Course Information

This program enables managers with extensive relevant experience but without a prior undergraduate degree in a business discipline to advance their management thinking through four foundation courses as a stepping-stone to more advanced courses within the Master of Business Administration. Griffith's business administration programs are built on three core values that are crucial to doing business in the 21st century: responsible leadership, sustainable business practices and an Asia-Pacific focus.
