The MBA (Global) program is available to students with a Bachelor degree in any discipline, but with little or no work experience. Students will study a standard broad-based business curriculum since many will have neither a first degree in business or commerce nor work experience in which they have developed these basic competencies. They also seek opportunities to build their practical business skills and experience; hence this program has compulsory work integrated learning and internship components. The program provides support to students to reflect on their own strengths and development needs, and to build personal skills in leadership, problem-solving, and communication. The MBA (Global) allows students to build confidence and capability to operate in a wide range of countries. The typical MBA (Global) graduate would seek a graduate entry position in a multi-national enterprise or corporation and the program should prepare them for this career.
