Master of Management
Businesses are constantly adapting to meet the challenges of a modern economy. Our Master of Management is designed to make you a manager who can lead expansion and change within an organisation. As the course is open to students from a range of backgrounds, you'll be studying in a multidisciplinary environment, where you'll be exposed to a broad exchange of ideas.
In your first year you'll learn foundational knowledge from the fields of economics, finance, accounting, management theory and marketing principles over eight core subjects. In your second year, you'll develop knowledge in specialised areas of management, and pursue your interests and career aspirations through a range of electives.

Our teachers are seasoned professionals with years of industry experience. You'll also gain practical insights from business leaders through regular guest lectures.
The course is studied for two years full-time during the day and in the evening at our Melbourne and City campuses. We offer a flexible timetable that allows you to balance your study with other commitments. All core subjects are available as evening classes. If you have demonstrated prior learning you may be able to get advanced standing (credit) for the first semester. This will reduce the length of the course to 1.5 years.
Whether you're a current manager, or seeking to accelerate your career, our management courses will prepare you for leadership roles in your area of expertise.
