Course overview

Deakin's Master of Business Administration (International) is designed to give high-performing students an opportunity to gain industry experience as part of a world-class MBA.

The course is available to applicants who may not have had experience as a business manager.  It includes an optional business practicum project unit, which is completed in an operating business environment to equip you with valuable practical managerial expertise.

High achieving students are able to move directly from their undergraduate degree to postgraduate MBA studies, saving time and money.

The course also features a research project option, which can allow you to conduct research into specific organisational issues, and may allow you to articulate into a research degree.  Emphasis will be placed on issues associated with international business management.
