DURATION: 2 years full time

ENTRY POINTS: February/July/November

LOCATION: Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Rockhampton

In the fast-moving business world, it is crucial for business leaders to have an understanding of all facets of a modern organisation. Managers must be prepared to address customer needs and employee issues, while staying focused on the goals of the organisation.

CQUniversity’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) is designed to enhance the opportunities for graduates to obtain positions involving major managerial responsibilities in commerce, industry and government. Its broad aim is to provide a program which will enable its graduates to apply contemporary management and business knowledge and perspectives in an interdisciplinary manner to the dynamic environments in which they are likely to find themselves as managers.

Within the MBA program you will study eight core courses focused on a range of areas of business such as marketing management, human resources management, economics for business and strategy development and initiatives. In addition to these core subjects, you will complete three courses either in one area of specialisation or study a range of subjects leading to a non-specialisation. The areas of specialisation include financial management, human resources management, management accounting, and marketing. You will complete your studies with one elective course that can be selected from any area in the university.

This degree is offered both on-campus and by distance education, full-time or part-time, giving you the flexibility to balance study with your work and family commitments. An MBA qualification is highly sought after by employers, both within Australia and internationally, enhancing your employment opportunities and giving you greater opportunities to work overseas or within a global organisation.
