The CHC MBA is a 12-unit program which takes two years to complete.
The CHC Master of Business Administration (MBA) provides our graduates with up to date management knowledge and skills as well the opportunity to apply this knowledge and skills in professional practice. The program is built upon contemporary scholarly research, Biblical values, and the Christian intellectual tradition. Our program provides our graduates with the confidence to innovate within their organisation and produce results in an effective, ethical, and sustainable manner.
The CHC MBA particularly suits those individuals who have risen to their positions in organisations without formal qualifications in business management. These organisations can include not-for-profit organisations as churches, parachurch organisations and charities. The CHC MBA will help these individuals to integrate an ethical approach to business more fully with the practices and strategies of their organisation. The program explores the relevance of the literature in management, including biblically based literature, for strategic management in organisations. Students are able to complete a coursework pathway with a capstone project or to undertake a research pathway in which the knowledge gained in the course is given practical expression in an extended research project.
Students commence the MBA by enrolling in the Graduate Certificate in Management. Upon successful completion of the Graduate Certificate, students may articulate into the Graduate Diploma in Management, and then into the MBA. Students may choose to exit having completed either the Graduate Certificate in Management or the Graduate Diploma in Management, subject to the completion of course requirements.
CHC offers multiple entry points into the MBA program.
