An MBA is an advanced general management degree designed for managers who wish to develop a solid business foundation, as well as skills and knowledge of cutting-edge business practices for the 21st century. At Griffith we offer two MBA programs, both are focused around our values of responsible leadership; sustainable business practices; and a global perspective with the aim of making you an effective globally responsible business leader. The two programs we offer differ in their delivery style; one is fully flexible and can be studied online or face to face in a standard semester. This program has 9 core courses and 3 options. The other program is online only, it has twelve set courses and each course is delivered over a 6 week period. These two delivery styles allow you to choose the method of study that suits you best and both programs are assessed authentically meaning that you can apply what you learn to your workplace with immediate benefit. In both programs you will study courses in sustainability, accounting and reporting, finance, people management, strategy and innovation and managing change through responsible leadership. Thus you will through study be equipped with an understanding of the key functional areas within a business and the challenges facing businesses. If you choose the fully flexible option you can choose to focus your electives in a particular area for example, finance, marketing, supply network management, or even architecture. Griffith University offers a number of study options for Business Administration.
