Exec MBAs relevant

Executive MBA programs from the Australian Graduate School of Management are structured for flexibility, convenience and relevance, says WA state manager John Barrington.

The University of NSW-based AGSM was the first business school in Australia. It runs the Executive MBA program nationally on a part-time basis targeting middle and senior managers.

“One of the great advantages about getting your MBA from the AGSM is the fact that you can study it anywhere in Australia and keep up to date,” he said.

“It is offered synchronously so travelling executives can pick up the week’s lesson at any Australian city.

“Materials are given complete so there’s no time wasted looking for journals and the like.

The course is conducted in three stages: the first year is spent gaining general manager qualifications, the second qualifies the student for a diploma of management and the third is the ‘executive year’. Qualifications are awarded throughout the course.

“The course is oriented to work-related projects so you make use of the skills immediately. For instance, students may take part in a marketing audit on their place of employment,” Mr Barrington said.

“And there is payback to employers who see the immediate benefit from skills gained.”

Mr Barrington said the AGSM was “a premium provider offering leading-edge information with linkages to more than 20 business schools around the world”, and was superior to teaching led programs as it was research-led.
