Course content

Deakin’s Master of Commerce (MCom) is a discipline-based coursework degree with six core units (Accounting, Finance, Economics for Managers, Business Process Management, Business Communication for Managers, and Business Strategy and Analysis); a selection of at least two units from a further six co-core units (Corporate Governance and Ethics, Critical Thinking for Managers, Ethics for Managers, Analytical Skills for Managers, Managing for Environmental Sustainability and Postgraduate Internship); at least one specialisation (four units); and the option to take a second specialisation or select further elective units of study.

It is designed for graduates of any discipline, as a first qualification in business.

The course uses sophisticated computer-mediated conferencing for classes, 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.
