ABOUT

The Australian Graduate Management Consortium (AGMC) is offering a dedicated pathway for CIT graduates with supervisory / managerial experience and other professional attainments to undertake Masters level studies.

Students are not required to have completed a bachelor degree as AGMC programs are designed to progressively help build strong foundational knowledge, operational skills and strategic capabilities in management.

AGMC programs are delivered face-to-face at CIT Reid. Class times are tailored to suit busy professionals.

AGMC programs take an applied approach and students will be challenged to draw on their professional experiences and solve management problems within their own organisation.
