MBA - Increasingly International
A unique, intensive MBA programme, delivered on weekends within 12 months, has attracted large number of students this year.
The condensed timeframe, practical focus and affordability of the Australian Institute of Business Administration (AIBA) 12 months MBA has appealed to executives and business owners from a range of industries.

AIBA is part of the Adelaide - based global higher education group, Gibaran Learning group (GLG), which specializes in business undergraduate, postgraduate and research qualifications and has more than 20 overseas centers that are currently delivering its' courses.
Upul Darnagama, Managing Director at Oxford College of Business said, "MBA participants are benefiting from the weekend delivery and practical focus of the program".
Haleema Noor, MBA programme coordinator at Oxford College of Business said, "Our participants have very busy schedules but the intensity of the program also appealed to them as they're ambitious and keen to begin applying the knowledge delivered through the program.
"The participants consider it an affordable investment in their future and they're already reaping the rewards of our intensive practical course,' she said.
Haleema Noor said that one of the reasons for MBA's success is that the program is run with small classes so there is lots of interaction and learning from one another. "Not only do our MBA students gain an international credential, many of them have said the knowledge they're gaining is already contributing to the bottom line of their business or workplace," she said.

The 12 Month MBA contains similar content to most Australian and International University courses, confirmed by the fact that the MBA is fully accredited. The intensive structure of the course forgoes term and semester breaks, which in traditional MBA models constitutes a substantial amount of time during the course.

Classes are held on weekends only to suit the requirements of working executives.
One subject each month
The 12 Month MBA is offered as one subject per month. This means that students need to focus on just one subject at a time, in addition to their usual personal and professional obligations. The prestigious MBA is a unique opportunity for those who are eager to embark upon this route of study and extending their knowledge base in the context of Global Business.
