Positives: Broad knowledge about practical accounting and uses
Negatives: Nothing major
My advice to future students is: Self studies are very important
Positives: The CSU MBA program provides 3 months industrial placement which is a good opportunity for newbie graduates.
Negatives: Poor communication between the staff members. Also needs to improve the quality of the lecturers and the content. Plus CSU needs to improve their student portal since some notifications never came up in the portal.
My advice to future students is: Make sure you check your emails since most of the time lecturers are notified via emails. And if you apply for special circumstances make sure to check with the HR department each day regarding your request since the communication in HR department is very poor.
Negatives is it's a course that had no flexibility due to the field of accounting but if I had time again I wouldn't do the accounting aspect (I'd just do a business course) as I don't want to be an accountant. Positive it's nearly over.
My advice to future students is: Ensure good communication with lecturers from start
The course was very practical, we had both theory based subjects and on hands practical subjects.
One aspect the university could improve on is incorporating accounting softwares within the program.
My advice to future students - The degree will assist your academic qualifications , however, keep your mind open to enrolling into another program where you can utilize for academic skills and learn the practical side of accounting softwares.
I studied via distance education and I found the lecturers were very attentive and helpful, and I genuinely enjoyed the content.
It has been positive in that it has taught me skills relating to targeting different audiences and niche markets, and I found the course very interesting.
I found the lecturers were knowledgeable and the course was well structured. However, I feel that the course is not very applicable or practically oriented.
The theory is important and delivered well, however the course did not teach me the reality of managing a business.
Pros - great lecturers and hands on experience
Cons - work experience in the area
