Initially, I wasn’t sure if it was a good opportunity compared to an internal project, but I’m glad I went with the internship because I had a wonderful experience.

Additionally, this internship enabled me to solidify my professional objectives and given me a greater grasp of the field I intend to work in after graduation.
I undertook an internship in my final year through VIT, and it proved to be an exquisite growth opportunity for me and my peers. During this internship, we were introduced to the industry and gained valuable experience while developing our client’s product. Communication skills, requirements handling, prototyping, product development, version control, team co-ordination are a few of the skills I attained, additionally it enabled us to develop new capabilities which would prove incredibly beneficial to my career.
I would like to take a moment to thank you, Mr. Sharif, for an incredibly insightful and informative lecture. Your passion for the subject matter was evident, and it made the lecture more engaging.
I especially appreciated how you took the time to explain complex concepts in a clear and concise manner, making it easier for me to understand the material. Your use of real-world examples also helped to solidify my understanding of the topics covered.
"I want to express my sincere gratitude for your invaluable support throughout this course. As I near its conclusion, I feel compelled to share my feedback.First and foremost, Sharif has proven to be an exceptional and knowledgeable teacher. He consistently made himself available to assist students and address our concerns. When I commenced this course with limited knowledge of the IT industry, he went above and beyond to provide me with the necessary guidance. Sharif patiently explained fundamental IT concepts, terminologies, and technical jargon.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) course is accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the regulator of higher education and the accrediting authority for higher education courses in Australia. You may look up the National Register for this course. VIT is registered by TEQSA to offer and confer Australian higher education award for the completion of an accredited Australian course of study – MBA.
The qualification conferred upon completion is recognised by the Australian Government and will provide you with a competitive edge in the job market, both in Australia and overseas.
Yes, the MBA course is currently accredited by TEQSA.
You may see on the National Register that the Course is pending renewal. This is because TEQSA accredits higher education courses for a certain period of time, and almost all higher education providers must renew the course accreditation when the current accreditation expires. The renewal of accreditation with TEQSA is typically a lengthy process, during which time, the National Register will show that the course is pending renewal and the current course accreditation continues until TEQSA makes a decision. The same process applies to almost all other providers.
VIT has submitted to TEQSA an accreditation application for the MBA course.
Full time means you study 6-8 units in an academic year. Part time gives you the flexibility to take a lighter course load, which gives many working people more flexibility. Part time study is only available to students not on student visa. It is estimated each unit could take between 6 and 10 hours each week of classes, readings and assignments. This can vary depending on how quickly a student becomes familiar with the course material.
A full course load of 16 units is expected to take 2 years of full time study. However, you may be eligible for recognised prior learning (RPL) based on your education and work experience.
Yes, if you have at least 5 years professional, managerial or supervisory experience. You are first enrolled in our graduate certificate in business administration (GCBA, the first four units of our MBA) and on successful completion, you may progress to finish the rest of the MBA curriculum.
The business world is becoming increasingly complex. We believe our students need to be armed with a wider range of knowledge than others so they are more employable and can better face the challenges of tomorrow. Harvard University started the world’s first MBA in 1908 where students still undertake a 2 year degree. Why would we deviate from best practice? Most 12 unit MBA courses do not have specialisation electives. At VIT though, we offer students the opportunity to specialise in one of four areas, including management, information systems, finance & accounting, and tourism & hospitality. This ensures far more in-depth knowledge of these areas.
All Australian accredited degrees are approved by the Australian Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency. So, the VIT MBA is academically equivalent to any other institution in Australia and around the world.
This is not the standard practice at VIT, as the core units are not granted as part of the RPL. However, only in very special circumstances the RPL Committee may grant credits for core units if strong evidence of RPL was presented.
Not all units are offered at any time. You may choose elective units from those scheduled in the timetable in a particular study period.
Domestic students do not have financial aid, however, they may be eligible for FEE-HELP from the Australian government. Some may be eligible for our scholarships in special circumstances. To know more, please contact our team on [email protected].
If you have a recognised bachelor’s degree in business (AQF7 equivalent) or related discipline, or a recognised bachelor’s degree or above in any discipline and at least 2 years professional, managerial or supervisory experience, you may be eligible to receive credit for recognised prior learning. However, your academic qualifications must be 10 years old or less to be recognised. The VIT RPL committee will assess RPL applications on a case-by-case basis.
We understand it is a big decision to pursue an MBA and you may not be sure if you have the time or feel suited for it. That’s understandable and natural, and we’re here to help.
Each intake period we have a limited number of 5 places available for students to enrol in one unit. These places are only open to either females or Australian indigenous people.
This gives you the opportunity to sit in on the Sustainable Marketing class, for free, no obligations. Just soak up knowledge and learn.
If you decide though after 5 weeks that you would like to participate in assessments, you can pay a $250 assessments fee. You may be granted a 3 week extension to complete your assessments at the discretion of the course co-ordinator.
If later you decide to pursue an MBA with us and want to receive credit for the unit taken, a $750 credit fee will be payable
You are considered a domestic student if you:
– are an Australian citizen; or
– are an Australian permanent resident visa holder; or
– are a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder, have been ordinarily resident in Australia for 10 years and entered Australia before the age of 18 over 10 years ago.
