Master of Business Administration New

Mark yourself as a leader 

Do you aspire to leadership roles within your chosen industry? Our Master of Business Administration can give you a significant career edge at the earliest possible opportunity, together with deep knowledge in one of five areas of specialisation: Entrepreneurship; International Trade and Development; Wine Business; Project Management; or Marketing.


What will you do?

Studied over two years full-time, the Master of Business Administration is available for entry immediately upon successful completion of any bachelor degree. It equips you with:

  • deep understanding of your chosen area of specialisation
  • highly advanced strategic thinking, problem-solving, analytical, critical thinking and self-reflection skills
  • a firm grasp of the principles of adaptive leadership, systems thinking, organisational behaviour, change management and social enterprise
  • outstanding management capabilities in critical business functions, including finance, accounting, economics and marketing
  • extensive professional networks, including through industry mentors.

You’ll also develop valuable research skills, and have the opportunity to undertake exchanges at world-leading international business schools (travel restrictions permitting).


Where could it take you?

Our Master of Business Administration will give you a head start towards all kinds of senior leadership roles within your chosen industry. You could head a specialist product development team; progress to leading innovation in a national division; and in time drive companies’ visions as a CEO. Perhaps you’ll take your destiny entirely in your own hands and launch a business.
