Purpose of the Program

A Practical MBA infused with Business Design Thinking: Empowering aspiring managers to lead change with innovation.

The Master of Business Administration provides recent graduates with the opportunity to acquire contemporary business knowledge and skills that will enable them to take up management positions with private, public and non-for-profit organisations. Graduates are trained to manage the operational needs of an organisation by effectively understanding and negotiating processes for the financing, production and marketing of goods and/or services, and contributing to the strategic management of the organisation. Students are able to use business design thinking to provide innovative solutions to contemporary business problems.

The program provides learning experiences for students that enable them to apply knowledge of management theories and concepts across core business operations. Students are involved in a variety of learning activities, which include lectures, role plays and other experiential activities, including seminars, discussions, individual and team presentations, team activities, preparing business reports and preparing and presenting business consulting projects.

The capstone experience in Business Operations (Strategy and Application) incorporates a computer based business simulation in which the knowledge and skills of other courses are drawn on and integrated. The program emphasises practicalities and skills to address real work issues in contemporary business settings.

The program is a pathway to success in business for recent graduates with only a few years of working experience.  MBA graduates are to be found working across a wide range of organisations, mostly in private enterprises but including management consulting, the public sector and not for profits.
