Full-time MBA

Melbourne Business School, The University of Melbourne

Melbourne Business School's one-year full-time MBA is an intensive experience designed for maximum career impact. In a class of highly motivated individuals with a track record of achievement and supportive faculty who are leaders in their fields, you will be challenged and stretched to unlock your potential.

We also encourage you to connect with us on social media, sign up for our newsletter and come to our information sessions.

We hold regular information sessions about our MBA program around Australia and across the world.

Scholarships are also available to support your one-year full-time MBA experience.


All full-time and part-time MBA students are eligible to apply to participate in the International Exchange School program. 

Students continue to pay tuition fees to Melbourne Business School, but are exempted from tuition fees at the host institution, unless notified of a different arrangement at the time of application. However, the extra costs associated with overseas study (travel, accommodation, health insurance) are borne by the student.

The program also attracts exchange students to Melbourne every year. Incoming exchange students work closely with their Melbourne colleagues in syndicate groups and join in class activities.

Exchanges are currently offered to over 60 partner schools around the world. Recent Exchange activity to top business schools has included London Business School, Kellogg, HKUST, Chicago Booth, IESE and Duke University Fuqua.


A full-time MBA is an investment of your time and effort. It is also a considerable financial commitment. You need to be confident that it is an investment that pays off.

Throughout the program, we work with you to identify where you want your career path to lead, and to give you the skills to take you there.
