INTI – Southern Cross University MBA for the Working Professional

December 13, 2011

Full-time working professionals seeking a specially designed international master’s degree without leaving the country – or their jobs – will find the ideal option at INTI College Sarawak.


The Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme at INTI College Sarawak which is offered in collaboration with Southern Cross University, Australia has long been the programme of choice for many working adults and graduates seeking a postgraduate degree that offers valuable insights into real-world business management.

Dr. Jun Xu from the Southern Cross Business School is among the regular visiting lecturers from Southern Cross University, Australia.

“The programme provides students with relevant business and management knowledge, allowing them to build on their existing skills and learn to solve complex business issues by enhancing their problem solving and communication skills through practical assessment activities. From the wide selection of subjects, students can tailor their MBA studies to fit their specific needs, thereby ensuring relevance to professional goals,” said Desmond Sateng, Head of the School of Business cum Head of the Postgraduate Centre at INTI College Sarawak.


The flexibility of the programme allows professionals to select elective modules which would facilitate the immediate application of knowledge and skills in their respective areas of work. To suit the needs of working adults, classes are held in the evening (on weekdays) and during the weekends.


Delivered by highly qualified staff who possess academic and industry relevant qualifications, the programme also has lecturers from Southern Cross University visiting INTI College Sarawak regularly to conduct workshops for MBA students.


Prior to completing the full MBA programme, students who complete four modules will be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration from Southern Cross University. On completion of eight modules, students will be awarded the Graduate Diploma in Business Administration.


Over the years, Southern Cross University has been ranked consistently as a Top University by employers in Australia. Hobsons’ The Good Universities Guide to MBA and Management Courses 2011 has awarded Southern Cross University’s MBA and Management courses a maximum of five stars for Getting a Job and four stars for Graduate Salary.


The entry requirements for the MBA programme are a degree equivalent to an Australian Bachelor’s degree and at least one year of relevant professional work experience. Advanced standing may be granted where a candidate has successfully completed units from previous postgraduate-level studies and which are substantially equivalent in content, standard and duration to units offered in the INTI – Southern Cross University MBA programme.
