The MBA masterclass series brings a range of current and emerging business-focused topics to you more quickly than a traditional trimester unit, with the intensive study format providing an additional way of fitting your studies around your work and lifestyle commitments. You’ll also benefit from the diverse experience and unique perspective each student brings to the classroom.
The masterclasses are designed for MBA students, counting as credit points towards the course, but the masterclass content is highly valuable to all interested in furthering their career in the business world. Whether it's communication skills, project management or managing change in a workplace, there's a masterclass available that will help you develop your career and enhance your CV.
The masterclass format is succinct and informative. Each masterclass runs between 12 and 20 hours of facilitated delivery. By stacking multiple masterclasses together, you can earn course credit towards your degree. You can find information on each masterclass topic, agenda and assessment criteria on the masterclass registration page, with additional details provided following registration.
Note that FEE-HELP is not available for masterclasses and full payment is required upfront. For further information, please read our frequently asked questions (PDF, 132KB).
You must attend all sessions listed for any masterclass you are attending.
Stack classes for credit
MBA masterclasses can be stacked together to fast track your degree.
- 2 masterclasses are the credit equivalent of 1 elective unit
- 4 masterclasses are the credit equivalent of 2 elective units
Keeping in mind masterclasses can be completed in as few as 12 hours, you can use stacking to accelerate your progress while building valuable business skills tailored to your career goals.
