Master of Commerce
Level: Postgraduate coursework
Whatever your goals, the choice and flexibility offered by the Master of Commerce program (MCom) will allow you to advance your career in virtually any field. The MCom equips you with the knowledge, skills and transferable competencies required to accelerate your career in a wide variety of business professions.
The MCom offers considerable flexibility, with a choice of foundational business knowledge and discipline‑specific areas of study within the business domain. After completing your foundational units, the program allows you to choose up to three areas of specialisation.
The MCom is designed to meet the learning needs and career aspirations of three main types of students: ‘career changers’, who have some professional work experience but wish to shift their career focus to commerce or business; ‘discipline changers’, who have limited or no professional work experience and wish to change to a different disciplinary focus from their undergraduate degree; and ‘advanced learners’, who want to undertake deeper learning in the same disciplinary field as their undergraduate degree.
RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
The Business School recognises the importance of prior learning and industry experience. Recognition of prior learning (RPL) and work experience can mean a reduction in the units of study required from 16 to 12 or even eight units of study.
For example, a student with a bachelor’s degree in the business field or professional work experience would be eligible for a 25 percent (four unit) reduction, reducing the course duration from two to one and a half years.
