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 is undertaken over 2 years of full-time study at the pace of 2 units per term. Students who possess an undergraduate degree in business related areas may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning for up to 4 units enabling completion of the program over 18 months of full-time study.

Each course unit involves 40 hours of face-to-face lectures, and an additional workload of up to 140 hours over the 10-week term. Students spend this time preparing for lectures, projects, presentations and exams, as well as completing individual and group assignments.
