Program Description

Master of Business Administration

Southern Cross University

Do you want to be inspired and challenged to look at business problems and develop innovative solutions?

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a globally recognized and valued qualification that will give you skills and knowledge to solve complex issues and become a business leader.

The Southern Cross MBA will develop your knowledge in core business areas such as global business, corporate governance and managing people, as well as across accounting and finance and marketing.

You will also have the opportunity to develop a specialization in a focused area of business, and conduct an applied research project on a topic of interest to you under the supervision of an industry expert.

As an MBA graduate, you will open the door to a future in leadership in industries across the spectrum.

Career Opportunities

The MBA equips graduates for managerial roles across a broad spectrum of industries in the public and private sectors.

Graduates can find management roles in areas such as accounting, information and knowledge management, human resource management, health services management and tourism and hotel management.

Major Areas of Study

Students are required to study four foundation units, eight core units and select either a specialization, which includes an industry research project, or two elective units in addition to the industry research project. By studying a specialization, candidates build substantial and specialized expertise to complement the general management applications they learn in the core units.
Specialisations:
  • Accounting*
  • Managing and Leading People*
  • Tourism and Hospitality Management
  • Research
* These specializations are also available to International students in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.

Assessment methods

The course incorporates progressive assessment and examinations. Students are assessed in each unit on the basis of written and oral assignments. These may be business reports, case studies, presentations, research studies and/or plans.

Teaching methods

On-campus students experience a variety of teaching approaches including lectures, tutorials, online activities and podcast virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.

Lectures may be streamed live or pre-recorded; either way, students can download a recording at their convenience.

Each week, students progress their learning by following activities, readings and case studies laid out, step-by-step, in a website for each unit. As they move through the learning outcomes, they can discuss their progress in online forums and ask questions of their peers, lecturer or tutor.

This is still a rigorous degree, demanding up to 150 hours of study for each unit.
