A Master in Business Administration (MBA), in the present day, is high in demand not only within the country, but also internationally. There is also a considerable traction in the Asia-Pacific region. Educators believe that the MBA colleges in Australia have a unique way of combining theory and practice. Large emphasis on practical application of skills and problem solving in business environments has won students, enrolled across different disciplines, great credits in the industry.

Nevertheless, a wide range of theoretical concepts, from subjects including economics, measurement, governance, psychology, human behaviour, and leadership, aptly compliment the practical counterpart. All business schools in Australia work closely with business, industry, and government, and is backed by a strong alumni. The schools consult with current, past, and prospective students, to ensure a relevant and useful curriculum.

The MBA can be pursued from various locations in Australia - Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, Darwin, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania and Northern Territory.

Although the eligibility criterion for MBA in Australia is a specific amount of work experience there are also alternate ways to enter an MBA program. A number of the Australian business schools offer graduate certificates and graduate diploma programs. The entry requirements for these programs are far more flexible than for the full MBA program.

The fees charged for the MBA programs vary from case to case. The cost mostly depends on the duration (could either one or two years), infrastructure and overhead costs, including residential accommodation, involved in the course.
