MBA Fees Australia Up 6% In 2017

Average MBA Fees in Australia increased about 6% from 2016 to 2017, with the average program now costing about $47,500.

After increasing only marginally last year (from $44,200 in 2015 to $44,866 in 2016) as a result of a number of new low-cost entrants, the average MBA for full fee paying domestic students increased more than $2,500 in 2017.

Melbourne Business School remains the country’s most expensive MBA at $85,470 (up from $79,000 in 2015). The University of New South Wales (Australian Graduate School of Management) was second at $81,600 with Macquarie University’s Macquarie Graduate School of Management ($80,000) coming in third.

The fees listed are provided as a general guide only. They have been sourced from publicly available information or individual universities and business schools. In relying on the list below potential students should be aware:

The fees were sourced in December 2016 for students commencing in 2016 but may change in the future at each school’s discretion; and 

Where schools have not provided full degree fees MBA News has made a judgement on the full degree costs based on information available. For instance, many schools provide on indicative annual fee for degrees which take 1.5 years to complete. In these cases MBA News has used current year indicative fees extrapolated over 1.5 years (ie $30,000pa x 1.5 years = $45,000); and

Current fees for units (variably called courses, subjects, credit points etc) may increase in the future before the completion of your degree, increasing the overall cost of your degree; and

The fees listed may or may not include incidentals like textbooks and other learning materials. In the case of study tours these additional fees can be substantial.

Fees for international students may be different; and

While all care has been taken to ensure their accuracy please conult your school on your full fee liability before commencing your MBA.
