Who you are

You are a busy mid or senior-level manager determined to advance into a challenging role where your decisions directly steer the performance, culture and structure of your organisation. You also want to make lateral thinking a habit and cultivate a network of peers. If this sounds like you an MBA (Executive) is a logical step to get you where you want to go.

Where it can take you

The Master of Business Administration (Executive) from Swinburne will equip you to lead global, multidisciplinary teams in executive-level managerial roles. Far beyond that, when you complete the MBA (Executive), you will be able to confidently create a culture of creativity and spearhead innovation within organisations. With design thinking inculcated as habit, developing an idea, commercialising it and sustaining its growth will become second nature.

 

Senior leadership is a more encompassing role than it was a decade ago. You’re dealing with constant change and uncertainty There’s a new type of workforce, a greater focus on transparency and governance, the 24-hour news cycle and cryptocurrency is changing how we deal with money. We understand this.

Professor Peter Holland Course Director
