Change to CPA Australia's postgraduate strategy ensures diverse offering for MBA studies

Pathways towards members obtaining a masters degree will be streamlined under a postgraduate strategy change by CPA Australia. This change in strategy builds on the strength and reputation of the CPA Program in the marketplace and will enable member access into a broad range of MBAs.

Current MBA credit arrangements with Charles Sturt University, Curtin University and Deakin University and a wide range of other universities around Australia will continue.

Intakes into the three CPA MBA programs - Charles Sturt University, Curtin University and Deakin University - will cease at the end of 2006, however, students enrolled at that time will be unaffected as they will be able to complete their CPA MBA studies and obtain the qualification.

The rationale for this change is to ensure that a diverse offering of postgraduate opportunities is available to all members of CPA Australia and that credit arrangements (recognition of the completion of the CPA Program segments by universities) be pursued to the maximum extent to assist members in completing these programs in the shortest possible timeframe and at less expense.

CPA Australia will continue to encourage and support our members to choose the best MBA for their career progression. While the CPA MBA will be discontinued from January 2007, members currently completing the CPA MBA will continue to be supported.

The MBA programs on offer include both on campus and distance learning study options.

Members based outside of Australia will continue to have access to MBAs through off-shore programs from Australian universities as well as through distance learning.
