What will I learn?

Lead future-shaping major initiatives

Technological disruption is changing organisations’ plans worldwide. But this key management requirement remains: organisations will always depend on leaders who can capably manage the large-scale initiatives they undertake to adapt and grow.

The ability to efficiently and effectively lead major commercial projects will give you—and your enterprise—a vital career and market advantage. Our Master of Business Administration (Project Management) can be entered immediately upon completing any bachelor degree, and sets you on that path.

What will you do?

The MBA (Project Management) is part of the MBA suite and can be completed over two years. The degree will equip you with:

  • a deep understanding of the entire project management process—from cost control and contractor management, to scheduling and legal considerations
  • a thorough working knowledge of all internationally recognised project management methodologies
  • highly advanced strategic thinking skills—the ability to see the bigger commercial and societal picture and make decisions with a truly global outlook
  • high-level problem-solving, analytical, critical thinking and self-reflection skills
  • a firm grasp of the principles of adaptive leadership, systems thinking, organisational behaviour, change management and social enterprise
  • outstanding management capabilities in critical business functions, including finance, accounting, economics and marketing.

You’ll also:

  • build extensive industry and professional relationships and networks
  • receive invaluable ongoing industry mentoring from high-profile Adelaide MBA alumni
  • have the opportunity to undertake international exchanges at world-leading European business schools.

Where could it take you?

The Adelaide MBA (Project Management) will prepare you to move rapidly into project leadership roles within your chosen industry. You could head a unit overseeing major infrastructure upgrades or installations; lead a team assessing the viability of new market entries; or manage the organisation-wide implementation of new mission-critical software.

Note: Intakes occur throughout the year, in January, May and September, with summer school options in January.
