Accelerate your career or change direction with an MBA that fits around you.
Our Part-time MBA is designed for aspiring leaders who want to make a difference without putting their life on hold.
You can choose to start with a shorter commitment by studying a Professional Certificate, Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma – or jump straight into the MBA itself.
If circumstances change while you're studying, you can vary your study load to match. And when you're stuck getting to class, you can take part virtually alongside those attending in person. It's the most flexible way to study an MBA, while learning new skills that can be applied immediately at work.
