Master of Commerce (MCom)

The Master of Commerce (MCom) can be taken as either a 180-point programme by coursework or as a 120- point thesis programme in Marketing or International Business. 

The 120-point thesis requires the completion of substantial independent research project (including a literature review, data collection/analysis, findings) presented as a thesis (about 30,000 - 40,000 words). The 180-point MCom in Marketing or International Business by coursework follows on from a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) with 300-level courses in the same subject, or a similar degree.

Admission requirements

  • BCom degree including either IBUS 305 and 312 or 45 points of 300-level Marketing, with a grade average of B+ or better; or
  • BCom(Hons) in International Business or Marketing with Second Class Honours or better; or
  • suitable alternative degree (or the equivalent in extensive and appropriate practical, professional or scholarly experience).
