Success story: AMP

AMP has partnered with Griffith University to create an online Master of Financial Planning degree that combines theoretical coursework with practical, real-life experience as a financial advisor.

Professional Learning Hub

Ideal for teachers and schools, our Professional Learning Hub allows you to tailor professional learning opportunities, register for upcoming events, explore study pathways and book speakers for specific areas of expertise.

Masters of Business Administration

Like all MBAs, the Griffith MBA explores all of the business disciplines you would expect—accounting and reporting, economics, finance, people management, marketing, strategy and innovation. However, what makes our MBA different is that it's built on core values that are crucial to doing business in the 21st century: sustainable business practices, responsible leadership and an Asia-Pacific perspective. If you are looking to develop your critical thinking skills and identify new solutions that will improve the world around you, then the Griffith MBA is the right fit for you.

International business development short courses

Our International Business Development Unit hosts a range of professional development courses in areas such as human resources management and international relations. The Unit can also help design non-award short courses, drawing on its vast expertise.

Single Courses of Study

Not ready to study a whole degree; or looking for a pathway to study?

Single courses study are an excellent option allowing you to:

  • pursue a range of professional or personal interests
  • develop your skills and knowledge in a specialist area
  • meet accreditation requirements for registration with a professional body (Griffith does not assess qualifications for accreditation or registration purposes. Assessment of your current qualifications and eligibility must be undertaken by the related professional body.)
  • contribute to your vocational and personal development
  • take the first step to applying for an undergraduate or postgraduate program.
