Subjects in the Graduate Diploma of Commerce and Master of Commerce provide stimulating assignments that have both a theoretical base and a strong practical emphasis. Most assessments are designed to enable students to apply their learning to the workplace. These assignments offer tremendous learning opportunities, enabling students to test their knowledge and ideas and receive expert feedback. It is this focus on application, experimentation and feedback that is essential to developing good business and leadership skills.

For example, assignments may require students to act as a consultant or business manager to identify business opportunities and/or problems and develop recommendations to overcome these challenges.

Throughout the Graduate Diploma of Commerce, you may undertake assignments such as developing a strategic marketing plan, identifying change management problems and recommending solutions that may be implemented, and developing business strategies for the organisation.

Residential schools are a great way to practise what you are learning in a hands-on environment, and to meet your lecturers and classmates.

Some online courses include a residential school, where you will attend a CSU campus during certain sessions throughout your course.

The following subjects may have a residential school component for online students:

FIN560 Financial Planning
LAW517 Mediation: Processes and Uses
LAW519 Negotiation Skills

From the early stages of your degree, you can apply for a range of international programs through CSU Global. You could take a session or two on exchange at one of CSU’s partner institutions across the world, go on a study tour during the holidays, or complete some of your practical placements in an unique location.

Are you after a unique CSU study experience? By participating in a CSU Global international study program you can gain a new perspective on where your degree can take you, and even complete your degree that little bit faster. CSU Global has many options available to fit with your course, interests and study needs.

The Master of Commerce (MCom) is an articulated set with a Graduate Diploma subset which provides both entry and exit points.

Each subject has a value of 8 points unless otherwise stated.

ONLINE EDUCATION

Master of Commerce (12 subjects)

The twelve subject (96 point) Master of Commerce consists of subjects chosen from the pool of approved MCom subjects. Students may elect to tailor their degree to specific discipline areas by completing one or more of the designated specialisations, or may elect to study any twelve subjects from across the program.

Subjects that are counted towards one specialisation may not be counted again towards another. Students must contact the Course Director to receive approval for an alternate subject.

Students who complete one or more of the designated specialisations will graduate with the specialisation names on their testamur. 

Master of Commerce (16 subjects)

The 128 point Master course consists of sixteen subjects. This extended version of the MCom is targeted at international students who may have completed a tertiary qualification which is not recognised as equivalent to an Australian bachelor degree. These students may be admitted to the Graduate Diploma of Commerce on the basis of a combination of prior qualifications and work experience.  On completion of the Graduate Diploma in Commerce students can transfer to the Master of Commerce (16 subjects) program with credit for all subjects successfully completed

The course structure for the 16 subject MCom is similar to the structure listed for the 12 subject MCom.

Students who complete one or more of the designated specialisations will graduate with the Specialisation names on their testamur.

Graduate Diploma of Commerce (8 subjects)

The course consists of eight subjects chosen from the pool of approved MCom subjects. Students may enter directly into the Graduate Diploma or exit with that award from the MCom.

Because of the flexibility of the course requirements, there is no prescribed enrolment pattern. Students may choose the order in which they undertake subjects, depending upon the availability of subjects and the meeting of pre-requisites, particularly in the students' chosen specialisation.

Graduation requirements

As a CSU student, throughout your course you have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to your discipline. This ongoing development will enable you to effectively participate in your course and graduate prepared to enter the workforce.

Minimum Graduation Requirements

To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 64 points (the equivalent of eight 8 point subjects).

International students

Gain an internationally recognised qualification with CSU at one of our vibrant regional campuses, or study online from the comfort of your own home - anywhere in the world!

You can also study accounting, business and information technology courses at a CSU Study Centre in Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

Browse through the tabs below for more information or visit our International website to discover more about an Australian university experience like no other.

Please note: if you choose to study online with CSU, the course study mode will not meet necessary requirements for granting Australian student visas.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success. Minimum requirements can vary from country to country, so please take some time to review our entry requirements  before starting your application. If you cannot find the requirements for your country please contact us.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on tuition and other fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, our international support services can make all the difference. From managing visa requirements to study support, and career advice, we’ve got you covered and our friendly staff will help make your university experience one you will never forget.

At CSU, we work with trained international recruitment agents in more than 40 countries to help you find the course and study option that is right for you. Our agents can assist you to apply for study either on campus in Australia or online. Depending on your country of citizenship you may be required to apply to CSU via an agent. Visit our International agents page for more information.
