Our Mini MBA is set in interactive classrooms at one of our five campuses across Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide.. The benefits of studying in a classroom setting include being able to share first-hand experiences, ideas, and questions with peers and our expert facilitators. You will study alongside like-minded people and strengthen your network.

"The facilitators have been excellent. They are energised and engaging and open to questions."
"I’ve enjoyed the Mini MBA experience quite a bit. A lot in fact. Not only have the facilitators been really good, but the content has been on point."
