Overview and Aims of the Program To prepare and fast-track aspiring managers to assume management roles in contemporary organisations.
Graduate Capabilities

The Graduate Capabilities Framework articulates the fundamentals that underpin all of Macquarie’s academic programs. It expresses these as follows:

Cognitive capabilities
(K) discipline specific knowledge and skills
(T) critical, analytical and integrative thinking
(P) problem solving and research capability
(I) creative and innovative

Interpersonal or social capabilities
(C) effective communication
(E) engaged and ethical local and global citizens
(A) socially and environmentally active and responsible

Personal capabilities
(J) capable of professional and personal judgement and initiative
(L) commitment to continuous learning

Program Learning Outcomes By the end of this program graduates should be able to:

1. Understand, analyse, and critically evaluate the financial, socioeconomic, and competitive environment of organisations.
2. Apply frameworks and tools to solve complex managerial problems and create options that generate sustainable value beyond traditional measures of business performance.
3. Understand and evaluate the ethical, social, and environmental impact of managerial strategies on stakeholder relationships (including customers, shareholders, partners, networks, governments, communities, and environment).
4. Synthesise and apply appropriate leadership styles and behaviours to manage teams effectively, wisely, and humbly.
5. Apply cross-cultural frameworks to self-reflect on, interpret, and adapt to new and diverse work contexts in a transformational process of learning how to be a manager.
Learning and Teaching Methods The program incorporates a variety of learning and teaching methods including formal lectures, group discussions, group projects, online learning, practical experience and individual workplace-based projects.
Students are exposed to frameworks related to the fundamentals of management. These will form the basis for discussion and collaboration within the interactive environment of the classroom. Material will be applied directly to business situations through case studies and assessment.
As students progress through the program, they are given the opportunity to put their learning into practice with both live business-cases within classes and a professional practice unit.
Assessment Assessment of student learning and feedback on progress are facilitated through unit assessments. Assessment tasks are aligned with learning outcomes for each unit and graduate capabilities.

All standard, 4 credit point units taught at MGSM are structured to have a standard student workload of 150 hours, including 40 hours of class interaction time allocated to a combination of group and individual assessment items, based on the learning outcomes of each unit.

The MGSM applies an annual Assurance of Learning Programme (AOL) in which students are assessed on rubrics based on the mission-driven attributes of leadership, global mindset, sustainable value and citizenship. Results are collected, disseminated and analysed, and used to inform unit and curriculum development as part of a continuous improvement process.

Students are assessed on both group and individual work in core units. Syndicate group assessments are considered an important aspect of the collaborative learning approach taken, reflecting the typical environment encountered within a management career.

Assessment methods include:
o individual essay or report
o group project and report
o critical reflection paper
o presentation (group or individual)
o case study
o in-class test
o research project
o literature review
o client presentation
o final examination.

Program Standards and Quality

The program is subject to an ongoing comprehensive process of quality review in accordance with a pre-determined schedule that complies with the Higher Education Standards Framework. The review is overseen by Macquarie University's peak academic governance body, the Academic Senate and takes into account feedback received from students, staff and external stakeholders.

Graduate Destinations and Employability Qualifications alone will not result in a new job or advancement in a career. Therefore, MGSM offers its students a range of complementary services to assist them in navigating a successful career path. For instance, students can access expert career guidance through personal consultations with dedicated, professional career advisors. MGSM offers career coaching to help students' unlock their career potential through: increased awareness of their strongest motivators and interests, and transferable skills and personal values. This can lead to increased career satisfaction and success. MGSM also conducts a range of career preparation seminars covering key skill areas and provides networking opportunities with prospective employers, as well as recruitment roadshow events.

MGSM's Master of Management students can also gain practical work experience with influential organisations. This experience is achieved through a Professional Practice unit (that is equivalent to 2 units) embedded in the Master of Management program structure. The Professional Practice unit and other such industry experience opportunities available in MGSM's Master of Management program expose students to contemporary business practice and perspectives in environments that help them to develop critical professional skills necessary to be successful in management roles.

Further to this, recruiters, employers, management consultants, executive search firms and even members of MGSM's alumni community regularly source talent directly from MGSM due to MGSM's consistent ranking as one of the world's top business schools for student quality.
