MBA revamped

We've recently completed a comprehensive overhaul of the Master of Business Administration program, making a range of improvements to enhance your post-graduation prospects.

Under the new program, you'll experience an even stronger emphasis on practical and reflective work and have more opportunities to network with prominent industry leaders.

The MBA program equips you with the skills you'll need to respond to changes in the marketplace. It includes an emphasis on modern challenges such as ethics and sustainability.

Studying an MBA is a journey of personal and professional development that can propel your career to the next level.

Postgraduate scholarships

With the support of an ECU scholarship, we can help you realise your ambitions by improving your financial situation and enabling you to successfully complete your course.

A scholarship can make all the difference if you’re undertaking longer term study, like a Masters or PhD.

We offer a comprehensive range of business courses across sought-after disciplines such as accounting, finance and banking, human resource management, marketing and project management.

Our courses have been accredited by associations including the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia, the Australian Institute of Project Management and the Australian Human Resource Institute.

Graduate Certificates in only six months

Graduate Certificate courses are a great way to diversify your current skills and knowledge.

And with only three or four units, they can be completed in as little as six months full-time.

Some Graduate Certificates require you to hold a Bachelors degree; many are available if you’ve had five or more years' experience in a particular field.

A completed Graduate Certificate is a recognised pathway to other postgraduate programs.

Our Masters degree courses vary in length, depending upon your qualifications and whether those qualifications are in the same discipline as the degree. See Masters degrees below for details.

Taniya Banerjee

"Little did I know that Enactus was the key that would open a lot of doors for me later on in my life."

"I would like to thank ECU’s amazing staff who guided me and told me about so many different opportunities. Those opportunities gave me purpose and really helped me feel like I was part of a community…ECU’s community. My favourite experience was volunteering with a group called Enactus, an international non-profit organisation that brings student, academic and business leaders together. Enactus gave me the opportunity to lead a group of students, to gain valuable experience as a Project Manager, to represent ECU in Sydney and Brisbane, and to share my experiences with other students."

"My study experience at ECU has been a really good one."

"At ECU the lecturers are very approachable and supportive and are always willing to help out. Since I have been working whilst studying, it is very clear to me that what I've learnt is highly relevant and easily transferable into the workplace. The skills and knowledge I have gained during my studies have been invaluable. It has even helped me better understand the recruitment processes which in turn helped me to pitch myself much more effectively in my job search."
