THE EXECUTIVE MBA (EMBA) is an 18-month program designed to meet the needs of busy, working professionals who wish to pursue an EMBA degree without interrupting their careers. The program is unique in that it allows you to study at a pace that suits your career – forty-five percent of the program is offered through online lessons and real-world industry projects, minimizing your time away from work and family.
The remaining portion of the program is offered through face-to-face lessons at our four campuses. To enhance their global outlook and employability, it is required that students undertake at least one module outside of their home country.
PLEASE NOTE: This program is TEQSA-recognised and as a result, students graduate with an Australian degree. However, the program is not accredited or approved by AICTE or any regulatory body in India.

PHASE 1: Essentials of Management
PHASE 2: Practice of Management
PHASE 3: Cross-functional Management
PHASE 4: Applied Business Research
A unique feature of the EMBA program is the Applied Business Research Project undertaken by students within the context of their own organisations. The project is divided into two stages:
Stage 1: Design of a research proposal
In this stage, students are required to conduct extensive secondary research. They are actively involved in literature review as well as collecting data from journals, white papers, news articles and websites. Students are required to build a business case, define a business problem/opportunity and arrive at clear research objectives to meet the business challenge.
Research proposals are evaluated and approved by a panel comprising faculty and industry mentors, before progressing to stage two.
Stage 2: Undertaking research & making corporate recommendations
Students commence this stage by refining their research proposal and undertaking primary research. Each student carries out in-depth analysis using various research tools and techniques to arrive at strategic recommendations with managerial implications.
On completing their research, students present their findings to their organisations, resulting in greater recognition and success.
