Program Directors and Discipline Coordinators

The Business School has recognised the value in having a designated Program Director for each postgraduate coursework programs. A program is defined as an articulated set of courses typically comprising all or a subset of a Graduate Certificate, a Graduate Diploma, a Masters degree/combined Masters degree. Each Program Director has both long-term and day-to-day stewardship of their program. They are responsible for the provision of academic and strategic leadership for their program, as well as for providing program-wide advice and support to students in that program.

There is an important distinction made between a Program Director and a Discipline Postgraduate Coursework Coordinator representing each Discipline (or Centre) in the Business School. A Postgraduate Coursework Coordinator has responsibility for the Discipline's contribution to postgraduate programs across all programs. A Program Director is much more focussed on, and has responsibility for, an entire program regardless of discipline content.

Students seeking broad advice regarding the structure and content of their particular program should consult the relevant Program Director listed below. For advice on enrolment, fees and related administrative matters, students should first consult a student adviser in the Business School's Students Information Office.
