"The MBA has allowed me to make more informed decisions faster than before. It has given me an understanding of the core business of other units within my organisation, allowing me to ask the right questions before I make my own business decisions.

The University of South Australia's Business School delivers a professional program and is well connected with international universities and industry. Importantly, the university is flexible enough to address the needs of full-time workers that are juggling multiple family and work demands whilst still holding students to account for deadlines and quality outcomes".
