I highlighted the need to do an MBA for me now lets have a look at Why Australia?.
The Commonwealth of Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world (geographically), the only one to occupy an entire continent, and the largest in the region of Australasia.

There are forty-three Australian universities. They are both teaching and research institutions. A full range of academic and professional disciplines is offered with awards ranging from associate diploma to doctorate being offered.
Many universities have a multi-campus structure, with each campus specialising in a particular discipline. Regional universities, some offering specialised courses, provide a full tertiary experience with students residing on campus and participating in local activities.
The standard, design and diversity of education offered by Australian universities are among the most effective in the world. On average, an undergraduate degree lasts from between three up to six years for a double degree with honours. [IMMI]
It is estimated that over 180,000 students from about 140 countries chose

Distinguishing Australia from many other countries is the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The AQF is a national system of learning pathways covering 12 different qualifications and linking universities, vocational education and training, and school education.
The AQF allows students to move easily from one level of study to the next and from one institution to another as long as they satisfy student visa requirements. Recognition of prior learning (RPL) enables students to receive credit toward a qualification for knowledge and skills gained through previous study, training, work and life experience. Even if students partially complete an AQF qualification they are issued with a Statement of Attainment.
Once the status of existing qualifications is established the AQF means students can choose from appropriate level courses anywhere in
Why study an MBA in
There are two fundamental reasons for studying an MBA in
To appreciate the significance of the first point, it is necessary to explore briefly the meaning of the term 'good MBA'. At one extreme, it is possible in some countries to acquire an 'MBA' certificate through the mail by spending a few hundred dollars. Such 'MBAs' are obviously not worth the paper they are written on, and any employer duped into hiring such a person would soon learn their mistake and act accordingly. At the other end of the spectrum are MBAs acquired on the basis of diligent study and participation over a period of at least 16 months, within a rich learning environment at an internationally-recognised management school within a prestigious university. The difference between these two experiences lies in the changes that they effect within the student.
A good MBA will develop the individual significantly, including their capacity to work as an effective team member, to lead others, and to be effective in interpersonal relationships through enhanced self-confidence, communication, presentation and negotiation skills. In addition, his or her capacity to diagnose the changes required to achieve business success and the power to implement these changes will be increased dramatically. By contrast, a poor MBA will effect none of these changes within the individual, and thus individual performance will be poor.
Australian MBA Programs
Particularly within its capital cities,
Currently, a total of 55 Australian universities offer MBA programs. The prevailing model at the better institutions is the 'Harvard style' MBA, which provides around 16 diverse business related subjects, delivered over a period of 16 months to 2 years of full-time study. The shorter (16 month) program is delivered by institutions who have adopted the trimester system as a means to reduce the opportunity cost of an MBA to its students. Students may also study part-time, and most choose to do so. [Transworldeducation]
