How good is an MBA from australia ?

I would like to know about the pros and cons of an MBA from Australia for an international student. I am an Indian and would want to recover my investment by working in Australia post studies for at least a couple of years. How feasible is it ? what all things should i keep in mind. How viable is it to get placed in Australia for an international student after an MBA from UTS or LA Throbe.

UTS and La Trobe is one of (only) 43 universities in Australia. All of them are fully accredited and they are tightly controlled, therefore the quality and recognition of their graduates are equal from wherever university you are studying from. The most important thing is you have to READ the course information carefully, since some courses may have the same name but different content. MBA course is offered by most universities in Australia.

UTS is located right-smack in the middle of Sydney’s CBD, the biggest city in Australia. It feels like working in the city. La Trobe in located in the outer suburban of Melbourne, the 2nd biggest city in Australia. The campus is big and green (big lawns and gardens) with lots of student services located right on-campus.

To be eligible for a Masters course in Australia, you will need to have the degree that deemed as equivalent to Australian Bachelor Degree. You will need to fill in the application form and send them together with the certified copy of all of your academic transcripts. If they cannot accept you for the Masters course, they may offer you a place in their Bachelor degree course with credit transfer, so you do not have to study from year 1 again.

Now… depending on your background, I am not sure that MBA is a suitable course for you. First of all, you may have just completed your bachelor study, and most MBA course requires minimum of 2 years work experience in managerial level.

Second, you may have done a business course. MBA is actually created for ppl who do not have business background (eg, Engineer or Lawyers) but already got the work experience in managerial level. MBA course basically a fast-track business course where the students got the business course for abt 1-1.5yrs that usually given to undergraduate students for 3 yrs. MBA course is also a place where those managers exchanges ideas and experiences in real-life case studies. Therefore students who do not have work experiences before sometimes feel singled-out.

If you have business background, you might consider a specialisation course, eg. Master in Accounting/Marketing. So this is to ‘deepen’ your knowledge.

Abt work… how’s your work experience? If you have got a Masters degree, then you are applying for work in managerial position. However you can imagine that the employers may hesitate giving such high position responsibility & salary for someone who has not got the right work experience. Apart from that, the activities that you do during your study may also give more credibility to your resume (eg. President of the Student Club).

Hope this helps. Good luck on your study and welcome to Australia 🙂

Universities offer references. Not direct placement assistances.

You can work for 18 months after study very easily(there still are visa formalities you have to do). Working beyond that needs some kind of visa extension or so(which takes a bit more work).

These are what I heard from IDP in Bangalore. Visit them. They don’t charge fees and are very friendly when it comes to counselling.

You will get almost no financial aid for postgraduate by coursework. MBA and MIT falls under this. So you will have to bear your own expenses.

Besides, MBA or any other course is only as good as you can make use of it. So you are the best one to answer this question for yourself.

first it is really expensive. Second all international students can apply for permanent residency but they need a credit average and other requirements.

I think its ok at UTS. Tried University of sydney?
