Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Management is a highly flexible management degree with a small number of core units, allowing students to concentrate their studies into the area/s that most interest them. A wide range of specialist majors are available from within the Faculty of Business and Law, and students can also select a major from another faculty such as psychology, public relations, journalism or many others (subject to satisfying entry requirements).

Articulation

Students who have completed a Certificate of Management, a Diploma of Management or an Associate Degree of Management with DeakinPrime may articulate to the Bachelor of Management with full credit.
Articulating students should seek course advice from enrolment officers at the Faculty office on Warrnambool campus, telephone 03 5563 3358.

Business internship program

The Bachelor of Management incorporates a business internship program which provides students with a realistic business experience in their area of specialisation. Two 1-credit-point units, available to final-year students, have been developed to provide experiential learning opportunities which foster the development of practical capabilities and enhance employment prospects for graduates. These units complement each major area of study and are available on all campuses and off campus.

Fees and charges

Commonwealth supported students (CSP)
Students who commenced their course before 1 January 2005 will be able to study under the current (indexed) student contribution levels until the end of 2008, unless they discontinue their enrolment without formally deferring or complete their course of study.

Fee paying students
For students enrolled prior to 2005, fees were calculated based on the fee rate applicable to the course in which they were enrolled. This fee rate was fixed for the minimum expected duration of the course, i.e. the minimum amount of time in which the course could be completed. This method of calculation will be maintained for continuing students (for the pre-2005 course only) unless the student has exceeded the minimum period for completion of the course.

From 2005 fees will be calculated on a per unit basis. The fees charged will depend on the individual units chosen. The cost of each unit can be viewed within each unit description or you can specifically search for units at http://www.deakin.edu.au/handbooks2007/search.php.   Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and services.
