Griffith University Online MBA Course Overview

The Griffith University Online MBA is based around values of responsible leadership; sustainable business practices; and a global perspective with the aim of making you an effective globally responsible business leader.

The online program can be completed in two years part-time with each course delivered over a 6 week period. These two delivery styles allow you to choose the method of study that suits you best and both programs are assessed authentically meaning that you can apply what you learn to your workplace with immediate benefit.

You will study courses in sustainability, accounting and reporting, finance, people management, strategy and innovation and managing change through responsible leadership. Through study you will be equipped with an understanding of the key functional areas within a business and the challenges facing businesses.

You can also choose to complete a major in Public Policy. Courses offered as part of the Public Policy major provide the breadth and depth of public management skills to advance your career both within the public sector and the private-public sector interface. The accelerated online MBA program has 12 set courses and no electives.
