Online, values-based MBA gives you an edge

Employers understand that MBA graduates create value for their organisation, regardless of the industry they work within. Many chose to appoint MBA-qualified managers knowing that they have the skills and knowledge to become effective, insightful leaders.

Excelsia College’s new online Master of Business Administration (MBA) provides this sought-after knowledge through a values-based approach to postgraduate study, equipping students with ethical management skills to achieve career goals in the business, government or not-for-profit sectors.

Professor Felix Tan, Head of Business at Excelsia College, recently said “by offering one of the few values-based MBAs in Australia, we produce graduates who are not only well equipped to become the brightest leaders, but who are also grounded in a values-based approach to business.

We encourage our students to think both critically and innovatively, and to tackle complex issues confidently by integrating theory, practice and reflection. Our graduates are able to implement effective management strategies and exceptional business practice through well-rounded ethical leadership.

Excelsia College will commence enrolling MBA students from late October. There will be a total of six intakes per year, with each study period lasting seven weeks. This means students can start at any of the six times through the calendar year, rather than waiting for mid-year intakes or traditional semester start dates.

“Excelsia’s online delivery enables you to study one unit at a time, and in a way that fits around your family, work and other commitments,” Professor Tan said.

This online postgraduate course offers flexible entry and exit points. Students can start with a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma and upon completion, can either leave with one of those qualifications or progress onto their Masters. Consequently, students progressing through the full MBA will complete in 32 months, part-time. Depending on previous education and work experience, students can potentially complete the MBA in as little as 16 months.

MBA graduates are more likely to experience enhanced job opportunities and be hired in a competitive job market. Furthermore, the QS Top MBA Jobs & Salary Trends Report 2015/16 found that Australian MBA holders earned the third highest average worldwide, with an average accredited MBA graduate salary of $171,299.

An MBA degree can take your career to a whole new level, providing you with valuable tools to help you progress professionally. To learn more about our new online course, contact our Enrolment team on 1300 917 916.
