“Australia’s most innovative new MBA”  –Australian Financial Review

Work with the leading Businesses, Startups, Governments and not-for-profits

Ducere has partnered with major Australian organisations, some of which include KPMG, Telstra, NAB, Save the Children and the Federal Treasury, to ensure industry-relevant skills and practical learning outcomes for students.

The MBA program is structured around three major projects with these industry partners. Over the course of your study, you will work on real projects with real commercial impact, while gaining exposure to the most successful and consequential organisations in the country.

Practical and Industry-Relevant Projects

Through the project-based curriculum, you’ll apply everything you learn to real-world situations and legitimate business challenges. By immersing yourself in these challenges, and working with student teams and industry partners to secure real outcomes, you’ll develop the skills to adapt, innovate and deliver.

Dynamic insights from Global Leaders, CEO’S and Business Innovators

Ducere’s Global Leaders Faculty is made up of over 250 of the world’s most successful individuals, from former Presidents and Prime Ministers to CEOs, Business Innovators and Successful Startup Creators. Their insights have been woven throughout our online course content and curriculum so that students can relate their academic studies to practical and industry-relevant case studies at every stage of their education journey.

Integrated Online Support

Our academic staff members have proven consulting experience alongside their postgraduate qualifications so you can rest assured you are learning from someone who has worked directly with industry. For assistance outside of academic content, our student support team is on hand to lend continuous encouragement and advice, ensuring a first-class higher education experience.

Complete your MBA at your own Pace

We work with students to structure the three MBA projects around their schedules – this approach gives you more choice as to how and when you learn. Through Ducere’s flexible learning and assessment model, 85% of the MBA students have completed their degree in the first year of study!

An internationally recognised degree with financial support available 

All MBA graduates receive a University of Canberra MBA – an internationally recognised qualification at the end of their studies. In addition, students may be eligible for financial support through the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).
