The Griffith MBA. It's a new kind of MBA

Like all MBAs, the Griffith MBA explores all of the business disciplines you would expect—accounting and reporting, economics, finance, people management, marketing, strategy and innovation. However, what makes our MBA different is that it's built on core values that are crucial to doing business in the 21st century: sustainable business practices, responsible leadership and an Asia-Pacific perspective. If you are looking to develop your critical thinking skills and identify new solutions that will improve the world around you, then the Griffith MBA is the right fit for you.

MBA core values

The Griffith MBA has a focus on three core values:

Responsible leadership

Developing responsible leaders who demonstrate the highest levels of integrity and ethical behaviour.

Sustainable business practices

Creating value through social, financial and environmental approaches that lead to sustainable businesses and communities.

Asia-Pacific perspective

Preparing global citizens, with a special focus on the Asia-Pacific region.

You'll undertake subjects that explore these aspects and learn about:

  • new opportunities created by sustainable business practices
  • effective marketing strategies for new products and services
  • success in the 21st century business environment
  • the impact of changing economic frameworks
  • responsible and effective change management
  • legal issues for businesses

Study to suit your lifestyle

With our MBA, you can choose to study online, on-campus or a combination of both. You can also study full-time or part-time. Choose our fully flexible MBA and study online as well as face to face, alternating between attendance modes to suit your needs.

You can fast-track your study by completing our accelerated online MBA. Each course runs for six weeks allowing you to focus on one at a time and still graduate in two years. With six intakes a year, you can virtually start whenever you're ready.

Top rankings

Our credentials affirm the quality of our MBA and highlight the unique perspective we offer. The Griffith MBA is placed fourth nationally in the Australian Financial Review BOSS Magazine MBA rankings. It has received a 5-Star rating from the Graduate Management Association of Australia's 2015 MBA Star Rating. The CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings for 2016 place the Griffith MBA in Australia's top five. With a high-quality MBA from a world-class university, you'll have the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to take the next step in your career.

High-quality teaching

Our MBA teaching staff has considerable industry experience and extensive educational qualifications. More than 90% of our staff hold a PhD. This means that your teachers know how to practice business and understand the theory behind it. Through their experience and expertise, you'll learn how to make better business decisions.

Practical assessment and no exams

Whether you choose to study online, on campus, or both, you'll benefit from peer learning, group collaboration and will be supported by the latest audio and visual interactive learning tools to network with students and staff. There are no exams, so you'll be graded on practical assignments that you can use in your current or future roles.

MBA study abroad

Our fully flexible MBA offers opportunities for study abroad electives such as the Asia-Pacific Study Tour. Studying with MBA students from around the world can expand your networks and enhance your understanding of global business. With more than 200 partner institutions in 38 countries, there's an exchange to suit everyone.

Public Policy major

In addition to your core MBA studies, you can choose to complete a major in Public Policy. Courses offered as part of the Public Policy major provide the breadth and depth of public management skills to advance your career both within the public sector and the private-public sector interface.

MBA Scholarships

Griffith Business School offers a range of scholarships to support new MBA students successfully complete their degrees through direct financial support. A new range of scholarships are now available to support and encourage females, First Australians and international students to study the Griffith MBA.

Professional entry option

If you don't have an undergraduate degree but do have a wealth of work experience, you may be eligible for professional entry into the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration. You will need a minimum of six years full-time work experience, including four years of relevant work experience and two years in a role requiring leadership skills. You can choose to study on-campus, online or a combination of both.

Lyndel Smith

Lyndel Smith forged a human resources career first in Sydney and later in Brisbane, rising to a senior level. When she considered how best to take the next step forward with her career, one theme remained prominent. 'I knew an MBA worked well when it came to recruitment and I felt it could give me an edge at interview stage,' she says. 'Choosing to study an MBA at Griffith was both a strategic as well as a practical decision when I was considering which MBA best fitted my needs. The fully flexible program allowed me to juggle managing my family, studying a full-time workload, and carrying out HR consulting projects.'
