Selecting an MBA that will help boost your career goals

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is an internationally recognized business degree and a valuable qualification for those aiming to become global business leaders. For individuals looking at career progression it is important to select an MBA that provides a practical preparation for individuals in business and management. Ten or twenty years ago, any MBA might have been enough to secure the best jobs. Today, employers want to know where you studied.

Oxford College of Business (OCB) has a history of designing innovative and industry-relevant programmes which help answer the questions senior executives face in the country today. This pioneering nature and ongoing quest for excellence was as well the key to forming a dynamic academic partnership with Australian Institute of Business (AIB), which has seen the four star accredited, globally ranked MBA being delivered in the heart of Colombo over the past four years.

Most popular MBA in Sri Lanka
The 12 Month MBA offered by the Australian Institute of Business (AIB) in affiliation with Oxford College of Business is approved by University Grants Commission (UGC) and is the most popular MBA programme in the country today. The AIB-MBA have been rated among the best in the world which is the main reason why it is popular with students worldwide. The Australian Institute of Business (AIB) MBA is a four star postgraduate degree and recognized by authorities both locally and internationally:

  • UGC (University Grants Commission)- National accreditation body
  • IAU (International Association of Universities) -Worldwide accreditation body
  • AQF (Australian Qualification Framework) - Australian accreditation body
  • CRICOS (Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students) - Commonwealth/ EU accreditation body

This is an honour shared by only a few of the world's elite business schools.While there is a place for rankings as a rough guide, MBA candidates should look far deeper at what a business school does before committing to applying there.

The 12Month offered by OCB provides professionals with the potential to become senior executives and to learn the theories that successful multinational corporations have been built on, while nurturing the soft skills required to be inspirational and successful leaders. Oxford College of Business encourages cooperation with each other's intellectual peers to create solutions to problems faced in the real world and build powerful corporate networks to increase every student's global professional reach.

MBA in 12 months
Traditional MBA models involve several individual subjects being offered generally over a 12 week period. For a busy executive, this makes his/her learning susceptible to external factors such as unexpected work and personal issues that could occur during this time. While traditional MBAs are designed for undergraduates with very minimal work experience, OCB's 12 Month MBA is designed for senior managers with over 5years of managerial work experience. A typical student following a 12month MBA will bring in a lot of practical experience from their workplace into the classroom and share the same with his/her colleagues.

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 fact that the examination is just a month away from the start of each subject has contributed to high completion rates, as the students are continuously motivated.
Industry reputed MBA Faculty
The OCB's MBA faculties have distinguished academic backgrounds and relationships to the corporate world, bringing years of experience to the classroom. The faculty selected to the programme noted CEOs, directors of MNCs and industry experts. They pride themselves on practical business expertise, having held positions of leadership in companies throughout the world. All members of the faculty are selected from AIB and they either hold a doctorate degree or an MBA equivalent in their field of specialty. It could be stated that OCB currently has one of the best MBA lecture panels in the country.

Fair competitive advantage
The current business environment is very competitive and the job market is very crowded. These factors are taken into consideration when designing the 12month MBA at OCB. The AIB MBA is aimed at helping students differentiate themselves, their career, and their business. Students are taken that extra mile to give them the edge which will help in them delivering an outstanding performance.

Oxford College of Business is committed to delivering a fair competitive advantage for the students which is the reason why the OCB- AIB MBA is ranked No.1 in Sri Lanka today. For more information contact Malindu Ranasinghe - 0714151547 or visit
