Why study the Master of Business?

The Master of Business is designed for people aspiring to management roles, for current managers seeking formal qualifications and for those changing career direction. This program will help you to further develop your business skills, build specialist knowledge within your chosen area and accelerate your career.

The Master of Business program offers two different entry points depending on your previous studies. The Master (1.5 years) is designed for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree in the same discipline. The Master (2 years) includes the core fundamentals of general management for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree from any discipline. Both Masters provide an opportunity to specialise in up to two fields of study or additional research electives (which may provide a pathway to research higher degree programs). Each specialised field of study will equip you with the relevant knowledge to jumpstart or advance your chosen profession.

You can choose to specialise in the areas of advertising, human resource management, innovation and entrepreneurship, international business, leadership, marketing, or social impact and sustainability.
