Entry requirements

At CHC, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.  You may have existing undergraduate study which can assist in moving into a Master of business administration. However, if you have never studied before you can still jump into an MBA using our professional experience pathway. Evidence of 5 years professional experience and references can be used to show equivalent experience.

Early exit options

Our Master of Business Administration is a nested degree program. This means that should you need to exit the program early because of a great new job, you will still have earned a postgraduate qualification.  Officers and Course Coordinators can provide more information and discuss your individual circumstances.

Alternate path to the MBA

You may be a manager in the so-called ‘third sector’ (including such not-for-profit organisations as churches, parachurch organisations and charities) who has risen to your position without formal qualifications in business management. While you may have an undergraduate degree in another field and/or have accrued considerable experience in one or more management position, the lack of formal qualifications and specialised theoretical knowledge can undermine your future career development and/or job security.

CHC recognises your experience and through the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) seeks to bridge the gap. The CHC MBA provides you with specialised theoretical knowledge and skills in management as well as the confidence to apply this knowledge in your actual or intended professional practice context. The units within the MBA present the relevance of theoretical knowledge and values-based literature to you today and enables you to expand influence and help them strategically grow their organisation.
