Starting from January 2021, the USQ Australia MBA has an exciting new and unique MBA structure that is not available with any other MBA in the country.

Applicants who have only 14 years of education or who have limited work experience can apply for the program via the Graduate Certificate program route. This consists of 4 of the above courses over a period of 8 months. On completion of the Graduate Certificate, the student can then articulate into the remaining 8 courses of the MBA.
