Our dedicated team of Student Advisors will support you throughout your studies. The

The MBA (Medical Technology & Pharmaceuticals) students can set the pace and style of their learning and choose to take courses that can be delivered either online or through weekly evening or weekend intensive classes.
Whether you are completing a class in person or in a virtual environment through the intuitive, communication tool: Moodle, the emphasis will be on sharing knowledge and skills. Online classes do not require facilitators and participants to be online at the same time - it is asynchronous, enabling you to contribute to discussions at a time that best suites you.
AGSM @ UNSW Business School becomes your 'mobile campus'; take your course materials with you on business trips and continue to participate online. Class facilitators manage the discussion and assess your participation throughout the course.
For each course, you will be allocated to a class cohort with about 30 to 35 co-participants and a class facilitator. Group discussions, either online or face-to-face, ensures a sharing of knowledge with fellow students with diverse backgrounds and experience levels, and enable you to connect with the program facilitators.
Your class facilitator will lead and guide interaction and participation in the online classroom environment.
Interactive learning areas
You can log into your online class at any time during the week, day or night, to contribute to set learning activities. In an MBA (Technology) online class there are four main locations:
announcements where facilitators post notices to the class
forums where facilitators conduct the formal teaching and learning activities in a class
coffee shop where informal discussions among members of the class take place
student profile where each member of the class can introduce themselves and upload a photo
In some cases, certain MBA (Medical Technology & Pharmaceuticals) courses will be available in face-to-face mode at a UNSW campus, with course selection alternating each session. Both class delivery options are based on the same course material content, and students who undertake face-to-face classes will access our online tool Moodle to download their course materials.
The course materials are the starting point of your weekly studies. MBA (Medical Technology & Pharmaceuticals) course materials are divided into 12 units, one per each teaching week, and include the core concepts, activities for reflection, set readings, reference lists of further readings and detailed information regarding assessment.
It is expected that all participants will have read the week's unit prior to attending class or participating in online class discussion. Course materials are available in three different formats:
- A PDF via Moodle 4 weeks prior to the commencement of class (typically in the week enrolments close)
- Approximately one week before classes commence, course materials are available in separate units and you should expect to receive an email from your facilitator in this period
- For those who prefer a hardcopy, the
printed course materials may be purchased from the UNSW Bookshop at cost price plus delivery
Many courses also have prescribed textbooks which may be ordered online from the UNSW Bookshop. All participants have access to the vast online resources of the UNSW library, and borrowing rights at your local academic library can usually be arranged.
