Federation Business School


Our applied degree is an innovative bachelor degree designed specifically for people studying high level certificates in TAFE. They focus on previous qualifications of diploma and advanced diploma along with work experience to allow students to gain the best possible credit for their previous studies into a degree.

The feature of our graduate management programs is the Master of Business Administration (MBA) - a generalist degree intended for those with some practical experience who now wish to widen their managerial knowledge and skills. The philosophy underlying the MBA is to enable our students to deal with the many facets of management. The program aims to develop skills in critical thinking, research and analysis through individual and team based work. The MBA focuses on critical areas of integration but facilitates some specialisation to accommodate specific career paths.

The following management programs are available at FedUni:
