Is It For You?

A combined Masters Program in Human Resource Management and Business Administration will enhance your professional standing as a specialist and a generalist, with the added advantage of allowing you to complete the program in less time than it would take to complete these two degrees individually.

The MBA focuses on developing a higher level of understanding of the fundamental building blocks of organizational management; managerial decision making, marketing, organizational behavior, accounting and finance, and strategic management.

The Master of HRM program focuses on developing professional skills for people working as advisors to and advocates for, as well as managers of, people. In these roles, HRM and ER professionals must be able to put a strong and reasoned argument for a particular way forward, based on a deep understanding of relevant HRM and ER theory as well as a practical understanding of workplace problems and their context. The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach used in this program builds confidence and competence in effective management of people, and will prepare you well for a senior management/leadership role, specialist HR role, or consulting career.

This combined postgraduate qualification can be the key to your future career success, building significantly on your formal qualifications and advancing your career.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is an internationally recognised and prestigious qualification, which can significantly increase your professional value and employability.

With your superior leadership capabilities, business management understanding and chosen human resource specialisation, you will be able to make an unusual and valuable contribution to many organisations.

With a combined Masters in Business Administration and Human Resource Management you can leverage your existing experience with enhanced skills and knowledge to gain control of your future.

Description

This combined degree program allows students to undertake studies in the more general business disciplines of the Master of Business Administration while also studying the specific Human Resources Management courses of the Master of Human Resource Management.

The Master of Business Administration program is designed to provide students with a range of analytic, strategic and leadership skills which will prepare them for increasingly competitive careers in business management in the corporate and public sectors. The program offers a grounding in fundamental business areas such as accounting, finance, organisational behaviour, economics, marketing and management. Analytic and problem solving skills are emphasised through an applied understanding of the theoretical framework within which today’s managers must operate, as well as the acquisition of practical skills in teamwork, writing, presentation and time-management. The ability to cope with rapid organisational and technological change is developed through an understanding of organisational behaviour, information systems and organisational change and development.

The Master of Human Resource Management program is designed for students with little or no background in the discipline or those wishing upgrade their existing knowledge in the field. No prior knowledge is assumed. The program offers courses in the three disciplines of Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations, and Organisational Change and Development.

Additional Support

AccessAbility provides advice and reasonable adjustments to Students with a medical or health condition or disability. If you require adjustments to undertake your program,  contact the Student Support Advisors - AccessAbility  before semester or early in the semester. They will work with the Faculty or School to ensure that this happens in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student’s responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. More information is available online

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages unless they can complete both their principal program and the Diploma in Languages within the duration of their CoE. For more information please contact the Student Advice team.
