Master of Commerce - Máster en Comercio
After extensive consultation with internal and external stakeholders, both international and domestic, the revised Master of Commerce (Extension) emphasises industry and practical orientation to assist students in gaining general business knowledge whilst still allowing for specialisation in a wide range of disciplines.
The Master of Commerce (Extension) is designed with flexibility for graduate students who wish to transition from a non-commerce degree into a commerce/business discipline or who wish to transition from one discipline in a prior commerce degree to another.
It provides students with a fundamental grounding in commerce/business; allows students to pursue an in-depth study of their chosen discipline; ensures students are equipped with a breadth and depth of generic and disciplinary knowledge and skills, which can be applied to a range of complex business problems and contexts over time; and allows students to place their disciplinary specialisation in the wider context of commercial activity.
