Master of Business Administration Course Specifications
This 3-year part-time, on-campus course is offered by the Faculty of Commerce at the Hobart and Launceston campuses.
Initially the course has been offered in the part-time mode only with the minimum time for completion of the 12 unit course being 3 years. Students will now have the option of completing the course in less than three years by taking summer school units. The course is conducted over 7 weekend sessions per semester. For each unit seven 3.25-hour (Saturday) sessions are held alternatively between Hobart and Launceston (ie 4/7 at Hobart and 3/7 at Launceston). The course is full fee paying. Fees cover tuition, all study materials (with the exception of text books) and costs associated with the study sessions.
All units are subject to formal assessment normally including assignments and a final examination.
The Faculty of Commerce may accept as a candidate for the Master of Business Administration any of the following:

|(b)||has had at least two years appropriate work experience;|
