Balancing work and a Master of Business Administration (MBA)


Dale already had a great job as a National Sales Manager at a sales and marketing company but wanted to give his career a boost with a postgraduate course. He decided to study a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with Swinburne Online so that he could upskill while continuing to work on growing his clients’ brands.

As soon as he started his course, Dale found that he was learning about subjects that related directly to his work and was able to apply his new skills to his current role.

I’ve found that it’s really easy to take some of the coursework and apply it straight to what I’m currently working on at the moment.

Studying online also allowed Dale to learn from anywhere, meaning that he could travel for work and study at the same time. He found that by scheduling study in a couple of nights per week, and on the weekend, he was able to design a schedule that worked for him.

The online study model really fit in well for me because I can do it in my own time, and at my own pace.

Dale is now on track to achieve his goal of completing an MBA without having to put his career on hold. He would recommend an online MBA to anyone looking for an option that fits into their busy lifestyle.

I would say to someone that’s considering studying an MBA online that it’s a great choice. It’s a really convenient way to manage your studies and your work, and your personal life all in one.
