CSU's Master of Management articulated program provides a dedicated pathway for TAFE graduates and other suitably qualified applicants with supervisory or managerial experience and professional attainments to undertake Masters-level studies. Students are not required to have completed a Bachelor degree, as the course is designed to progressively help you build strong foundation knowledge, operational skills and strategic capabilities in organisational management. The program is offered through the Australian Graduate Management Consortium (AGMC), a unique partnership between TAFE NSW and CSU, to deliver postgraduate studies at your local TAFE.

  • Why study this course?

    The Master of Management is designed to provide advanced knowledge and skills for professionals who need to make complex business decisions. The course aims to develop operational and strategic capabilities in management which can be practically applied to lead organisations in competitive operating environments. The course is structured to help graduates develop critical thinking, problem solving, ethical decision making and effective communication skills.

    Students first complete the Graduate Certificate in Management (Professional Practice) and the Graduate Diploma of Management (Professional Practice) - both taught face-to-face through the AGMC at TAFEs in NSW and the ACT - before progressing with full credit and guaranteed entry into the Master of Management (delivered online by CSU). Each articulation is a stand-alone postgraduate degree and students may exit at the Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma levels, or graduate with three qualifications at the end of their Masters studies.

    More information about the AGMC, courses, TAFE delivery site options and instructions on how to apply is available at the AGMC website.
