Gain a data-driven global perspective for a real business edge
The interconnectedness of today’s economy means that all businesses need to think globally, even if they only act locally. This increasingly complex and interconnected global marketplace presents challenges and opportunities for all business leaders.
Whether it’s the US-China trade relationship impacting trade, a leadership model that’s proven to be successful for tech startups in India, a natural disaster that’s shut-down half a country, or a new programme that creates more simple visualisations of your customer data - understanding the opportunities they present to your business context is essential. Knowing how to use data to support strategies to leverage these opportunities, and having strong leadership and management skills to lead through the uncertainty, is what will give you the real edge.
JCU Online’s MBA Global gives you a data-driven approach to analyse these global shifts and identify which opportunities will deliver the greatest outcome for your business. You will also develop your leadership and management skills so you can continue to lead through uncertainty, adapt, and keep pace.

Andrew Siu | Master of Business Administration Global
“Given my experience of working with other cultures, I was particularly drawn to the MBA Global and its focus on cultural intelligence and thinking globally about business rather than just the country you reside in. I feel more empowered to be able to curate effective data-driven strategies that drive business innovation that aligns with organisational objectives.
I am certain that without my MBA Global I would not have been fortunate enough to be appointed as CEO of YourHealth+.
