Bachelor of Commerce and Administration (Hons)
The Bachelor of Commerce and Administration (BCA [Hons]) consists of eight courses, usually studied full-time over two trimesters. On successful completion of this programme you can continue on to the Masters of Commerce and Administration.
Masters of Commerce and Administration
The Masters of Commerce and Administration (MCA) can be completed within two trimesters by substantial research leading to a thesis.
To apply to enrol in the BCA (Hons) programme you will need an appropriate BCA or another suitable degree.
Your BCA should normally have above-average performance in the prerequisite courses (or their equivalents) appropriate to your intended subject. ‘Above-average performance’ is normally taken as at least a B average in core 300-level courses; B+ or above is preferred. If you are transferring from another university, your academic background will be examined carefully to ensure that the prerequisites are satisfied.
If you do not have a BCA, your degree must have a substantial number of courses which could contribute to a BCA, including all of the BCA Core, and must contain the necessary prerequisites.
If your degree does not satisfy these requirements, you may need to complete an individual course of study designed to provide you with the background required for graduate Commerce study before applying for the programme. In many cases, the courses can be used towards a Graduate Diploma in Commerce.
To enter the MCA programme you need to have completed a BCA/(Hons) or another suitable Honours degree, or have sufficient background to satisfy the subject coordinator of your ability to proceed with the programme.
If you have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) you may wish to consider the Bachelor of Arts (Hons)/Masters of Arts programme in your subject area. Please contact the relevant subject co-ordinator to discuss your options.
