If you have earned the SCMP designation and a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Management, or similar business degree, you can finish your AU online MBA for executives in as little as 17 months.

This accelerated route to your online MBA acknowledges that the academic knowledge you acquired in your undergraduate studies—in combination with your supply chain management knowledge and the experience you have gained in the workplace since graduating—provides a solid base from which to advance into senior management study and practice.

The accelerated online MBA route gives you the flexibility to tailor your master’s studies to your own interests and career goals. Once you have completed two mandatory online courses, you can design the rest of your program using a combination of online and in-residence electives, international electives and, if you choose, a major research project.

Extra Transfer Credit & Time Reduction

If you are accepted into the online MBA program via the accelerated entry route and hold an SCMP designation, you will realize most of your benefits from the accelerated route itself which reduces overall online MBA completion requirements from the standard 48 credits.

You will also receive additional transfer credit for one, three credit online elective course, meaning you will be able to complete your program even quicker and be required to complete a total of 27 credits.

Supply chain management professionals receive a further reduction in the accelerated online MBA route tuition as a result of three (3) transfer credits granted for one elective course.

The following fee charts are examples of payment schedules, illustrating the two possible online MBA completion paths (applied project vs. course based). In both examples, the student has chosen just one in-residence elective.

Tuition fees include textbooks and our learning environment software, but do not include Microsoft Suite (Word, Excel and PowerPoint are required), internet charges, Graduate Student Association fees ($13 per credit), and some travel and accommodation costs associated with in residence electives. Students are provided a detailed payment schedule upon acceptance into the program; fees are subject to change.
