About the program

The highly demanding business landscape often lends itself to furthering your management education. However, senior managers, executives, business owners and consultants generally find it difficult to juggle work while completing their MBA. An Executive MBA offers the flexibility and freedom that suits these professionals.

Take a Test Drive

Ranked #1 in Australia by students*, the Bond Executive MBA is offered exclusively to Australian upper echelon managers who rely on a complex matrix of managerial, organisation and analytical skills on a day-to-day basis. The program includes an immersive two-week China Study Tour, exposing you to eastern business culture, and how executives manage challenges in one of the world’s fastest emerging markets. Running in 8-day intensive blocks, the Executive MBA is structured to accommodate senior managers who cannot afford to take time out for full-time study.

On campus classes are scheduled in a series of 8-day intensive sessions, usually Sunday to Sunday, spaced out over 13 months or an extended 26 months. This unique delivery system allows managers to utilise their allotted holiday and long service leave to obtain an executive education. Bond's Executive MBA is adult learning cognisant and employs a unique combination of intensive lectures, tutorials, seminars, projects, presentations, assignments, examinations and computer labs. Students have the opportunity to integrate many of the major assessment projects with their workplace.

The Executive MBA is not available to international students who require a student visa.  For more details, please contact Kathie Parkinson at kparkins@bond.edu.au.
