Flexible study modes
Most topics are available in internal mode (ie face-to-face), with many also available online. Depending on the topics you choose, you can complete the graduate certificate, graduate diploma and master’s completely online or take a mix of online and face-to-face classes to fit your study and life commitments. Selected face-to-face topics are offered in intensive mode for added convenience.

Small class sizes ensure that you can engage with lecturers and tutors while getting to know your fellow students, with the opportunity to develop life-long friends and professional acquaintances through teamwork and interaction. Our online content gives you access to interactive activities, online group discussions and a capstone strategic business project.

“I chose to study my MBA at Flinders University as it allowed me to finish the degree fast; I completed my course in one year, which is unusual for most MBA programs. What I enjoyed most about studying at Flinders was the ability to engage with the professors and lecturers around real-world business problems and learn from case studies not only from the Adelaide market but also overseas. I made a lot of connections with other international students and gained valuable mentoring from the teaching staff.”
