Deakin masterclasses build to MBA

Deakin U is getting into the micro-courses market, but to protect, not replace its MBA. The university is offering 12-hour “masterclasses” which students can stack to makes the equivalent of two electives in the 12-unit MBA. This can deliver a discount on the course cost (sneer not, MIT is doing it) with four short courses costing $6000 compared to $8430 for two electives. But the big benefits are that Deakin can bring MCs to market faster than a conventional subject and that they are new content, not just existing subjects stripped down.  Five subjects will be available this year, with more to come.
