MBA Full-Time (Emerging Leaders)

The Master Business Administration (MBA) Emerging Leaders is a full time program for candidates without any professional experience looking to advance and accelerate their journey into leadership.

The Emerging Leaders MBA is part of the Adelaide Business School’s MBA suite, and is designed for aspiring leaders and young entrepreneurs looking to fast-track their pathway into business management. This program is normally completed over 12 months so is ideal for those coming straight from a Bachelor’s degree.

Who is this program for?

Following the structure of a traditional generalist focused MBA, the MBA (Emerging Leaders) has been created for recent graduates from non-business fields looking to complement their undergraduate knowledge with business and leadership skills.

Graduates from engineering, science, and health focused degrees will be well equipped with the tools to deal with the managerial complexities of today’s workforce, while also helping them stand out from others in their respective industries.
