Sport management
Sport management deals with the organisation and delivery
of sport in its various manifestations at the elite, semi-elite and
recreational levels. The principle focus of sport management,
as an academic discipline, is in the preparation of managers
with the skills to provide leadership and direction for sporting
organisations. Deakin’s sport management courses are offered
within the framework of a business education, emphasising
management, marketing and finance. A number of disciplines
are drawn on, including sociology and psychology, to contribute
to an understanding of sport in its broader social context and
incorporating theories of leadership motivation and consumer
behaviour.
The graduate certificate is a pathway to the Master of Business
(Sport Management).

(MBA) (International) online through Deakin gave
Ivica Orsolic the freedom to study where and when
he chose. ‘Some weeks I couldn’t do anything at

Online study was great because I would set up all
the materials on my laptop and it didn’t matter

Finance is directed towards the requirements of finance professionals.
Students develop their understanding of finance markets, their critical
thinking skills and their ability to apply theoretical understanding and
research results to practical finance problems.
For graduates already working in the finance industry it will improve their
professional capabilities in a range of finance domains; for graduates
without a background in finance it will provide advanced studies in financial
markets and appropriate research methodologies.
The Master of International Finance is a 12 credit point course taken over 1.5
years of full-time study (or the part-time equivalent) available to graduates
in finance as well as to graduates of other disciplines. The course is offered
on campus in Melbourne and off campus.
The Graduate Certificate of Finance and the Graduate Diploma of
International Finance are available as pathways to the Master of
International Finance. The courses provide a sound foundation in the key
areas of international finance and give students formal recognition of their
knowledge and skills in international finance as they progress towards the
Master of International Finance.

      businesses or other organisations.
      Over the residential week, participants get to know each other and
      build strong working relationships. By the end of the week, they
      have a sense of accomplishment, many new friends, and a solid
      understanding of the academic and practical aspects of the topic

      Written work is completed in the weeks following the residential

      Research degrees

      Deakin University provides research degrees
      to match a variety of career plans and personal
      circumstances. Part-time or full-time study is
      available on campus and some programs may
      also be available off campus.
      The two main types of research degree we
      provide are the research masters and the Doctor
      of Philosophy (PhD).
      A masters degree is awarded to a candidate for
      making an original contribution to knowledge
      achieved in one to two years of full-time
      candidature or the part-time equivalent. The
      focus of these postgraduate degrees is on
      research. However some coursework may be
      included.
      A doctoral degree is awarded to a candidate
      for making a substantial original contribution
      to knowledge achieved in two to four years of
      full-time candidature or the part-time equivalent.
      The PhD is becoming the minimum desired
      qualification for pursuing a career in academia
      or research and is an ideal basis for many other
      careers.
