Your time commitment

Our standard 12-subject Master’s program can be completed in 16 months (four semesters) or as little as 12 months with special approval from the Business School. This requires a full time study load of three to four subjects per semester with each subject requiring, on average, one two-hour lecture and one two-hour tutorial per week. You will also need to allocate at approximately six hours per subject, per week, for at-home assignments. 

We also offer the option of part time study with a reduced subject load and some after hours and intensive mode subjects for MBA students.
