The Griffith MBA. It’s a new kind of MBA

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.

Lyndel Smith

Human resources professional Lyndel Smith forged a HR career first in Sydney and later in Brisbane, rising to a senior level. When she considered how best to take the next step forward with her career, one theme remained prominent. 'I knew an MBA worked well when it came to recruitment and I felt it could give me an edge at interview stage,' she says. 'Choosing to study an MBA at Griffith was both a strategic as well as a practical decision when I was considering which MBA best fitted my needs. The fully flexible program allowed me to juggle managing my family, studying a full-time workload, and carrying out HR consulting projects.'
