Overview

  • Are you looking to make the next big move for your career? USQ’s Master of Business General specialisation lets you pick four courses from the Master of Business, Master of Project Management, or other postgraduate courses to customise your degree to suit your career aspirations.
  • This degree emphasises on collaboration with other specialisations to prepare you for decision making in the future - ensuring you are well equipped for this era of innovation.
  • Expand your knowledge in business and entrepreneurship with the Research specialisation. It has a practical emphasis on innovative and creative approaches to current issues in the business environment. You can use your own experiences as a backdrop to your studies and develop a research project based on your current workplace.

Entry requirements 

  • Completion of a bachelor degree, or equivalent, in the area of business, or equivalent.

Note: If you have a bachelor degree, or equivalent (AQF level 7), in a non-business-related discipline from a recognised institution, USQ’s Graduate Certificate of Business provides a pathway into the Master of Business. Upon completion and achievement of a minimum GPA of 4.0, you will be eligible for entry into the Master of Business. Eligibility for entry will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

English language requirements

You are required to satisfy the applicable English language requirements and this degree requires a minimum of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. If you do not meet the English language requirements you may apply to study a University-approved English language program.

Recognition of prior learning or work experience

You may be eligible for recognition of prior learning if you have previously studied or have relevant work experience. This will help to reduce the number of courses that you need to study to finish your program.
