The Master of Business Systems is designed to bring together in a single program the financial, business systems and technology management skills that will form a solid base for those aspiring to careers as senior managers and planners in information-rich and process-oriented organisations. The program should be particularly suitable for those with a business background who need to enhance their business, management and IT knowledge.
Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
Applicants must have: * A completed Bachelor’s degree from a recognised institution in Business or equivalent industry experience. Students without a Business background will be required to complete a Graduate Certificate in Business.
