Course sub-headings

Course overview

With more fluid labour markets and career patterns, and governance models increasingly characterised by public–private partnerships and other cross-sectoral arrangements, the combined Master of Politics and Policy/Master of Business Administration provides a unique opportunity for you to acquire a broad range of knowledge and skills applicable in many sectors of the economy.

 

The Master of Politics and Policy/Master of Business Administration is a 16 credit point combined course which brings together two existing courses: the Master of Politics and Policy, which is a program tailored for employees in the public and community sectors; and the Master of Business Administration, which is designed for managers in the private, public and community sectors who wish to extend their knowledge and advance their career.

 

The course will provide you with a strong grounding in the development, implementation and analysis of public policy. Interrelationships between government, the private sector and community organisations, as well as between different levels of government (municipal, state, national and international) will also be studied. More broadly the course addresses the problems of governance within democratic political systems, at the same time aiming to impart knowledge and business skills in areas such as strategic management, finance, economics and marketing.

*Indicative course fees should be used as a guide only. Deakin University assumes no responsibility for persons relying on indicative course fees to calculate the total future cost of their course. The indicative course fee is an estimate based on a typical enrolment a student may have for their first year of study in 2010 for their course. The indicative course fee is based on historical first year enrolments within the course, reflecting the discipline cluster of the units which may be studied within the course. The actual fees charged will depend on the individual units chosen. The cost of each unit can be viewed from the Unit Search.
