CQUniversity Online MBA (Leadership) Course Structure
The CQUniversity MBA (Leadership) is hosted entirely online and self-contained, designed for you to access course content on any device with internet access.
Unit content is divided into modules which are then broken down into smaller bite-sized learning activities so you’re able to fit study around your commitments and lifestyle.
The MBA (Leadership) is comprised of 11 units: 10 standard and one capstone (equivalent to two standard). Each standard unit is designed to take 144 hours to complete, which equates to 12–18 months of full-time study. You will have up to five years from enrolment to complete the course at your own pace. Choose to spread it out evenly with 6–10 hours per week, do larger sections all at once on weekends or holidays, or anywhere in between – it’s entirely up to you.
After enrolling, you’ll have access to the first 10 units. You can work through these in any order; however we recommend you complete these in a set progression to ensure you gain the foundational knowledge later units will draw from. After successfully completing the first ten units, you’ll gain access to the final capstone unit in which you’ll apply and synthesise your learnings and experience gained throughout the course.
In line with CQUniversity’s values of inclusiveness and diversity, there are no formal entry requirements for the MBA (Leadership). However, the course is designed for those who have completed an undergraduate qualification or who have equivalent work experience, and will benefit those able to draw upon current and past employment to process concepts and scenarios presented in the course. You will be required to declare you consider yourself to be suitably qualified for the course before enrolling.
