BENEFITS OF AN MBA FROM AUSTRALIA
- Globally-recognised MBA
There are at least 75 internationally recognised and renowned business programmes offered by Australian universities. Several of these have been accredited by global accreditation bodies including AACSB and EQUIS. An Australian MBA implies high career prospects and huge opportunities for progression – both in India, and elsewhere across the world.
- Academic innovation
Australian MBA programmes are designed to combine excellent classroom-based teaching – with plenty of hands-on experience, via internships, capstone projects, consultancies, international exchanges and so on! Each B-School offers its own take on the MBA – all of which are designed to inculcate innovation and leadership skills among its graduates.
- Best of 2 Worlds
Owing to its close proximity to the Asia-Pacific region, MBA programmes in Australia offer a combined focus on Western and Easter business practices and phenomena. As an Indian student, this double exposure will equip you to work anywhere in the world, as a major value-add to your employer.
- Work opportunities
Higher education in Australia offers plenty of ways to strengthen your CV as you launch your global career. First, the Australian Student Visa permits international students to undertake up to 40 hours of work per fortnight. And second, international students with an Australian degree in Australia can stay back for 2-4 years on the Post-Study Work Stream Visa.
- Major business cities
Australia has some of the world’s biggest international hubs for business – including the cities of Melbourne and Sydney, each home to major multinational corporations as well as a number of start-ups. Industry feeds symbiotically into academics, with students benefiting from interactions with experienced members of industry, as well as direct experience.
- Global exposure
Australia attracts students from across the length and breadth of the world – from the USA to China and Japan. If you chose Australia for your MBA, you would join an enormous cohort of international students – not just in your university, but country-wide! As networking and making connections across national and cultural barriers is essential in business, your interactions with fellow internationals will equip you for the same.
