Swinburne Online has launched four new postgraduate business programs to commence in November 2014.
The courses include a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Professional Accounting as well as two Graduate Certificates in Business Administration and Professional Accounting, which can act as pathways into the Masters.
CEO Denice Pitt said the success of Swinburne Online’s Master of Teaching and Graduate Diploma of Teaching has shown there is an unmet demand from students and the community for more flexible and accessible postgraduate degrees.
“Professionals today realise they need to constantly improve and update their skill base in order to stay competitive or move forward in their career.
“Swinburne Online’s business programs allow these time poor, working Australians to advance their careers while maintaining their current work and life commitments.
“Committing to further education means having a goal in sight. Our business courses allow our highly motivated, career driven students to learn through each other’s experiences whilst building their professional network,” Ms Pitt said.
Graduates of Swinburne Online’s MBA receive a qualification from Swinburne University of Technology, which rated five stars for staff, four stars for connections to industry and size of faculty, and three stars for graduate career outcomes in The Good Universities Guide to MBA and Management Courses 2014.
Swinburne University of Technology Director of Postgraduate Education for the Faculty of Business and Enterprise, Dr Julian Vieceli said the online programs will provide relevant skills for the professionals of the future.
“Traditionally, studying business at a postgraduate level was about networking and being in a likeminded environment to forge strong relationships with peers for professional advancement. This is certainly still the case, but as the workplace has changed, so has teaching and learning.
“These online programs really capture what is happening in the world of business now. It will equip students with skills to manage remote workforces, deal with changing environments and communicate effectively across different platforms,” Dr Vieceli said.
Applications for Swinburne Online’s new business programs close on 24 October 2014. To find out more or to apply today, please follow the links below.
