Flex

‘Flex’ is an intensive delivery option, designed specifically for students who want a face-to-face instruction model but who find it difficult to attend weekly classes. Flex delivers only MBA subjects over six weeks and includes 3 evenly spaced Saturday workshops. These fortnightly Saturday workshops are offered in each of Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide and attract working professionals with multiple, competing priorities.

Imagine finishing your working week with a stimulating discussion, based on the issues you face daily! Imagine building your network as you engage in collaborative problem solving immediately relevant to your work. Imagine contributing to others’ experiences in multiple and different industries as we discover many of them are the same! Do all of this and work your way toward completing your MBA. There are two Flex intakes each trimester and a summer intake, meaning you can complete up to 7 subjects in any calendar year.

It’s called ‘Flex’ because it’s flexible, working in with your schedule and your priorities. Have the flexibility of not locking yourself into any one method of instruction. You have the option to swap between the different modes of delivery when enrolled in an MBA at Torrens University. Combine online study with a Flex intake when you know you have some downtime at work. Do a face-to-face class when you want to experience studying at a ‘normal’ pace. Do all three when you want a challenge! The options are there and you just make it work the way you want it to.

Flex is a terrific way to chip away at your MBA in short sprints. Note that ‘flex’ still means there are assignment deadlines and that you still commit to the intake when you sign up for it. Flex has a shortened census date but most students find that once they are in the Flex ‘zone’, they swear by it! Talk to a CCA today to reserve your place at the next Flex intake.
