Flexible learning formats

The MBA is offered in two formats – Blended Learning and Modular. Both formats are perfect for studying while you work, and each offers its own immersive and unique learning experience. The Blended Learning format allows for the flexibility of digital class attendance, minimising time away from work. The Modular format provides a focused in-class experience with zero interruptions.


Choose to start with either the Modular MBA (blocks of classes spread over the year) or Blended Learning MBA (orientation block plus weekly classes online or on campus).


During your specialisation year, you attend one on-campus block at the beginning of the year, followed by Blended Learning classes one afternoon a week, and one on-campus electives block towards the end of the year.
