Macquarie University’s Global MBA is a truly transformational learning program designed to prepare you for the complex challenges and opportunities of tomorrow’s workplace, with future-focused capabilities including strategising, leading, analysing, influencing, adapting, and problem solving.
But it’s not just what you learn that makes the Global MBA it so innovative – it’s how you learn, with a “stackable” format that offers unprecedented flexibility and affordability for a graduate degree, online or otherwise. It’s also a game-changer for admission into the program, opening up this transformational education to learners that lack traditional qualifications.
Flexible Learning Pathways
Starting a graduate degree like the Global MBA is a major investment in your future, but it’s also a major investment of time and money. So it’s not surprising that many prospective applicants have questions before making that commitment. What are business school courses like? Is this career path a good fit for my skill set? Is this the right program for me?
The stackability of the Global MBA program aims to help you answer those questions yourself. You can take an open course and “try before you buy,” develop your skills, and even stack up credits before committing to a full degree.
With an Open Course (USD$49/month), you get access to high-quality course materials as well as your fellow learners. You also get to take graded quizzes and/or peer-reviewed assessments to achieve a digital badge issued by Macquarie University and Coursera – a credential you can add to your LinkedIn profile to showcase your new skill. So, if you want to see what the Global MBA is like before committing to the full degree, you can check out the course in the open course with a digital badge (USD$49/month).
If you’re pretty sure that the Global MBA is for you but don’t meet the Global MBA entry criteria, you can get started at your own pace with the Graduate Certificate of Global Business Practice.
Graduate Certificate Admission
Students who do not meet the Global MBA direct admissions criteria can still apply to the degree through the Graduate Certificate of Global Business Practice.
Graduate Certificate applicants are required to have an Australian Quality Framework (AQF) level 7 bachelor’s qualification or recognised equivalent with a weighted average mark (WAM) of 65, and three years (full-time equivalent) supervisory or professional work experience;

Graduate Certificate applicants must also meet the required standard of English for this program, an academic IELTS of 7.0 overall with minimum 6.0 in each band, or equivalent. All applicants to coursework programs at Macquarie University are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English.
