  • Is Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or MBA the right choice for you?
  • Haven’t studied for a long time?
  • Keen to learn, but don’t want an education debt?
  • Keen to learn and don’t need a formal qualification?

Choosing this option will allow you to study the non-award MBA course by giving you access to 50 plus well-designed and structured modules across a broad range of business units. As you complete each unit you will gain a greater understanding of the subject matter that makes up an MBA degree accredited by Australia’s higher education regulator Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).

You are free to study at your own pace and choose the units that you are most interested in or select those units from the full array of online lectures that will be most useful to fill gaps in your knowledge.

Each unit consists of between six and eight modules, that should be completed in sequential order if you’re planning to seek an award/credit subject to eligibility criteria. Once you have completed all the modules for each unit, you can continue to the next unit.

  • Examples of award courses include diploma’s, associate’s degrees, bachelor’s degrees, graduate certificate, graduate diploma, master’s degrees, and doctoral degrees.
