WELCOME FROM
THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Welcome to the University of Adelaide Business


School - a new era in business education.
Delivering world-class, relevant programs in the
undergraduate, postgraduate, and post-experience arenas,
the University of Adelaide Business School is the premier
provider of tertiary business programs in South Australia.
The Business School brings together a talented team of
over 70 academics with a wealth of experience in teaching,
researching, consulting and business practice. Staff are
at the forefront of global business research and have truly
international perspectives.
The Business School is currently pursuing accreditation
through the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate
Schools of Business (AACSB). This is the ultimate level of
endorsement sought by business education providers and
offers substantial benefits to students who undertake an
MBA program at the University of Adelaide.
This brochure sets out the details of the MBA suite of
high quality programs, including the “nested” Graduate
Certificate in Business Administration and Graduate Diploma
in Business Administration.
Our emphasis is on assisting you to develop problem-solving
and communication skills, leadership and team building
skills, critical and analytical abilities which enable you to
better understand and deal with the complex issues of
management in a changing business environment.
In selecting students we look for high quality people with the
potential to not only benefit from but also contribute to the
educational experience. While practical in orientation, the
learning experience will provide you with a solid theoretical
grounding in management.
You will have opportunities to apply what you learn through
workplace-based projects.
I invite you to review our programs and
contact us to discuss your study options.

2 MBA PROGRAM 2011


THE ADELAIDE MBA (MASTER OF
BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION) PROGRAM

Why should you do an MBA at Adelaide?


The MBA provides a broad base of knowledge to equip our students for
managerial roles, rather than just the acquisition of an off-the-shelf set of
skills. The aim is to develop problem solving and communication skills,
leadership and team building skills, and analytical and critical abilities that
will enable you to understand better and deal with the complex issues of
management in a rapidly changing business environment.

The MBA program emphasises the development of abilities to:

• Master leadership skills

• Understand the functional interrelationships between different areas of


an organisation and the broader interaction of the organisation with
its environment

• Recognise and act effectively on problems and opportunities confronting


an organisation

• Coordinate and apply an organisation’s financial, physical, technological


and human resources in pursuit of important objectives

• Understand and communicate effectively with people inside and outside


an organisation

• Evaluate current management policies and practices to develop new


ways to improve organisational effectiveness.

Students in the program come from a wide variety of disciplines,


professional backgrounds and cultures, many with high standing from
undergraduate areas. The School seeks to provide them with a solid
grounding in academic disciplines relevant to management. Students will
acquire the conceptual and analytical abilities they need to make and carry
out decisions at a senior managerial level.

While the 12 course MBA program suits the needs of many, some students
seek a deeper level of knowledge. The MBA (Advanced) program provides
opportunities for these students, including:

• Those seeking a wider range of knowledge, which is needed for the


highest levels of organisational leadership

• Those seeking to specialise in one particular area, by undertaking


four electives

• Those seeking to undertake further study as part of a life long learning


process, and wishing to gain accreditation for this

• It is possible for students enrolled in the 12 course MBA to progress into


the 16 course MBA (Advanced), as both programs have a common core.
