Master of Business Management

Broaden your career options with a Master of Business Management (MBM). Our MBM is a generalist taught Master's that will equip you with key skills and expertise from multiple core business functions to give you increased commercial intelligence and oversight capability.

The MBM programme offers graduates and professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds the opportunity to gain essential competencies and knowledge for successful management within our global economy.

The MBM programme will allow you to gain traction across a wide variety of industries. By gaining an MBM you can expect to:

  • Be prepared for entry level commercial roles within the public and private sector including business analyst, project manager and management consultant.
  • Find management roles in areas reflective of your undergraduate studies or areas of previous employment.

Our MBM programme is ideal for recent graduates who are looking to increase their employability. It is also an excellent choice for professionals seeking to expand their skillset to complement a new, current or future role. MBM participants are typically:

  • Graduates from a non-commerce undergraduate discipline, and
  • Professionals in entry to mid-level roles from organisations of any size and sector.

Multiple entry qualifications offer you a number of study options depending on your professional career goals.*

1. Postgraduate Diploma in Business (PGDipBus)

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business consists of eight courses. These eight courses constitute the core courses for the MBM programme. The diploma takes eight months to complete full-time or can be completed in up to four years part-time.

Having satisfied all requirements for the Postgraduate Diploma with a B average or above, prior to graduating, you can apply to transfer to the MBM.

Duration: Part-time up to 4 years and at full-time study, it will take 8 months.

2. Master of Business Management (MBM)

In addition to the course requirements for the postgraduate diploma, by completing a further course and the capstone project or internship, you can graduate with the full MBM. The MBM takes 12 to 14 months to complete full-time.

The MBM gives you the flexibility to undertake additional study in either strategy or business development and entrepreneurship. Your project or internship can be undertaken with an industry or organisation that is of interest to you. However, you will be required to achieve at least a B average in all courses before being granted entry to the project or internship. Students who do not meet these criteria may apply to withdraw from the MBM programme and graduate with the diploma.

Durations: Part-time up to 4 years and at full-time time study it will take 12-14 months.

*In consultation, a personal course of study that differs from that outlined above can be completed, subject to the approval of the Dean of Commerce.
