In the first module of the MBA program, you commence with 'Leadership: People and performance', the first of the four integrated units on leadership that provide a critical foundation for your personal and professional development through the entire program. In 'MBA 1', three integrated topics explore business models and strategy, markets and customers, and financial and managerial accounting. These topics explore contemporary issues in business and organisations, and address complex, global issues. While each has a distinctive disciplinary dimension, they are taught in an integrated pedagogy. All of these units are then integrated into 'MBA Labs: Strategy project', which involves a supervised consulting assignment for a host organisation.

  • Module 2. Innovation
    In the second module of the MBA program, you continue the leadership series by focusing on people and performance, and the leadership competencies involved in impacting organisational performance. In 'MBA 2', three topics explore operations and project management, economics and society, and business finance. The unit on 'Influence and negotiations' provides an understanding of the primary technologies impacting industry sectors globally, and focuses on the innovation and entrepreneurship process; it includes a minor applied project in this area. While all of the units in the module inform the project work to follow, this unit has the primary role in establishing the foundation knowledge for the major technology and entrepreneurship project in the following semester.
  • Module 3. Transformation
    In the third module of the MBA program, you focus on Influence and negotiations skills in your Leadership unit. 'MBA 3' introduces the topics of business analytics, organisational transformation, and global business strategy. In each of these topics, you work on critical business issues of general interest and application, but that are also relevant to the major technology and entrepreneurship project in Module 3. This project involves you teaming up with other students to work on a supervised consulting assignment under supervision in high tech sectors, or in start-up incubator on their own venture.
  • Module 4. Globalisation
    The final module of the program involves the conclusion of the leadership series, emphasising personal and professional development, particularly as it relates to your career advancement. In 'MBA seminars', you customise your program of study by selecting from a range of advanced seminars in areas of academic or professional interest to you, and will undertake an integrated minor applied project. The 'MBA Labs: International business project' unit involves research and consulting in preparation for the applied project that then takes place overseas.
