Application and Admission Requirements

Course Entry Requirements / Prerequisites

Entry into a Curtin Graduate School of Business (CGSB) degree program is via competitive entry. There are a limited number of places available and these are allocated to the highest ranked applicants for each round of offers.

All MBA applicants must:

  1. Possess an undergraduate (or equivalent) degree from a recognised university,
  2. Have a minimum three (3) years of professional work experience
  3. Meet the basic English language requirements via either having completed their degree in English, or achieving an IELTS overall score of 7.0 with no score being less than 6.5 on any of the components. A TOEFL score of 580 via paper-based test, 237 via computer or 100 via internet (25 in each section) is also considered as appropriately meeting the English language requirement.

Well-performed candidates without an appropriate background may be admitted but will be required to complete appropriate bridging and special course units as prescribed. In certain cases, the need to complete these special units may result in an extension of studies beyond the normal length of the course.

Expenses / Tuition Fees

The fees for 2011 will be AUD$38,700 (for domestic students) and AUD$44,100 (for international students).

Australian citizens wishing to undertake graduate studies may be able to access Government underwritten loans through an interest-free loan arrangement.

If the cost of postgraduate study seems too much for you to afford, your employer might be able to help. Many forward-thinking employers have developed formal Employee Education Assistance Policies (EEAPs).

Most successful EEAPs are based on sharing the costs. For example, you and your employer each pay half the tuition fees and you pay the other costs. There are several advantages to cost sharing. For instance, the fees and other expenses are generally tax deductible for both, and there is no Fringe Benefit Tax for the organisation to worry about.

Here are some other good reasons why any employer should consider giving assistance:

  • It attracts and helps retain well-qualified and experienced staff.
  • It increases employee job satisfaction.
  • It shows a commitment to staff development and training, and to internal succession planning.
  • It ensures that the organisation is at the forefront of management and industry practices and it also fosters the loyalty of staff.
