Charles Sturt University

If you are an international student with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business and little or no work experience, CSU’s 16-subject MBA is for you. It allows you to deepen your business knowledge and strengthen your skills to compensate for limited work experience or prior business studies.

Contemporary program
To ensure the relevance and currency of course content, our academics receive specialist advice through an MBA Advisory Committee, consisting of senior practitioners from a broad representation of sectors, including banking and finance, higher education, technology, human resources, recruitment, health, professional services and government.

Flexible study options
Study online or on campus through CSU Study Centres located in Sydney and Melbourne. CSU’s flexible course lets you choose full-time or part-time study, study one subject a session, or fast-track your degree by studying up to four subjects a session.

Customise your studies
After completing the core subjects, you’ll select from a list of subjects relevant to your career needs and professional development requirements. Specialisations are available in the following areas: accounting and finance, entrepreneurship and leadership, or marketing.

Practical emphasis
Learn to develop strategic marketing and management plans and identify human resources management problems and develop creative solutions. CSU’s focus on application, experimentation and feedback is essential to develop your business and leadership knowledge and skills.

Pathway to the MBA
Many experienced professionals who wish to complete their MBA believe they can’t, because their prior qualifications may not be recognised as equivalent to an Australian bachelor’s degree. At CSU, we recognise and value your experience. If you’ve been working for several years, you could be admitted into the MBA via the Graduate Diploma of Commerce.
