Course content

A Master of Commerce degree will allow you to learn more about your chosen subject area, critically view the world and carry out an independent piece of research. These knowledge, skills and competencies mean MCom graduates are well-prepared for professional roles and business consulting.
If you have been following the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA) programme (now the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand), study in the MCom programme counts as one year of professional experience.
Students who have qualified for a BCom(Hons) or equivalent may be admitted to the MCom by thesis only in that major (one year, worth 120 points).

The Master of Commerce graduate
As an MCom graduate you will be able to:
*demonstrate higher level in-depth knowledge and understanding of contemporary thought and developments within your specific research area
*evaluate the implications of your own research findings for the wider body of relevant academic literature
*plan and undertake independent academic research that shows a sound understanding of ethical practice
*synthesise academic literature and communicate research findings, both orally and in written form, consistent with academics working in your chosen discipline.

Qualification structure and duration
The Master of Commerce degree consists of 180 points of which between 90-120 points is coursework (between six and nine courses), and a 90 point thesis or a 60 point dissertation.

The MCom take 12–18 months full-time or 18–36 months part-time to complete. Enrolment is normally full-time unless the Dean of Commerce approves part-time study.
