This combined degree program allows students to undertake studies in the more general business disciplines of the Master of Business Administration while also studying the specific Human Resources Management courses of the Master of Human Resource Management. The Master of Business Administration program is designed to provide students with a range of analytic, strategic and leadership skills which will prepare them for increasingly competitive careers in business management in the corporate and public sectors. The program offers a grounding in fundamental business areas such as accounting, finance, organisational behaviour, economics, marketing and management. Analytic and problem solving skills are emphasised through an applied understanding of the theoretical framework within which today's managers must operate, as well as the acquisition of practical skills in teamwork, writing, presentation and time-management. The ability to cope with rapid organisational and technological change is developed through an understanding of organisational behaviour, information systems and organisational change and development. The Master of Human Resource Management program is designed for students with little or no background in the discipline or those wishing upgrade their existing knowledge in the field. No prior knowledge is assumed. The program offers courses in the three disciplines of Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations, and Organisational Change and Development.
