Why choose our MBA?

There are many reasons to choose an MBA from CHC. But here are three.

Accelerated and Flexible
Our 6-week modules help you to engage with the material and apply new skills and knowledge immediately. The MBA is also 100% online and allows you to learn wherever and whenever you want.

Encouraging
Our faith-integrated curriculum will encourage you and provide you with insights about your career, leadership, and calling

Practical
You can choose to work on project that will benefit your existing organisation or will help you launch new ventures. Our MBA helps you and your organisation to take the next step.

How is our MBA different from other MBAs?

Working in a values-based organisation requires a unique set of skills, balancing profit with purpose. The CHC MBA provides you with the skills and mindset to do both. For example, our units give you skills to reconcile competing priorities and diverse stakeholder groups. We help you balance the needs for continual innovation and the strategy of your organisation while remaining true to mission. We help build into your capacity to manage staff and volunteers through contemporary, faith-based leadership and management.

The next intake of students into the postgraduate Business courses will be in Semester 1, 2020. Applications are now open for commencing in February 2020.

More about the CHC MBA

You may be a manager in the so-called ‘third sector’ (including such not-for-profit organisations as churches, parachurch organisations and charities) who has risen to your position without formal qualifications in business management. While you may have an undergraduate degree in another field and/or have accrued considerable experience in one or more management position, the lack of formal qualifications and specialised theoretical knowledge can undermine your future career development and/or job security.

CHC recognises your experience and through the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) seeks to bridge the gap. The CHC MBA provides you with specialised theoretical knowledge and skills in management as well as the confidence to apply this knowledge in your actual or intended professional practice context. The units within the MBA present the relevance of theoretical knowledge and values-based literature to you today and enables you to expand influence and help them strategically grow their organisation.

360° Outcomes

CHC can play an important role in your personal growth and development. As you make a 2-year investment (over 12 study periods), you will grow and expand in your sphere of influence and the world around you will be transformed.
