World-class MBA Program
The UniSA Business School MBA is world-class, having achieved the maximum rating from the Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA) for seven consecutive years—a track record shared with only one other Australian MBA.
The MBA program is highly interactive, contemporary and internationally focused. As a student you can pursue the General Management MBA, an elective based MBA, or a specialised MBA. With eight specialist options to choose from, including marketing, HR and Finance, you can tailor your study to suit your individual strengths, needs and interests in pursuing a career as a generalist or as a highly practical and efficient executive. There are even options for you to study up to four chosen electives, allowing you to create a flexible, tailored learning experience.
‘We care about supporting you through the MBA, in helping you to choose an MBA that suits your professional development needs, and providing you with an outstanding learning environment where you can network with peers, who are also future business leaders.’ – Dr Don Clifton, MBA Program Director
The MBA program focuses on a mix of practical and case study focused learning, which can be applied to the workplace from day one. As the MBA is of the European style, where participants are already experienced professionals, it means that you and your fellow students can benefit greatly from learning from each other and from the high quality, research and industry experienced professors, providing a high level of relevant and practical knowledge exchange. This also gives you a wealth of opportunities to network and create connections with your peers in a range of local and international industry partners.
The UniSA Business School MBA not only provides you with a sound and solid basis of business knowledge and skills, but also helps you to go on and achieve your career goals, building on your past work experience, or even assisting and aiding your career change and a focus on a new work path. MBA students who join our Executive Partner Program receive a powerful mentoring experience that provides high level networking opportunities. This is a rare and valuable opportunity for an international student wanting their CV to reflect practical evidence of interacting with business professionals in the Asia Pacific region.
Exceptional learning and industry linked opportunities, with considerable flexibility in timetabling and online / face-to-face study options, are not the only things that you can benefit from by studying at the UniSA Business School. International students will benefit from the opportunity to receive a high quality education whilst being in the beautiful, gracious and exciting location of Adelaide. A diverse culture of music, art and literature, fine food and wine, and a vibrant city with stunning beaches and fantastic weather are all on offer to you, ensuring that your time at the UniSA Business School is an unforgettable experience.
As part of your experience at UniSA you can become a member of the MBA alumni as well as getting involved in a range of activities and social opportunities, enabling you to pursue interests outside of the classroom whilst making friends and becoming part of a welcoming community.
