Description

This program commences in Trimester 1 2019. Students wishing to commence their studies in 2018 should refer to Program No 40149 at https://gradschool.edu.au/programs/overview/master-professional-accounting-master-business-administration-40149 .

The Master of Professional Accounting/Master of Business Administration is a Coursework combined program and is designed for students with a degree in a field other than Accounting who wish to obtain a sound introduction to accounting and business concepts and procedures. The program encompasses study in finance, general management, taxation law and auditing, marketing, human resources management, International business, E-business and entrepreneurship.

The Master of Business Administration provides 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 organisational behaviour, leadership, 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.
