Course outline



This internationally-focused two-year master degree is ideal if you are looking to move into a new career in business. You’ll choose a business discipline to suit your interests and gain knowledge of practices, principle and concepts in that area. During the course, you’ll undertake practical learning experiences that give you the ability to solve complex business problems. You’ll also gain knowledge and research skills that you can apply to your particular industry.

Towards the end of your course, you’ll complete a capstone experience. Your capstone may include an internship, consultancy experience, research project or global experience that will grow your network, business acumen and skill sets. 

The advanced accounting major is suitable if you have previously completed an undergraduate accounting degree recognised by CPA Australia and want to extend your knowledge. All other disciplines can be studied without having a prior qualification in business or commerce.

If you have a relevant bachelor degree, you may be exempt from studying the foundation units and be able to complete this course after 1.5 years full-time study. If you have a bachelor degree, plus five years relevant work experience, you may be able to complete this course after one year.
