Our courses are flexible

We recognise that in order to be successful, you need choice in specialisation areas, and flexible course delivery. The Deakin MBA provides a wide range of study options and offers more than 20 specialisations. Optional components allow you to complement your academic studies with practical learning experiences that, for many, prove life changing.

You can study when, where and how you like, and tailor your study around your work and lifestyle commitments. Deakin's trimester system offers three study periods each year, enabling you to commence your course at different times of the year. It also enables you to speed up or slow down your study while still completing your course within the normal time frames.


Practical learning and real experience

Study options abound with the Deakin MBA! Experiential units, study tours, business practicums and intensive residentials where you can complete a unit in five intensive days. These initiatives provide you with unrivalled opportunities for self fulfilment and development. They will also enable you to present to employers with the kind of transferrable skills most valued in today's ever changing workplace: independence, initiative, high order communication and problem solving skills, leadership, and the ability to work as part of a team.

Audacious Leadership

Audacious Leadership is an adventure-based unit in leadership that will challenge your habits of perception and reaction, allowing you to gain insight into your own leadership, its strengths to be built on, and its weaknesses to be made sound.

'And I thought I'd signed up for a fun sailing trip! My real adventure was to journey into self discovery and in particular my leadership and behaviour styles under stress. A superb unit which became far more rewarding in the months that followed its completion.'

Paul Allen, January 2011
