Chris Mills MBA graduation

Chris Mills was our first MBA graduate to complete the MBA entirely online. Chris, who is a medical doctor trained at Flinders now living in Melbourne, completed the MBA in just 11 months. This was Chris’ first experience with online learning and he admits he “was initially concerned that the online program would be able to deliver a program that would be as robust as a face-to-face traditional teaching style” however on completing the program we were pleased to hear that he was “proud of what the organisation has been able to deliver through this program”. He went on to say that he “thought the approach was professional and the content outstanding”.

A focus on you and your career development

MBA students have the opportunity to participate in scheduled workshops at Victoria Square on a Saturday.

These workshops, led by industry specialists provide an opportunity to extend your networking and communication skills, consider career planning, marketplace awareness, career management strategies, negotiations, selection methods and resume writing.

Early indications from students and alumni who have recently completed these workshops show that as a result of their participation, students were already experiencing an improvement in their job search self-efficacy and seeing rewards for their efforts.

Kathy Hope, a recent MBA graduate, attributes her recent job move and promotion to participating in the workshops.
