- About Deakin
The Master of Management (Personal Injury) is a 12 credit point Masters degree designed to address the academic needs of professionals working in the growing Australian and New Zealand accident compensation industry. The course has been developed in partnership with the Personal Injury Education Foundation (PIEF), a not-for-profit organisation with members comprising workers' compensation regulators and insurers, motor accident compensation regulators and insurers, private insurance companies and claims management organisations. The program aims to enhance the professionalism of the personal accident compensation industry by supporting development of critical management skills and abilities.
The program comprises specialist units in personal injury management along with broader management units offered by the Faculty of Business and Law that are relevant to those who work in the accident compensation industry. The degree also incorporates one unit provided by Griffith University. Specialist units are jointly organised by Deakin and PIEF with many guest speakers able to bring a wealth of experience, resulting in a rich learning environment.
The programs are available to employees of PIEF constituent organisations and qualified applicants from other areas in the personal injury sector, including allied health; behavioural/occupational health; self insured employers and legal/paralegal roles.
The Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma provide pathways into the Masters degree, but are popular in their own right.
