    Southern Cross University Online MBA Course Overview

    With a Southern Cross University online MBA, you’ll develop both the business know-how and the practical skills to advance your career or build your own business.

    You’ll examine contemporary management and develop solutions to complex commercial situations all through the prism of the fast-paced, ever-evolving global digital economy. The course is designed to enable you to get the most out of the program while fitting study seamlessly around work, family, and other priorities. It is 100% online.

    You can begin at one of six times throughout the year, and adjust your workload to suit your schedule. You study broadly across a comprehensive suite of business disciplines, and take one of four specialisations to gain the deep knowledge you need to enhance your professional expertise.

    You’ll undertake a practical research project in your workplace to reinforce your learning and to apply that learning in a real business environment. Along with specialist industry capabilities, you’ll develop the soft skills employers crave and businesses need; leadership, problem solving and communication.

    Four foundation units give you a solid grounding in the basic principles of business and management. If you have a relevant undergraduate degree or work experience, you could receive these as advanced standing and complete the course in two-years while studying part-time. If you want to build the foundations of your business knowledge, take the full course (16 units). You can still graduate in under three years studying part-time.
