International Students: To fulfil your student visa requirements, you’ll need to enrol in 30cp per semester. However, you may enrol in 40cp per semester (with your Program Advisor’s authorisation) which will reduce the time to complete your program.
Domestic Students have the option of undertaking either 30 or 40cp per semester.
Graduates should be equipped with highly developed research, analytical and technical writing skills. They would normally progress into an academic career from this program and it is common practice to enter a Doctor of Philosophy.
All students must complete the following 4 subjects
* Research Design
* Quantitative Methods for Business Research
* Advanced Econometrics
* Research Methodology 2
Plus 4 relevant postgraduate subjects, seminars or directed studies as recommended by the supervisor. Under the direction of their supervisor, students will also undertake further coursework and/or independent studies pertinent to the proposed research topic and methodology. These subjects may deepen discipline knowledge, introduce related/supporting disciplines and/or broaden the student’s background in business generally. (Depending on prior studies, students may receive credit for up to 3 subjects.)
Students must also complete a Thesis. The Thesis constitutes a coherent argument that should communicate the significant aspects of the research and writing undertaken in a period of time equivalent to four subjects.
