From 2012 the postgraduate Business Management courses are available only to existing students. No new applications will be processed and only students already admitted will be able to complete the award.
Monash University has introduced a new postgraduate Master of Management course to replace the Business Management course.
The Master of Management is directed toward the development of management capabilities in the context of changing and dynamic organisational environments and is designed to provide students with a comprehensive, intellectually demanding and up-to-date understanding of management concepts and practice.
The Master of Business Management course focuses on the application of theory into business contexts relevant to practising professionals. The course covers contemporary issues relevant to practitioners operating in a local, national or international organisational environment.
Students can study towards a range of qualifications. Master of Business Management students can exit the course after four units and receive the award of Graduate Certificate or after eight units for the Graduate Diploma in Business Management. Applicants without undergraduate academic qualifications may be eligible for entry to the Executive Certificate in Business.
The Master of Business Management aims to produce graduates who will:
(a.) be critical and creative scholars who:
- produce innovative solutions to problems
- apply research skills to business challenges
- communicate effectively and perceptively
(b.) be responsible and effective global citizens who:
- engage in an internationalised world
- exhibit cross cultural competence
- demonstrate ethical values
(c.) have a comprehensive understanding of their discipline and be able to provide discipline based solutions relevant to the business, professional and public policy communities we serve
(d.) have advanced knowledge to masters level in contemporary management theory and, be able to apply this to a range of organisational settings within their own workplace, through reflective and innovative approaches to business practice.
