Master of Business Administration (coursework and dissertation)
The UWA MBA offered in an intensive one-year format enables potential senior managers to rapidly develop their business acumen and leadership skills through tailored modules, teamwork assignments, case studies and a personal and professional development module.
The course will have significant overlap with the current Master of Business Administration (MBA) (42520), including a similar set of core units. A distinguishing feature of the full-time MBA is the inclusion of a strategic analysis and consulting project.
