Gosnells, Western Australia, Oct. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
With Australian unemployment rates at their lowest levels in half a century, ECU’s accelerated online Master of Business Administration (MBA) offers the chance to boost career progression without taking any time off work.
In fact, students who have a bachelor degree in Business or Commerce plus at least three years of relevant management experience, can achieve their MBA degree even faster with recognition of prior learning reducing the 12-unit course down to 9 units.
Emphasising transformational strategies and human-focused leadership skills, ECU’s MBA online will have a ripple effect on the business world with graduates improving outcomes for the business practice of teams and the strategy of organisations.
Already the business environment in Australia is embracing change, with 80 per cent of leaders in business management planning or undertaking a digital transformation in the next year. These businesses are looking to strategic management to create an empowered and connected workforce with digital agility, digitally aligned ESG and improved cyber security.
ECU’s online MBA program focuses on one unit at a time, so students can immerse themselves in their study while still being able to make time for their other commitments, like work and family. In seven-week Study Periods, students will learn to engage, support and empower individuals while building high-performance teams and achieving organisational objectives.
This flexible form of postgraduate study can be tailored to students’ careers and help them prepare for the future with specialisations in People and Culture, Project Management and Human Resource Management.
It’s also possible to take electives from all three specialisations as well as more diverse fields including digital marketing, finance, cyber security and more.
The 100% online MBA delivers the same quality of learning experience and education outcomes that would be expected from studying on-campus. With an intuitive, immersive and easy to use online learning environment, networking opportunities are increased with the chance to connect with students from all over the country.
ECU’s School of Business and Law is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – accreditation held by less than 6 per cent of the world’s schools offering business degree programs. In addition, ECU has been ranked number one for quality in The Australian Financial Review BOSS Best Business Schools list. ECU is also home to its strategic research centre, the Centre for Work + Wellbeing. The Centre collaborates on studies with public and private partners, to produce impactful research that advances wellbeing in organisations, the community, and individuals.
The world-class team of academics in ECU’s business school includes Associate Professor Ben Farr-Wharton, who said “MBA [students] learn the technical vocabulary of business. They also learn new methodologies for solving critical problems and the skills to identify and respond to opportunities others may have missed.”
ECU’s Student Success Advisors are available to MBA students to help them make the most of the study options, the online learning platform and more. A dedicated Student Success Advisor supports each student with non-academic enquiries from enrolment, right through to graduation.
Part of the online MBA’s flexibility of study is an alternative pathway into the MBA course through the Graduate Certificate of Business Administration. Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree or don’t want to commit to an MBA straight away can enroll in the graduate certificate, after which they can continue their studies and advance their expertise by gaining their MBA at a time that suits them.
A tight employment market presents opportunities to upgrade careers. With the flexibility of a 100% online MBA, one can tailor study to their busy schedule to supercharge one’s professional trajectory.
And with six different intakes throughout the year, that next step on one’s career ladder could be closer than previously thought.
Learn today, lead tomorrow with ECU’s 100% online Master of Business Administration.

The billionaire entrepreneur fears that the economic downturn will become worse if this decision is made.
JPMorgan Chase says ongoing inflation and an outlook for sharply lower returns for investors means that retirees should toss the long-standing 4% rule.

Cathie Wood makes big bets on potential huge winners. But Ark Invest's top 10 holdings, including Tesla and Roku, have tumbled in 2022.
First, develop a plan (some might call it a budget), said Robert Gilliland, managing director and senior wealth adviser at Concenture Wealth Management. Take into consideration every single possible expense you anticipate after your husband dies, and account for inflation as well. You can break these expenses down into the short term, such as one to five years, the intermediate term, which would be the six- to 10-year span, and the long term, or beyond 10 years.
A bull market will eventually replace this bear market. While it's a fool's errand to try to time the market, it's still a good idea to prepare for the next upswing by owning stocks that are well-positioned to benefit from a shift in market sentiment and a macroeconomic tailwind. Below are three top stocks that look ready to soar in the next bull market, and I'd feel comfortable owning any of them in an extended bear market as well.
With some CDs and online savings accounts offering the best yields in a decade, now is the time to be strategic with your savings.
Time flies. But it also crashes.
At first glance, Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) might seem like a reliable long-term investment. If you had invested $3,000 into Intel's rival Advanced Micro Devices instead, your investment would be worth roughly $78,000. A $3,000 investment in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM), Intel's top competitor in the foundry market, would also have blossomed into nearly $11,000.
Few companies will have the longevity to deliver strong returns for decades, but these three could be among them.
Nio (NYSE: NIO) pleased investors with its forward projections when it reported third-quarter earnings a month ago. When Nio announced its quarterly results on Nov. 10, it told investors vehicle deliveries increased almost 30% year over year. Today, Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) said it also expects to deliver up to 48,000 EVs in its fourth quarter.
Many experts have a bleak forecast for the stock market early next year. "These types of companies have more resilience in the face of economic uncertainty than companies that don't have significant competitive advantages," Morningstar investment specialist Susan Dziubinski wrote in a commentary. "Given their prices and economic vulnerability, we think these stocks are ones to cut loose going into the new year."
Holding a stock forever may seem crazy, but it's the right way to think about investing in dividend stocks. Companies that generate increasing amounts of cash and return that cash to shareholders can drive a market-beating portfolio, and Travis Hoium highlights four of his buy-and-hold dividend stocks in the video below.

Axsome Therapeutics (NASDAQ: AXSM) has absolutely sizzled this year. The biotech stock has more than doubled, with most of the gain coming in just the last couple of months. It should file for FDA approvals of AXS-07 in treating migraine and AXS-14 in treating fibromyalgia next year as well.
Consensus for early in the year points to recession-related weakness in earnings and this likely portends choppy equities. Mike Wilson from Morgan Stanley and David Kostin of Goldman Sachs, in fact, predict the S&P 500 will drop to 3600 or lower in the first half of the year, followed by a second-half rebound. Mike Wilson's record on market direction has been remarkably prescient in recent years; his calls shape the current Wall Street consensus as other strategists follow his market outlook.
Investors who bet on a decline in the electric vehicle maker's stock price in the short term have won the jackpot.

ACE-Breast-03 is a Phase 2 study of ARX788 for patients whose metastatic disease is resistant or refractory to T-DXd, T-DM1, or tucatinib-containing regimens. Related: Ambrx Bi
Since each of the three major U.S. stock indexes hit their record highs between mid-November 2021 and the first week of January 2022, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen 22% and the S&P 500 is down 28%. The tech-dependent Nasdaq Composite has taken the brunt of the pain, down 38%. Although we'll never know when a bear market will begin, how long it'll last, or how steep the decline will be, we do know that every bear market, crash, and correction throughout history (save for the current bear market) was eventually erased by a bull market.
