  • Entry requirements

    No Bachelor’s degree? You could still be eligible for entry into the MBA through your relevant work experience. To gain entry into the Master of Business Administration, you need:

    • a three-year bachelor’s degree from any Australian university, OR
    • professional experience regarded by SCU as equivalent to a degree, AND
    • to be proficient in English.
  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

    SCU Online recognises advanced standing towards units of your MBA, meaning you can finish sooner. The number of units can vary based on your previous qualifications and work experience. If you’re unsure if your experience is valid, please get in touch with us to have a Student Enrolment Advisor assist you.

  • Fees and FEE-HELP

    The total cost of the degree will depend on whether you end up completing the full MBA (which includes 16 units) and whether you are eligible for advanced standing.

    The government loan scheme that applies to most postgraduate courses is known as FEE-HELP. Australian citizens and holders of a Permanent Humanitarian visa who are residing within Australia are eligible to access FEE-HELP. Using this program, you can borrow enough money from the Commonwealth Government to cover your course fees. Once your income reaches a certain level, you will pay the loan back via the tax system.

What our students say

Completing my MBA online merged very well with my busy work life, as I accept job contracts across Australia. I remember having a holiday in the Philippines, and yet I was able to complete my required submissions (even during a storm!)
