Many academic and professional staff at Macquarie need to work with the Macquarie Curriculum Management System (known as the MQCMS), because when it comes to all the courses and units offered to our students, it is THE ‘source of truth’.

Among other things, the MQCMS is integral to:

  • Curriculum design, development and approval
  • Quality control and governance
  • Populating other MQ systems
  • Management and storage of curriculum information
  • Unit review and course reaccreditation

A module to help you make sense of the MQCMS

We have developed a short module, available via Workday, which will:

  • Introduce you to the MQCMS
  • Outline how information flows from the MQCMS to other MQ systems and processes
  • explain the approval process and timelines
  • Show you how to search information in the system and make unit or course amendments
