Melbourne Business School will still be offering the on-campus masters over 2020 with a restricted number of subjects. In order to complete the program and avoid possible visa restrictions, International students are only eligible to commence in February 2020 and will need to complete their final subjects online in 2021. Domestic students are able to commence the degree throughout 2020 and will also be required to take some online subjects in 2021.

    If you would like to commence online study now, our Professional Certificate in Supply Chain Management and Graduate Certificate in Business are available. Following completion of either program you may apply for credit into the updated Master of Supply Chain Management.
