According to the SBI rankings, Deakin’s graduates earned on average US$84,000 a year three years after finishing their students, compared to US$79,000 for students from University of Oregon Warsaw Sports Marketing Centre and US$76,100 for students at Ohio University Master of Sport Administration.

TSBE Postgraduate Program Update - University of Tasmania

TSBE Postgraduate Program Update

Throughout 2013 and 2014, the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics (TSBE) reviewed and renewed many courses.  These changes, which were responding to both market demands and the requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), have resulted in different entry pathways for some students.  A summary of the changes and pathways, for any students commencing from semester 1, 2015 (except those with existing offers) is outlined below.
The following information makes reference to “related” degrees.  This includes any business or commerce qualification, but can also include more specific areas of study depending on the course being applied for.  For example, a student applying for a Master of International Business might have a related degree if they have studied a major in International Relations or a Law degree.  In most cases the relationship will be fairly obvious, but if in doubt, the TSBE can assess the degree as part of the application process.

Master of International Business

The Master of International Business has been converted from a 1 year degree to 1.5 years.  Two new units, Doing Business in Asia and Europe and International Trade Regulation and Practice, have been created for International Business students.

Admission requirements for this degree are either a related undergraduate degree or completion of the Graduate Certificate of International Business.  Students who have an undergraduate degree which is not deemed “related” will need to first complete a Graduate Certificate of International Business, which will then articulate into the MIB with full credit.  Students taking the Graduate Certificate pathway will receive an offer for “Graduate Certificate of International Business leading to Master of International Business”, and will still be able to complete in 1.5 years.

We still offer a 2 year Master of International Business (Specialisation), and there have been no changes in the entry requirements for this degree.  Any Australian-equivalent undergraduate degree is acceptable for entry.

Professional Accounting programs

The structure of the Master of Professional Accounting degree has not changed, but the entry requirements have been altered. Students may now only enter the MPA with a “related” undergraduate or postgraduate degree with a non-accounting major.  Note that these students will still complete a 1.5 year program.

Students who do not have a related degree, must commence in a Graduate Certificate in Professional Accounting (GCPA).  This applies to those students who formerly would enter the Master of Professional Accounting (Specialisation) (MPA(S)) under alternative arrangements (non-degree students).  These students will complete four units under the GCPA, and then if they wish to go into the Master’s program must go on to the MPAS – they cannot move into the MPA.  All four units completed under the GCPA will count to the MPAS, meaning that program will still be completed in 2 years total.
The only direct entry options into the MPAS now are by Australian-equivalent undergraduate degree or completed GCPA.  Students taking this pathway option will receive an offer for “Graduate Certificate of Professional Accounting leading to Master of Professional Accounting (Specialisation)”.  Regardless of entry pathway, these students will still complete their MPAS in 2 years.

Master of Finance (Specialisation)

Commencing in semester 1, 2015, this new 2 year program will give students the opportunity to extend their finance studies with a small number of business specialisation areas related to finance, including environmental management, human resource management, and a research project option.

Entry to the course is by any Australian-equivalent undergraduate degree with a non-finance major, or with a completed Master of Finance from the TSBE.

Master of Business Administration programs

The MBA suite of programs is the area of most significant change in terms of entry.  First, the IELTS requirements for all courses in the MBA suite (including Graduate Certificate of Management and Graduate Diploma of Business Administration, plus all specialisation MBAs) has been raised to 6.5, with no band below 6.0. 

Entry is by related undergraduate degree plus three years’ relevant work experience, or completion of either the Graduate Certificate of Management or Graduate Diploma of Business Administration (see below for information on these pathways).
The structure of the MBA has changed, with the core reduced to 8 for a standard MBA and units changed to include leadership, entrepreneurship and ethics, all areas identified by business as being essential for new MBA graduates.  The core reduction means four elective units - and more choice - for students.  Completion time for the standard MBA is still 1.5 years. 
The MBA (Specialisation) has had its core changed to reflect the changes to the MBA.  Other than the IELTS, there are no changes to the entry requirements; students can enter the degree with any Australian-equivalent undergraduate degree, and do not require any work experience.  This is still a 2 year program.
Students who wish to complete a standard MBA, rather than an MBAS, but who do not meet the direct entry requirements of a related degree plus work experience, have two pathway options depending on their qualifications. 
·        Students with an unrelated undergraduate degree plus six months’ relevant work experience are eligible for entry into the Graduate Certificate of Management (GCMgt).  These students will complete four business fundamentals units.  They are then eligible for entry into the MBA, and can articulate in with full credit – the four foundation units will count as the four electives in this case.  Students undertaking this pathway will receive an offer for “Graduate Certificate of Management leading to Master of Business Administration”.
Students who have no degree, but at least seven years’ relevant work experience, can enter via a Graduate Diploma of Business Administration.  This is an 8 unit course, which includes the four foundation units from the GCMgt, one unit designed to transition students from work to university study, and three other “electives” – units selected in consultation with the MBA Director to address areas relevant to the student’s career development.  On completion, students can articulate into the MBA, with four units of credit. As with the Graduate Certificate, these will be the foundation units and will replace the electives in the MBA.  It should be noted that it is very rare for an international student to come in to an MBA without a degree of any sort, however any whose application for this pathway is successful will receive an offer for “Graduate Diploma of Business Administration leading to Master of Business Administration”. 

Unitec- Foundation Study Options, still available!!

The Masters of Business Administration (Industry Specialisation) offers students the opportunity to build on their knowledge in one of three specialised sectors of the maritime industry:
·        MBA (Marine Environment and Management)
·        MBA (Maritime Technology and Management)
·        MBA (Shipping and Maritime Management)

With a focus on an applied approach, centered on strategic and analytical thinking, graduates from this course will have the attributes necessary to lead, develop and implement sound management practices in the maritime industry.

2. Masters of Marketing Management
Marketing with a difference! The TSBE has developed a new Masters of Marketing Management course designed to develop marketing executives with strong analytical and creative skills, who are prepared to operate and innovate in business-to-business and industrial markets.  Although most universities offer a general postgraduate Master’s degree in marketing, and some offer a specialisation within the degree, there is no other Master’s degree primarily aimed at business-to-business, the area where most marketing dollars are spent.

New IELTS requirements for Education!

Most Education courses now require an IELTS score of 7.5 overall (with no individual band for listening and speaking less than 8.0, and writing and reading no less than 7.0).
  • Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood)
  • Bachelor of Education (Primary)
  • Bachelor of Education (HPE and Health Science)
  • Bachelor of Education (HPE and Outdoor Education)
  • Bachelor of Education (Health and Physical Education)
  • Master of Teaching
