MBA - General

People often ask is an MBA worth studying? Some come back to study to look for a career change, others for career advancement and others to acquire new professional knowledge and skills. When looking at the many industries and professions, the one thing they all have in common is that they are constantly facing a changing business environment and there is more pressure on executives to be flexible and remain connected.

The JCU MBA provides flexible learning platforms to allow students to work and study, while the revitalised curriculum focuses on governance, sustainability, creativity and innovation, conflict management and resolution and a changing world.
