Transform your career with a human-focused MBA from ECU

A Master of Business Administration can take your career to new heights.

Whether upskilling in your current role or forging a new career, studying a Master of Business Administration can transform your life.

Edith Cowan University’s (ECU) MBA program will give you the skills to address the challenges of today and lead for tomorrow.

ECU’s MBA is designed to equip graduates with the necessary skills, knowledge and mindsets to drive and build high-performance teams through human-focused leadership.

Delivered by experienced, engaging and accessible academics, the program combines a contemporary, research-informed curriculum bringing theory into practice.

ECU’s School of Business and Law is one of just 6 per cent of business schools in the world awarded AACSB International accreditation – one of the highest achievements a global business school can attain.

This international acknowledgement of quality comes after the School’s ranking within the top 250 business schools in the world in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings for business and economics.

School of Business and Law Executive Dean Professor Maryam Omari said now was the perfect time to get an MBA at ECU.

“Not only is industry crying out for skilled leaders who can drive change, ECU is best positioned to deliver,” she said.

Learn today, lead tomorrow

ECU’s MBA has been designed to wrap-around the needs and commitments of professionals.

It is delivered in online and face-to-face formats, at convenient times across the year.

You can tailor your study to fit your career.

For ECU MBA student Joseph Cameron, this meant fitting his study around a busy consultancy business requiring regular travel to remote mine sites.

“ECU was super flexible in understanding my situation,” he said.

Mr Cameron chose an MBA to learn a broader range of skills.

“There were a number of skills I wanted to round out my experience, and this MBA has really helped me achieve that,” he said.

“My MBA had elements of finance, marketing and many things I hadn’t touched before.

“Running my own business, it’s been really valuable.”

Real world relevance

Lisa Pascoe is a senior manager in a Fortune 500 company and was looking to boost her leadership skills and expand her network.

She started her MBA with a specialisation in People and Culture in summer school and will earn her qualification in just 20 months.

“It’s already proven so practical and relevant,” she said.

“I’ve actually provided a couple of assignments to my executive team to use, so the material is real-world-relevant enough to be looked at for potential implementation within our organisation.”

Ms Pascoe said ECU School of Business and Law’s AACSB accreditation would also have real benefits for graduates, whether they studied an MBA, Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma.

“I think it means people who do an MBA at ECU will have even greater growth opportunities.”
