Upon graduation, students can choose either a degree certificate from UOWD or a degree certificate from the University of Wollongong Australia.
The Master of Business program also offers specialisations in Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Marketing, International Business and Management. If you decide you would like to complete two MBus specialisations when you enrol at UOWD, there are arrangements in place that mean you can do this in in minimal time. Connect with us to find out more.
The maximum requirement to graduate from a single specialisation MBus program is twelve (12) subjects. However, if you have completed a Bachelor degree in a relevant business area or a UOWD Graduate Certificate in Business, you may be able to complete the MBus program in a total of ten (10) subjects in line with UOWD’s policy on Credit for Prior Learning. Your eligibility for Credit for Prior Learning will be decided in consultation with UOWD’s Faculty of Business and Management office prior to the beginning of the program.
To complete a single specialisation, it will normally take you ﬁve or six semesters (based on 3 mandatory semesters per year where you take 2 subjects). At this rate, the degree can be completed within two years or less. If you take 3 subjects per mandatory semester, you can fast-track your degree and complete the program in four or five semesters (just over a year). Classes are held from 6:00pm - 9:30pm, Sunday to Thursday, with occasional Saturday classes. Each subject requires one evening of attendance for 11 weeks.
