The La Trobe University has unveiled a major expansion of its MBA program with students in regional areas able to experience the full benefit of face-to-face teaching from 2014.

The course will be available at the Albury-Wodonga, Bendigo, Mildura and Shepparton campuses.

Onsite delivery of the La Trobe MBA at the regional campuses means that students will study weeknights locally for some subjects. Other subjects will be run as an intensive block mode at one of La Trobe’s Victorian campuses, where the cohort will gather together to learn and network with each other.


The delivery design and structure will allow students to minimise travel and maximise their learning opportunities, as they engage with their class mates and MBA staff.

The school’s MBA was recently ranked No.2 in Victoria by the Australian Financial Review’s important 2013 BOSS MBA rankings, and given a 5 Star rating for a third successive year by the Graduate Management Association of Australia (GMAA).

MBA Program Director Professor Amalia Di Iorio recently hosted a series of information sessions about the new offering

“Our MBA offers significant competitive advantages to individuals and organisations and prepares graduates for a strong career trajectory. This is evidenced in these robust AFR BOSS rankings,” Professor Di lorio said.
