Program duration and structure
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 area or a UOWD Graduate Certificate in Business, or you have extensive professional work experience in a related area alongside a Bachelor degree, 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 office prior to the beginning of the program.
A single specialisation MBus program will normally take you five or six semesters to complete (based on three semesters per year with summer as an optional semester and two subjects per semester). At this rate, the degree can be completed in two years or less. Classes are held 6:00pm - 9:30pm, Sunday to Thursday. Each subject requires one evening of attendance for 13 weeks.
