Graduates will be equipped and ready to take on leadership and managerial careers and roles in a range of settings both locally and globally.

Professional & Community Engagement
Students will have regular contact with industry representatives throughout the course. Guest speakers are a feature of many units, and many assessments and learning activities will mirror real-world challenges. A final industry project capstone unit will allow students to work on an authentic project and analyse a given problem, and devise solution in connection with industry professionals.
Industry relevant material
The applied components of the course incorporate material that is specifically relevant for the business management industry. In the computer laboratories, students gain experience with business planning, analysis and statistical packages; they also gain experience with other computer programs such as MS Excel.
The course will emphasise a creative and innovative approach to Business education as the key to competitiveness in a dynamic and global economy. It is intended that the course would consist of a combination of both domestic and international students. Students should gain benefits from a broad range of cultural diversity and life experiences of their fellow students.
Students gain an advanced and integrated body of knowledge as well as the skills to analyse, interpret and apply concepts and ideas in business administration. They also gain key skills in researching information, using both online and library materials. All of these factors will help graduates of the Master of Business Administration to be lifelong learners.
