Flexibility and timetables

The La Trobe MBA gives you superb flexibility to choose how, when, and where to study.

Flexible study options

You can choose all your classes face-to-face, fully online, or switch between face-to-face and online classes as it suits your schedule. Many subjects are also offered in block mode, allowing you to complete most of your in-class studying over one or two weekends.

Want to accelerate your program? We can cater to that as well. You can complete your La Trobe MBA program in as little as 12 months when you undertake all, or the majority of, your subjects online.

Your online study is facilitated by academic and industry experts.

In some online subjects, you may have the option to join in a face-to-face class if it suits your schedule.

The course includes core subjects and electives. You’ll also complete a career development portfolio.
