Program structure

You must complete, or be exempted from completing, 192 credit points that equal 16 courses (12 credit points each). The program is structured in stages to enable you to:

  • gain a solid background in business
  • undertake coursework that introduces core aspects of business practice
  • combine core discipline knowledge with electives to consolidate the knowledge you have gained through your studies
  • showcase your emerging business expertise through the final two compulsory courses Applied Industry Practice and Business Operations.

Applied Industry Practice is a compulsory work-integrated learning course studied in the final stage of the program. This course together with Business Operations Strategy and Application, a compulsory capstone course, are undertaken at the end of the program because they bring focus to the range of activities and knowledge you have acquired, and allow you to showcase your emerging business expertise.

It is recommended that you follow the sequence of courses presented in the enrolment structure which is based on your accumulation of knowledge and skills. For example, courses in strategy development that require an understanding of business analysis, marketing and finance are scheduled after functional courses introducing these concepts so that you can draw upon these skills in creating strategy activities. Likewise, you will first learn about your own development, strengths and style as a manager or leader before moving to the critical issues involved in managing and leading others.
