Postgraduate Information

ICMS postgraduate programs combine in-depth business and management coursework with specialist electives and an Industry Research Project to provide a practical and relevant learning experience.

Whether you are looking to advance your career or give it a new direction, an ICMS Master’s degree will help you achieve your professional objectives.

Your degree will include the fundamentals of management, accounting, marketing, strategic intelligence and finance. You will develop your understanding of contemporary issues relating to services management, operations management, and leadership, including ethical and legal dimensions.

When you graduate you will have an advanced understanding of the complexities of decision-making and strategic thinking.

In two years or less, you’ll have a postgraduate qualification and practical industry experience to enter the fields of hospitality and tourism, international business or general management. ICMS also offers a 6-month Graduate Certificate of Business [link here: http://www.icms.edu.au/course/graduate-certificate-business].

Our flexible timetabling lets you choose subjects to suit your lifestyle. We offer regular weekly classes in the day or evening. You may also select some of our intensive classes over weekends to accelerate your learning.

All our Master’s classes are taught in a seminar style. We have found that small interactive classes are the best way for students to gain a deeper understanding of business and management trends as they collectively examine and discuss key issues in industry. Small classes also strengthen the working relationship between students, teaching staff and guest speakers.

FRIENDLY AND SUPPORTIVE CAMPUS

It would be hard to find a college in a more spectacular location than our sandstone building in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly.  The campus is a five-minute walk to famous Manly Beach, one of Sydney’s premier surfing beaches. Manly’s vibrant shopping precinct is well known for its cafés, restaurants and nightlife.

Some of our subjects are also taught at our city venue, conveniently located in

Sydney CBD. This means you have the option of studying select subjects in the city with evening classes and access to modern teaching facilities.

DEGREE STRUCTURE

All ICMS Master’s programs consist of the following:

• 3 semesters (12 subjects) of in-depth coursework plus one semester to complete an Industry Research Project.

• Your Industry Research Project involves 600 hours working with an organisation in your industry. It may be based on either a real-world problem identified by an ICMS industry partner, or an in-depth research assignment that allows you to apply the skills or knowledge you have learnt during your postgraduate studies.

Note: As a full-time student, you will complete a research project with the assistance of academic supervision in your final semester while working with an organisation. As a part-time student, if you are working full time you may undertake the Industry Research Project concurrently with your studies.

• 2-year program duration means international students are eligible to apply for the 2-year post study work visa upon completion.
