The University of Queensland Business School MBA: What You Need To Know

Based in Brisbane on Australia’s Gold Coast, the University of Queensland Business School makes post-grad study convenient for business professionals.

The University of Queensland is situated in Brisbane; a city with a modern and diversified economy that is underpinned by the agriculture, mining, construction, tourism, manufacturing, and professional services industries. Its MBA is a strategic leadership and management program that equips graduates with the knowledge and practical experience to adapt to any business situation or industry at senior levels.

The full-time MBA can be completed in 12 months; however, students can take 2 years, or even up to 7 years to complete their MBA. Uniquely, the program, by design, has 12 courses with no electives, majors, or specializations to get students in and out. Most of UQ’s 12 MBA courses offer micro-consulting opportunities or assessments where students can use their own business contexts to build their knowledge.

UQ’s MBA students have the option to partake in an immersion program in a variety of countries. They also can take advantage of a Career Resource Centre that delivers specialized events, programs, and workshops; a social economic engagement program that offers them an opportunity to give something back to the community and learn about the challenges facing the not-for-profit sector, and a pair of consulting opportunities with the Wharton Global Consulting Practicum and the UQ-Fudan MBA iLab Consulting Program.

The program culminates in the Integrated Strategic Analysis Capstone course, with the idea that students will integrate key concepts learned in previous courses in a consultancy project for one of UQ’s partner companies.

UQ requires four years of full-time work experience post-graduation for entry into its MBA program, yet most come in with about 13 years which is advantageous to the class as a whole; they bring unique perspectives and professional experiences in with them. International applicants must complete the GMAT and score a minimum of 550 in order to be accepted.

UQ MBA Director and Associate Professor in Marketing Dr Nicole Hartley says, “Our MBA will broaden your critical thinking, creativity, and agility to respond to an ever-changing business landscape. It will help you rise to the unexpected and lead the business when it needs it most.”
