The Master of Business Administration (MBA) has been redesigned to provide you with a wide range of functional knowledge, expertise in business transformation and greater flexibility for you to manage the demands of postgraduate studies. With Bond’s three-semester-per-year timetable, you can complete an MBA in Australia in just one year. The new structure allows you to tailor your degree to align with your career ambitions.

Developed using the pillars of innovation, data analytics and business transformation, and with a focus on evidence-based decision making, Bond’s MBA develops global leaders who think critically, creatively and strategically.

The MBA program is structured into three parts, all making up 40 credit points – the equivalent of one semester of full-time study.

Core functional bootcamps

The first part of Bond’s MBA program features eight bootcamps delivered in intensive mode, providing you with an immersive experience in an efficient timeframe.

The bootcamps equip you with the core knowledge and provide you with the necessary foundation to progress through the MBA. You will study interpersonal dynamics, leadership, motivation and organisation, effective decision making, managerial economics, marketing, accounting, and financial decision making. The new program has minimised the time students are required on campus, allowing the flexibility students need to balance their professional and personal lives.

Business engineering

The second part of the MBA utilises Bond’s distinct research strengths, equipping you with the skills and experience to stand out in the marketplace. This semester focuses on creative thought, data analytics and strategic management. These subjects provide you with the necessary skills to do the Business Transformation capstone project.

MBA electives

You can choose any postgraduate elective in the Business School, assuming prior knowledge has been met. The flexibility and customisation have been introduced to help you study what is right for you and your career aspirations.
