Months of entry
The Master of Commerce is designed for current managers seeking formal qualifications in finance or those seeking to move into senior management or a financial role. This program will help you to further develop your finance and management skills, and build specialist knowledge within your chosen area.
The Master of Commerce program offers two different entry points depending on your previous studies. The Master (1.5 years) is designed for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree in the same discipline. The Master (2 years) includes the core fundamentals of general management for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree from any discipline. Both Masters provide an opportunity for two fields of study or additional research electives (which may provide a pathway to research higher degree programs). Each specialised field of study will equip you with the relevant knowledge to jumpstart or advance your chosen profession.
You can choose to specialise in the areas of applied finance, electronic commerce, information systems or professional accounting.
Fees and funding
Indicative annual fees are calculated on the basis of two full-time semesters only. Actual annual fees may vary in accordance with your choices of majors and electives and whether you study in Summer Semester. Tuition fees are indexed each year. The indexation rate is fixed 18 months in advance of a particular academic year thereby allowing you to plan your finances ahead of time. The University's intent is that fee rate increases will be kept to a minimum and that indexation rates will remain stable wherever possible. Since 2007 the indexation rate has remained at or less than 4%.
(To calculate the fees for any program, you will first need to choose the courses you wish to complete. To see all courses available please refer to the course list.)
