Lead others to greatness amidst complexity

We’re living in a world that’s frequently volatile, unexpected and ambiguous. It’s essential that current and future business leaders are able to rapidly understand and solve complex problems in a systematic, integrated way.

Success demands the ‘leadership mindset’. And with our new ‘pre-experience’ Master of Business Administration (Emerging Leaders), you can start acquiring it immediately after graduating from any bachelor degree—and complete your studies in as little as 12 months.

What will you do?

The Emerging Leaders MBA is part of the Adelaide Business School’s MBA suite, and is designed for aspiring leaders and young entrepreneurs looking to fast-track their pathway into business management. This program is normally completed over 12 months so is ideal for those coming straight from a Bachelor’s degree. The degree will equip you with:

  • mastery of complex leadership concepts and skills—from identifying technical and human challenges, to mobilising collaborative action in different cultures and environments
  • highly advanced strategic thinking skills—the ability to see the bigger commercial and societal picture and make decisions with a truly global outlook
  • high-level problem-solving, research and analysis, critical thinking and self-reflection skills
  • outstanding management capabilities in critical business functions, including finance, accounting, economics, marketing and business law.

You’ll also:

  • partner with an experienced industry mentor to plan and develop a sustainable entrepreneurial enterprise through the Australian eChallenge or Tech eChallenge
  • build extensive professional relationships and networks
  • have the opportunity to undertake international exchanges at world-leading European business schools.

Where could it take you?

The Master of Business Administration (Emerging Leaders) will prepare you to lead projects, teams and, ultimately, organisations all over the world. You could even take your destiny entirely in your own hands by launching your own business.

Note: Intakes occur throughout the year, in January, May and September, with summer school options in January.
