GENERAL INFORMATION

The MBA is a two-year course, and is available on both a full time and part time basis..

Many managers, especially in the so-called ‘third sector’ (including such not-for-profit organisations as churches, parachurch organisations and charities), have risen to their positions without formal qualifications in business management. They might have an undergraduate degree in another field and/or have accrued considerable experience in one or more management positions. Often, they recognise gaps in their theoretical knowledge and/or skills or they lack confidence in professional practice. For some, management studies at Masters level are recommended or required for promotion to more senior positions. Other managers have experience in their own businesses and desire to integrate their faith more fully with their business practices.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is intended to provide graduates with specialised theoretical knowledge and skills in management, and confidence in the application of these in their actual or intended professional practice contexts. The course 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.

The MBA is available on both a full time and part time basis. Students who enrol in subsequent study periods will complete the course in 12 study periods, or 2 years (see Course Delivery below).

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.

The next intake of students into the postgraduate Business courses will be in Semester 1, 2020. Applications are now open for commencing in February 2020.
