Deakin’s Master of Commerce is a discipline-based coursework degree with common core units in Accounting, Information Systems for Business, Economics for Managers and Finance. It is designed for graduates of any discipline, as a first qualification in business.
The course uses sophisticated computer-mediated conferencing for lectures, conferences, group work and debates among students, as well as for assessment. One of the great benefits of this is the excellent experience it will provide you in the use of information technology, which is a core competency for employees in today’s commerce and related industries.
As part of the Master of Commerce you must complete at least one specialisation in the areas of Accounting, Arts and Entertainment Management, Business Systems Development, Commercial Law, Electronic Business, Enterprise Security Management, Finance, Financial Planning, Information Systems Project Management, Insurance, International Trade and Business, Management Information Systems, Marketing and Risk Management.
By choosing appropriate units within the Master of Commerce, you may satisfy the professional recognition requirements of CPA Australia, Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA), the Institute of Public Accountants, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (ICMA) or associate membership requirements of the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
The MCom is a 12 credit point degree. Students will be required to complete a core of 4 credit points and at least one specialisation of 4 credit points, which may include a core unit, chosen from the range of specialisations offered.
To complete the degree students may choose any units from the full range of MCom units offered. It will be possible to complete more than one specialisation. Students may also choose to exit the Master of Commerce early with either a Graduate Certificate of Commerce (consisting of any four Master of Commerce units) or a Graduate Diploma of Commerce (consisting of any eight Master of Commerce units).
Commerce graduates would normally be precluded from one or more of the core units and required to undertake substitute units from the full range of MCom units. These students are expected to specialise in an area other than their undergraduate major(s).
