Executive Master of Arts
The EMA is designed for graduates who are eager to shape leadership roles for themselves in the 21st century. It is a program which recognises the unique benefits that can be gained by combining traditional Arts strengths in analysis, ethics and critical reasoning, with a skill set appropriate for managing resources, planning projects and delivering results in a dynamic, contemporary workplace. EMA subjects include guest speakers, case studies of prominent leaders, and opportunities for group discussion and critical self-reflection.
This graduate program combines your previous discipline-specific knowledge with strategic and professional skills. It covers areas such as professional communication, leadership, people management, financial management and budgeting, and project management methodology. The Executive Master of Arts is the first program of its kind in Australia and has been developed in consultation with the industry, government and community sectors.

Commonwealth Supported Places
A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
