The end of year often prompts many business professionals to take stock of their career and set new career goals for the year ahead. While completing a postgraduate business degree can be the next step in developing the skills and knowledge necessary for career advancement, many balk at the time commitment required.
However, the intensive block-mode delivery of the Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) at the University of Newcastle ensures business professionals can study with minimal interruption to their personal and professional lives.
“Classes run on Fridays and Saturdays, scheduled throughout the year from February, with breaks in between,” said Director of the EMBA, Dr Christine Armstrong. “Students can finish the program in just twelve months, making it the perfect career-changing degree for busy professionals.”
Delivered at the University’s NUspace city campus, the EMBA is a practice-oriented graduate business degree, designed for experienced employees wishing to learn alongside like-minded people to advance leadership, business and management skills.
EMBA graduate and Executive Manager of social-purpose organisation, Annecto, Michael Hercock says his EMBA experience ultimately made him a better leader.
“The degree skilled me in taking the next steps in advancing myself and our work through the digital transformation of the workforce within the areas of innovation and design thinking, mindfulness and leadership development,” said Michael.
Another benefit for Michael was the extensive industry exposure.
“The cohort learning created a diverse learning opportunity with different business leaders allowing you to really look out of the square of your industry and see business from multiple perspectives,” Michael says.
Entry into the Executive Master of Business Administration is available to applicants who have:
An undergraduate degree or higher in any field of study plus a minimum of seven years relevant organisational experience, OR
A minimum ten years’ relevant organisational experience, including three years in a management position.
NB. An undergraduate degree is not a requirement.
Admissions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. To find out more about the EMBA go to http://www.newcastle.edu.au/emba, or contact Christine Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0412688432.
