Make it matter

We’ve taken MBAs to the next level so you can change the way you shape the world, personally and professionally. With a focus on values and sustainability, Griffith provides an MBA like no other.

High-quality teaching

Every Griffith MBA teacher combines considerable industry experience with extensive formal education, including a PhD. This means they know how to practice in the business world and understand its theory. You'll benefit from their experience and expertise to make better business decisions.

Authentic assessment and no exams

Whether you choose to study online, on campus, or both, you’ll benefit from peer learning and group collaboration and will be supported by the latest audio and visual interactive learning tools to network with students and staff. There are no exams, so you’ll be graded on practical assignments that you can use in your current or future roles, including writing business plans, developing workplace scenarios and formulating financial plans.

Professional entry pathways

If you don't have an undergraduate degree but do have a wealth of work experience, you may be eligible for professional entry into the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration or Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management. You can choose to study on-campus, online or a combination of both.

Study to suit your lifestyle

At Griffith, we offer two ways to study with us. The first is fully flexible and can be studied online, face to face or a combination of both in a standard 12-week trimester, either part-time or full-time. The second is our online accelerated program, delivered part-time, with each course delivered over 6 weeks.

Guaranteed relevance

Your MBA is future-proofed with access to our MBA for Life program. Extend your learnings beyond the classroom and have access to the very latest industry insights for life.

MBA study abroad and international internships

Our fully flexible MBA presents opportunities to study abroad, including our Asia-Pacific Study Tour, international exchange opportunities and the Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) program. WIL offers a range of experiences, including internships and projects, some that can be completed online.

Retha Du Plessis

“I decided to go back and study because I realised I was very experienced in HR but did not have much experience in or knowledge of general business practices and culture. That is what motivated me initially. Griffith University changed the way I view the working environment. My Griffith MBA also provided me with an opportunity to get involved in organisations and activities not necessarily part of my 'day job.' The opportunity to make a difference presented itself at a networking night when I crossed paths with the CEO and the HR Board Director of Suited to Success/Dress for Success. This organisation helps people overcome barriers to employment by providing styling services, resume tips and interview tricks. The skills I learnt in my MBA are so transferable, so why not use them in a way that helps people?”

Retha volunteered for Suited to Success/Dress for Success for six months as the organisation navigated a restructure, and now, alongside her full-time position as a HR Director, she volunteers as a Board Director.
