A high-quality MBA program is one of the most popular means to accelerate your career path, but how do you know you are choosing the right MBA program?
Not all institutions are equal, they have different priorities and values, and offer different levels of support and resources. Here at AIB, our number one priority is the needs of our students, so they can excel and achieve their career ambitions fast.
As an online-first provider, our program is intentionally developed around the online student. We offer a comprehensive curriculum and a wide range of tools to help you succeed from your very first day in the program to your last.
|THE AIB ONLINE MBA||TRADITIONAL MBAs|
|Practicality||Assessments based on your workplace or business give you tangible plans and strategies to implement.||Generally, a heavy focus on academic theory and case studies on other companies.|
|Flexibility||100% online learning allows you to study when and where you like, fitting seamlessly around your life.||Having to work your schedule around their program.|
|Support||Dedicated advisors at every point of your journey, including a Course Advisor, Enrolment Advisor, Academic Skills Advisor, Referencing and Library Support Team.||Generally impersonal student and academic support (some offer “email only” support).|
|Faculty||Highly qualified and experienced faculty with demonstrable industry success, plus industry guest speakers from learning global organisations.||Often career academics with limited practical experience.|
|Heritage||Almost 40 years of heritage in MBA education, with over 15 years of online experience building programs intentionally developed for the online student.||Most have resisted moving online and have simply transferred in-person elements online as a reaction to the pandemic.|
|Learning Resources||Subjects have carefully designed weekly online modules to work though, are regularly reviewed by the academic team and input from leading industry professionals to ensure real-world relevance, practicality and integrity.||Due to high levels of bureaucracy and less available support for enhancing subjects, it typically takes a lot longer to implement changes to coursework|

In the most recent 2021 Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) survey, over 80,000 postgraduate students rated the quality of their educational experience.
When compared to institutions across Australia, AIB outperformed the national average, not only in overall education experience but several other factors including learning resources, student support, skills development and teaching quality. With so many institutions to choose from, why choose anything less?
The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) are government-endorsed surveys for higher education, capturing the student life cycle from commencement to employment.
When compared to the postgraduate satisfaction of graduates from other universities and non-university higher education institutions in the Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS), the Australian Institute of Business proudly came out on top.

The Student Experience Survey (SES) is the only comprehensive survey of current higher education students in Australia. It focuses on aspects of the student experience that are measurable, linked with learning and development outcomes, and potentially able to be influenced by higher education institutions.
Based on 16,242 responses by postgraduate business and management students at 76 Australian universities and institutions, AIB outperformed the industry average across numerous student experience metrics.
