Course Description

The MBA can transform your professional career and develop your leadership potential.

The MBA has been designed to reflect the increasing emphasis on management skills and abilities arising from today's market developments and explores the complexity and diversity of business in an increasingly interconnected and multi-cultural world.

What's covered in the course?

You will be expected to develop critical analytical skills in assessing the current and developing environment for business; identify new business opportunities and analysing markets; deal with complex issues systematically and creatively; and communicate clearly to a range of audiences.  

You will continue to work full-time in a business while learning and applying theory to practice to enhance your career development prospects. The MBA covers a blend of fundamental and in-depth senior management skills across leadership and management, and is designed for proactive career focused individuals who can progressively apply their learning, demonstrating impact, by producing a portfolio of evidence meeting the knowledge, skills and behaviors required of a senior leader.
