Determine the right career development journey for you, whether it be a full-time, part-time, specialised online study or a transitional short-course pathway.

The MBA (Social Impact) is offered as part of the MBAX program. MBAX offers you the option to specialise your MBA.

Understand the dynamics of the social economy, and how business, social enterprise, government, foundations and community organisations can work together for positive social change.

The AGSM MBAX is a unique part-time fully flexible MBA that can be done entirely online, or you have the option to personalise your study experience by opting to attend face-to-face courses, or you can choose to study in a combination of these delivery modes.

AGSM’s MBAX program is ranked 1st in Australia and ranked #4 online MBA in the world according to the QS 2024 Global Online MBA Rankings.

AGSM ranks well above the global average Employability, where our score of 81.8 was 34.2 points ahead of the global average, based on over 38,000 employers who were interviewed as part of these rankings’ surveys. AGSM was ranked second in the world for its ESG ranking among the top Online MBAs. It also ranked joint first place for Women on Board (50 per cent), second place for Female Students (40 per cent) and ranked third in the world for Women Faculty (41 per cent).

This reflects not just the quality of students we attract but also the significant investment we have made in career services across AGSM. An AGSM MBAX graduate doesn't just walk away with a reputable qualification, but with the skills needed to accelerate their career, change industries or start a new enterprise.
