    MBA Management
  • Course description
    An MBA is now the globally recognised qualification for senior personnel and executives within both the private and public sectors.  As the impact of change, the importance of strategy and intensification of competition increases, organisations are demanding managers who can contribute a depth of understanding in the business community as a whole.  The growing economic importance of entrepreneurship has also re-emphasised the need for a clearer understanding of the theory and practice relating to business and management in both new and existing organisations.

    Course structure

    All participants take six modules in Semester 1 and six modules in Semester 2. The modules run for 12 weeks. The basic module delivery method will centre around a two-hour lecture slot and one-hour tutorial every fortnight. Total contact hours will be approximately 27 per module and together with private study and preparation for tutorials, seminars and assessment, each student is expected to dedicate approximately 100 hours to each module. Teaching methods will include lectures, seminars, tutorials involving the discussion of concepts or directed to problem solving, case study sessions and workshops (including computer-based sessions).
