The UNE online MBA will equip you to deal with the rigours of today's changing work environment. As a signatory to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) the GSB is committed to embedding corporate social responsibility and sustainability into our curriculum.
Our MBA will challenge you to think in new ways and encourage you to apply that learning immediately. From day one, you will be testing your knowledge against the real world, integrating it into your thinking and becoming a more effective and adaptable manager in the process.
The MBA enables students to develop a broad range of management skills and also provides the opportunity to specialise by majoring in human resource management or international business.
The MBA is comprised of twelve units, with eight core units and four electives. In addition students will be required to complete an e-portfolio over the life of their course that will enable them to undertake personal development and engage in reflective practice around their learning. The specific content of their portfolio will be determined in consultation with the Graduate School to allow students to pursue activities that will develop the skills they need.
The Leadership e-portfolio
The other key element of the MBA is the requirement to complete a leadership e-portfolio. It is where you can personalise your learning experience. At the time you commence your program you can work with the Program Director to determine the best use of the e-portfolio to help you develop the critical skills that you most need to become a more effective manager.
The elements of the e-portfolio are:
* A reflective practice that charts your learning journey.
* Personal development in which you will undertake the equivalent of 60 hours of face to face activity around areas of personal/professional development that you think will enhance your management skills. This could include attending training courses on communication, negotiation, public speaking, or attending seminars relevant to management offered by UNE or other providers. It could also include working with an industry mentor or engaging in service learning.
The specifics of your e-portfolio will be designed in consultation with the Graduate School of Business.
Who is it for?

In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test.
You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
