Course content

UWA’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) has a strong focus on current business trends and is highly desirable for professionals looking to move into higher levels of management.

Course description, features and facilities
The MBA Flexible is ideal for experienced professionals looking to transform their career and build on their skills in leadership and management.

As an MBA Flexible student, you will complete core studies in all the principal areas of business – accounting and finance, decision making, economics, organisational behaviour, marketing, and strategic management – giving you the skills and knowledge necessary to take on the greatest business challenges.

In addition, you are able to choose from a range of option units, allowing you to tailor the course to suit your interests and goals. The MBA Flexible includes specialist focus areas in Leadership, Natural Resources or General Management, as well as option units in areas such as finance, entrepreneurship, and social impact.

Our flexible delivery mode allows you to tailor your studies to suit your lifestyle. MBA Flexible classes are offered on weeknights and weekends, as well as in intensive teaching blocks and intensive overseas programs. From 2015, select core units will also be available in a fully online mode, with high levels of interactivity. You may choose to study up to four units each trimester, or even take a break from study altogether for a trimester—the decision is yours. The MBA Flexible can be completed in sixteen months full-time or up to five years part-time.

The MBA Flexible has intakes in January, May and August each year.
