Master of Management

Your management career starts here

The MGSM Master of Management has been developed specifically for recent graduates and early career professionals.

The program is delivered by the same highly qualified faculty as our MBA and is designed to provide deep experiential learning within contemporary business settings and practical application of learning to real and current corporate challenges.

Practical experience is further extended through the compulsory professional practice unit. This double unit provides the student with the opportunity to work on a project with a local or global organisation and in the process, develop the skills young professionals need in diverse, dynamic and challenging work environments.

Who is the Master of Management designed for? 

This program is designed for students who have recently graduated from an undergraduate degree from any disciplinary background and who are looking to build up their skills and experience for a career in business management or management consultancy.

Professional practice unit

Equivalent to two units of study, professional practice leverages MGSM's close links to business. Working with a leading Australian or multi-national company, you will gain exposure to business practices and professional skills needed on your path to future leadership roles.

Duration and time

The Master of Management can be undertaken over 2 years of full-time study at the pace of 2 units per term. Part-time study allows students to study at the pace of 1 unit (or more) per term. Completion time will be at the discretion of the student and availability.
