“They also need an education that provides them with improved job prospects, ultimately leading to careers of distinction and influence.

“Griffith University aims to meet these demands on a domestic and international scale with high quality program initiatives, and the development of the Griffith MBA online program makes it an increasingly attractive degree in this context.”

The innovative, 100% online offering gives MBA students an unprecedented flexibility to manage their studies, and builds on the face-to-face intensive courses that have proved successful to date.

“Our fully flexible MBA which can be studied online, on campus or a combination of both has been very popular among students to date and will continue to be an option,” MBA Director, Associate Professor Nick Barter (below), said.

The accelerated learning mode now means students can complete a fast-tracked online MBA in two years, and with six intakes a year students can start almost immediately.

“We’ve tailored our MBA for those who know what they want and just want to go out and get it. It will get you where you need to be as efficiently as possible.”
