Sunshine Coast University Executive MBA (EMBA) Overview
The Sunshine Coast University EMBA is delivered flexibly with intensive weekend classes once a month for two years. To be considered for admission, you must have at least five years senior managerial work experience and attend an interview.
The EMBA is delivered on campus at USC on one weekend each month across approximately 22 months.
For the assigned weekends students will need to be available to attend classes as follows:
- Friday 9am–4.30pm
- Saturday 9am–4.30pm
- Sunday 9am–4.30pm
The EMBA program commences in Semester 1 for the first year of study, and continue each month until December. After a short break at the end of the year, the program will re-commence in Semester 1.
Each weekend of delivery combines two or three courses so that delivery of a single course is not concentrated in one weekend. In addition, exams are conducted progressively throughout the scheduled weekends, not at a separate time. Due to this intensive delivery mode you are able to gain a real sense of achievement and progress.
In addition to learning within a cohort, the program uses computer-based simulations and problem solving activities to challenge skills, attitudes and beliefs. The program covers management issues relevant to both the public and private sectors and enables you to work on competencies in areas such as financial management, economics and marketing.
To be considered for admission, applicants must have a prior degree and have at least five years senior managerial work experience.
Candidates whose first language is other than English must demonstrate an appropriate level of English proficiency. Refer to the English language requirements Applicants may also be required to attend an interview.
In the absence of an undergraduate degree the Faculty will consider evidence of the applicant’s ability to study at a graduate level. This may include: partial completion of an undergraduate degree and / or other post secondary qualifications.
