Wanting to do an MBA in Australia


Hello All,

Happy new year!

I would like to pursue an MBA in Health Care either from Deakin or Latrobe University. The MBA needs to be fulltime based on campus and duration more than 20 months as I would like to get PR after completion of the MBA.

My background, I have an integrated BSc and Masters in Medicinal Chemistry and a PhD in Pharmacy. I also have worked in the pharmaceutical industry in regulatory affairs for over 5 years. I have based in the UK and UK passport holder. I also have over 5 journal articles in high impact pharmaceutical journals from my scientific contributions.

I would like to pursue an MBA as my future goal is to work in senior management defining policies, medicinal health care strategies etc. I am hoping when I finish my MBA in Australia I can get a PR and either work in a healthcare or pharmaceutical sector.

My question is that Deakin or Latrobe University are not in the FT ranking, although they have AACSB, AMBA and/or EQUIS accreditation. Would this impact my job prospects in Australia or obtaining a PR after completion of my studies?

Furthermore, I do not want to do a conventional MBA, specifically looking to do an MBA in healthcare. In some countries like US or UK these are not offered, does anyone know why this is?

I have a passion for healthcare and pharmaceuticals and want to stay in this field.

Is there a reason both Deakin or Latrobe University refer to the MBA in health care as a dual degree?

Any other advice would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance for your help.
