Deakin's distinctive MBA is one of Australia's premier business education programs. For 30 years, the Deakin MBA has been offering relevant skills, contemporary knowledge and real experience, while developing the business leaders of tomorrow.
Coherent themes of teamwork, sustainability, globalisation and social and regulatory responsibility run through the entire MBA program. The focus is on profit with principles, which means graduates understand the importance of ethical behaviour and sustainable decision-making. The program content is informed by research, scholarship and industry engagement.
Real learning experiences
The Deakin MBA program is renowned for its experiential learning opportunities. Innovative teaching techniques include our intensive Residential Units where you can complete a unit in one week. You can also choose to enrich your degree with study tours offered in Australia, China, Europe, India and the United States.
The Deakin MBA can be undertaken full-time or part-time and in any combination of Cloud (online) mode, Campus mode, residential and overseas study modes. Whatever you choose, the Deakin MBA is designed to be a stimulating and satisfying study experience.
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.
