Master's of international business


What is your opinion of the master's of international business at Macquarie University or MBS?

What is the scope of such specialization degrees in Australia , are they even worth it. like MBA
From scope, I mean Employment after completing, salary hikes, Positions at top firms, ROI etc

- Given a choice, would you prefer master in specialization degree over MBA

- With perpetually growing globalization trend( apart from China-US trade conflicts), What are the thoughts on the future of pursuing international Business in Australia

If you don't have enough work experience to enter an excellent MBA, a specialised masters from an excellent business school is much better than an MBA from an inferior school.

The value of the specialised masters depends on the specialisation. A masters in finance, for example, involves hard skills which are easy to put to work. The MGSM has a masters in management (https://www.mq.edu.au/about/about-the-university/faculties-and-departments/business/study-with-us/mgsm/master-of-management). The masters in international business at Macquaries seems to be taught by the pre-experience part of the school rather than by the graduate school of management, so the experience will be not so good. Generally, the masters in international business is aimed at students who want to be in import/export roles in their own countries.

What are your goals?

If you don't already have permission to work in Australia and want to work there, make sure they course you are looking at is at least 16 months. Otherwise you won't be eligible for a work permit after graduating. (from what I understand).

I am 25 Male System Analyst working in fortune 500. Experience 3+ years now.
Targeting for GMAT with score around 700.
I like Business field more than Coding/ Tech

I have 2 primarily goals:
1) To do something with my business knowledge where my decisions make some impact. I'm dreaming of being a Business Analyst, consultant or Strategic management.
2) To settle abroad ( preferably in Australia)

2 things confuse me most at this point in time:
I heard for 3 years work ex, no good MBA admissions in Australia can be achieved, which is partially true & I understand that.
Secondly, they say there's not much scope in Business management as in Tech in the continent.

Lastly, GMAT is not required for most B schools in Australia.

Thats the reason why I am thinking of doing specialization from a good college rather than doing MBA( which from a good reputed college is a rarest chance) .

Any thoughts/ suggestions are most welcome!

I'm not sure what you mean by doing a good specialization. If you mean a specialized business master's program, AND you wish to leverage that to transition to Australia, you need to make sure it's of adequate length to get a visa. I think it's 16 months, minimum.

I think that as long as you target a top school and can get a work visa, you should have decent changes of making the transition.

I would agree with the points about, but also make sure you go with a school that is accredited by AMBA, EQUIS, or AACSB.
