Course Description

Trimester 3 intake is offered part-time only.
An MBA is an advanced general management degree designed for managers who wish to develop a solid business foundation, as well as skills and knowledge of cutting-edge business practices for the 21st century. At Griffith we offer two MBA programs, both are focused around our values of responsible leadership, sustainable business practices, and a global perspective with the aim of making you an effective globally responsible business leader. The two programs we offer differ in their delivery style, one is fully flexible and can be studied online or face to face in a standard 12 week trimester (MBA program 5158). The accelerated program is online only, and each course is delivered over a 6 week period (MBA program 5670). These two delivery styles allow you to choose the method of study that suits you best and both programs are assessed authentically meaning that you can apply what you learn to your workplace with immediate benefit.

In both programs you will study courses in sustainability, accounting and reporting, finance, people management, strategy and innovation and managing change through responsible leadership. Through study you will be equipped with an understanding of the key functional areas within a business and the challenges facing businesses. If you choose the fully flexible option you can choose to focus your electives in a particular area for example, finance, marketing or supply chain management. You can also choose to complete a major in Public Policy. Courses offered as part of the Public Policy major provide the breadth and depth of public management skills to advance your career both within the public sector and the private-public sector interface. The accelerated online MBA program has twelve set courses and no electives.

Our partnership with the Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand (IML ANZ) allows graduates to be awarded with the internationally recognised professional designation immediately after graduation*.
