About the program

This program includes the elements of a classic MBA, but the addition of a strong maritime and logistics focus provides students with an excellent level of understanding of these industries. As a result, graduates will be equipped for senior management positions in the sector.

Eligible applicants may apply for direct entry to the MBA program. Students complete 12 units and have two options available for study. They can choose to undertake the course fully by coursework or, alternatively, primarily by coursework with a final dissertation equivalent to three units of study.

A popular alternative pathway to the suite of MBA's involves students commencing with the Graduate Certificate (four units) or the Graduate Diploma (eight units). The courses are integrated and build upon each other.

For example, a student enters at Graduate Certificate level and successfully completes the four units of that course, these units are fully recognised when progressing into the Graduate Diploma or MBA course.

The Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma are also available as standalone courses for those who wish to receive a highly regarded management qualification in a shorter timeframe.
