Staff discount to enrol for business courses

Generous discounts for Flinders University staff and domestic alumni to gain a Master of Business Administration (MBA) are still on offer, for studies to commence during this semester or later in the year.

Flinders’ all-new MBA, as well as Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate of Business studies, get underway this semester with opportunities for staff and alumni residing in Australia to respectively apply for 30% and 20% reductions. The same terms and conditions also apply for further intakes this year, in July and October.

Dr Shervin Shokri, previously an academic staff member in biological sciences and now an adviser with International Student Services at Flinders University, has taken advantage of the special offer to commence the two-year MBA course with a specialisation in Health.

“As a mature-age student who is returning to studies, I’m not afraid of the potential challenges. I plan to use my experiences, especially my time management skills, to enjoy studying while working full-time,” says Dr Shokri.

“I believe I have been given an opportunity to strengthen my identity and become a pivotal part of the fearless future industry workforce.

“The flexibility to select a variety of topics and the opportunity to experience a new industry excites me and satisfies my lifelong learning interests.”

Enrolments for these Business studies offers close on March 2 for the current study period, and there are two more start dates this year: July 4 or October 3.

Flinders University MBA director Carla Dias Wadewitz says: We are preparing graduates which are developing Industry 4.0 and 5.0 skills with a goal of making more efficient and long- term sustainable business decisions for our society, which is what most employers are looking for these days.”

The courses will also be practising innovation skills which are critical to industry through the Flinders MBA industry entrepreneurial programs. These include:

  • Defence Entrepreneurship Program
  • Advanced Manufacturing Entrepreneurship Program
  • Wine and Tourism Entrepreneurship Program

“Next year, we will also launch the Health, Green Economy and Fintech Entrepreneurship Programs,” says Ms Wadewitz.

“Students will work in collaboration with key industry partners. We are committed to support our graduates to develop innovative solutions to improve the lives of Australians and the world.
