Core Courses/Competencies (12 units)

These courses/competencies are designed to be applicable to all types of organizations and industries so there are no specializations.

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.

Admission and Teaching Periods

There are six 8-week teaching periods in the year (12 periods over the full 2-year MBA duration) starting in January, March, May, June, August and October so there is fantastic flexibility in when you join and how you schedule your study.
