CSU's Master of Business Administration (MBA) offers busy professionals a highly flexible and workplace focused course that can fit in with lifestyle goals and commitments.
Increasing competition, global warming and decreasing supplies of renewable energy sources are among the challenges facing organisations that wish to have a sustainable future. To meet such challenges, organisations require managers with the intellectual ability and skills necessary to manage people and businesses in turbulent environments.
With a focus on the fundamentals of the key business areas, CSU's MBA will provide you with the opportunity to engage with the latest management theories and cutting edge business practice. It is this focus on sound management theory, along with the latest findings from industry, that equips our graduates with the critical skills necessary to become a more effective manager and a future business leader. Our MBA curriculum is constantly reviewed to ensure the content and delivery are of global quality and the standard expected of a leading international business school.
Students undertaking the Master of Business Administration by distance education can choose from a range of specialisations. A limited number of specialisations is available to international students on campus at CSU Study Centres in Sydney and Melbourne.
CSU's MBA is designed to provide graduates with a wide variety of career opportunities. Our graduates have achieved successful careers in both the public and private sectors, within Australia and overseas.
For some of our graduates, CSU's MBA is an opportunity to accelerate their career within their organisation or industry. For others, the MBA enables them to switch industries and move into other areas for career growth and promotion.

Ms Sue McGinn OAM graduated in April 2006 with an MBA from Charles Sturt University, which she undertook to enhance her contribution as Dairy Farmers group's sole female Director.
After having studied at another university, I have found the support, encouragement and subject delivery at CSU to well and truly exceed my expectations.
CSU offers Business courses in the discipline areas of mathematics and statistics, IT, marketing, management and accounting.
The decision to study at CSU was an extremely easy one to make. The University offered all the flexibility required to study while working full-time and travelling overseas. With the ability to fast-track my studies with the three-session timetable, CSU was the obvious choice.
The issues and topics we are learning in class are relevant to the industry today. The importance placed on career management has been highlighted in a few of my recent subjects and this is one very valuable tool regarding the workforce.
