About this course

A Master of Commerce degree will allow you to learn more about your chosen subject area, critically view the world, and carry out an independent piece of research. These knowledge, skills, and competencies mean MCom graduates are well-prepared for professional roles and business consulting.

If you have been following the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand programme, study in the MCom counts as one year of professional experience.

Students who have qualified for a Bachelor of Commerce with Honours or equivalent may be admitted to the MCom by thesis only in that major (one year, worth 120 points).

Entry requirements

Students must have completed one of the following:

  • Bachelor of Commerce
  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Bachelor of Science in Economics, Finance, or Computer Science
  • any bachelor's degree, and a relevant graduate diploma in your major subject.

Prerequisites vary between majors, but normally good grades in 300-level courses in the subject concerned are required. For information on the prerequisites for each subject see the Master of Commerce Schedule.

If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.

For the full entry requirements, see the Regulations for the Master of Commerce or use the admission requirements checker.
