Applicants with demonstrated prior learning in the form of an Australian Bachelor's degree in a business-related field or an approved equivalent qualification will be eligible to apply for advanced standing for the four subjects of the first semester of the course. Applicants without an undergraduate degree but with a demonstrated minimum of at least five years relevant and cognate business experience will be eligible to apply for advanced standing for the four subjects of the first semester of the course.
