... although the best schools will be more stingy with their money (generally speaking). If you think of an MBA more as an investment than a cost, it makes sense. (you pay for what you get..)

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I need an MBA in Australia that would provide a scholarship for the complete tuition fee (or most of the tuition fee). Thank you.

If they do, either you're an amazing applicant (1 in 100 kind of applicant), or you can get into a better school and have much better career growth.

Well, I believe I am a 1 in 100 applicant!

Seriously though, what about budget programs in Australia?

What do you guys think of Deakin?

It would be good to know more about your goals - what do you hope to get out of an MBA? Do you already have residency in Australia?

Hello and sorry for the late reply!

I would like to gain some leadership skills and help me progress up the ladder in my current field, which is information technology. But more importantly I would like to use the MBA to be able to live and work in Australia. No I do not have permanent residency there.

An MBA from a school like MGSM would probably be better in most respects.

Deakin would be a more affordable and less competitive option, but probably have less substantial career potential. Check with the school and ask about how successful it is in assisting this kind of transition.

It is AACSB accredited and its International MBA program is 24 months long, which would help with the post-study visa issues - these are good aspects.

Thanks for clarifying that. Do you think MGSM gives many scholarships?

Probably no more than any similarly ranked school. From their website, it looks like they give awards of up to 25% of the MBA tuition fees for strong applicants. Doesn't say how many of these awards they give out though.

They also have awards for women and MBAs interested in finance.
