Plus, you’ll have the benefit of undertaking a reputable and quality MBA that the business community rates in the top 10 in Australia (Australian Financial Review 2019 Boss MBA rankings), awarded a global Tier 1 ranking (CEO Magazine’s Global MBA Rankings 2019), and is priced below the average cost of an MBA giving you more reason to become an influential leader.

An MBA from CQUniversity provides you with the opportunity to advance your business career and consider the development and implementation of successful strategies that can be used to practising business and organisational opportunities in today's fast-paced and ever-changing environment.

The MBA also holds the United Nation’s certification the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and has been designed to meet the rigorous international accreditation standards of AMBA from the UK.
