Statement of Service form

Work experience will require validation by the relevant employer and cannot be used both as a means of admission and as the basis of an application for advanced standing. Work experience will be evaluated to assess whether prospective students have demonstrated a verifiable capability in management such that they are enabled to undertake the discipline-specific learning contained in this Masters-level program. This criterion is impacted directly by the requirements of a curriculum that addresses AQF Level 9 knowledge and skill outcomes including a stipulation that graduates have cognitive skills to demonstrate mastery of theoretical knowledge in management and to reflect critically on theory and professional practice or scholarship.
