Study your MBA in Brisbane

Designed with a local context in mind to meet the demands of the community, while also maintaining a global perspective on modern organisations, our MBA curriculums are focused on developing leaders who are agile, decisive, innovative and ethically responsible.

You’ll learn from some of the brightest minds in the industry, people who have been in your shoes and know what it takes to get ahead. Under their guidance, you’ll learn how to turn theory into practice, and develop your skills in critical thinking, business fundamentals, reflection, strategy and leadership.

Subsidised places to help local businesses

To support the re-skilling and up-skilling of the local workforce following the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Federation University is now offering Commonwealth supported places to its MBA program. Commonwealth supported places (CSP) will be available to eligible students, which will reduce the cost to students significantly (up to 45%).

A CSP is where the Australian Government subsidies your fees, and you pay the Student Contribution Amount. HECS-HELP is also available to eligible students to assist in paying your student contribution.

Please read the CSP page for more information on HECS-HELP and CSP eligibility.

I wanted to study an MBA at a university that could offer me modern business insights and real engagement.

Federation University has a strong reputation for its industry engagement, offering an MBA with a very solid theoretical base, matched by real world experience.

The skills I gained have been invaluable in the positions I’ve held as a board director and as a CEO.
