice for you.
Are you passionate about leadership values and organisational culture? The International Leadership MBA is designed for visionaries, big thinkers, and for those who wish to lead across borders.
Health Services Management
As one of the fastest growing industries in Australia, the Health Services Management MBA is a secure pathway, and is ideal for those wishing to further their career in management and leadership positions within the health sector.
With Big Data larger than ever, businesses seek graduates who can quickly analyse and interpret huge amounts of information. An analytical mind then leverages this knowledge in order to hit targets. The Digital Management MBA equips you with the skills to do just that.
