Master of Commerce - Applied Finance

Develop specialist knowledge in applied finance, professional accounting and information systems to make confident decisions in your career. The Master of Commerce (32 units) has been designed to equip you with the know-how to move into senior management or financial roles with a highly regarded formal qualification.

You’ll learn in a contemporary learning environment and gain practical experience by accessing our state-of-the-art Bloomberg Trading Room and by participating in the Student Managed Investment Fund project. You'll also be encouraged to consider ethical behaviour in commerce and corporate social responsibility.

As a master's student, you can undertake 2 fields of study or additional research electives, which may provide a pathway to higher degrees by research. This program does not assume prior knowledge or training in the available fields of study. If you’ve studied in a related discipline, consider if each field of study will extend your expertise and support your career plans.

The courses in this field of study combine the theoretical frameworks for success in financial management with practical skills in analysis and risk assessment. You'll also develop a strong understanding of factors that influence financial decision-making in the global market. 

These newfound skills will be highly sought after, and your capabilities for strong financial management will help your organisation increase profitability and sustainability. Many graduates enjoy careers as investment banking analysts and managers in financial institutions and government regulatory agencies, while others establish their own businesses.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

The Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE) offers English language courses that can help you meet UQ's English language requirements.

Package offers:

If you meet all the academic entry requirements for your preferred UQ program, but need help to meet the English language requirements, you may be eligible for a package offer.

A package offer includes:

  • an English language course at UQ's Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE), and
  • a conditional offer of admission to a UQ program.

When you apply for your UQ program, indicate that you want to apply for a package offer. Don't apply directly to ICTE.

You still need to provide evidence of your current English language ability (e.g. IELTS or another recognised test). We will assess your skills and place you in the best English course for your level.

Depending on your current English level you will be offered a place in one of the following English language pathways:

  • Bridging English (BE) – study for between 10 and 30 weeks. You can use the final assessment to satisfy the English language entry requirements for your UQ program.

Entry requirements:

You need to meet the academic requirements for entry to the UQ program and be within the specified range of English language proficiency for that program. Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 or recognised equivalent for most programs, with some programs requiring a higher level.

  • General English (GE) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) – study for between 5 and 45 weeks. Take an approved English language test at ICTE at the end of the course to show you meet UQ's English language entry requirements.

Entry requirements:

General English (GE): IELTS 4.0 to IELTS 4.5

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) has three entry points – IELTS 5.0, 5.5 or 6.0. 

Bridging English (BE): Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 (or recognised equivalent) for most UQ programs, with some UQ programs requiring a higher level.
