The University of Western Australia, through the cross-disciplinary expertise of the Law School and the Business School, is providing the opportunity for graduates to attain two sought-after qualifications through the combined Master of International Commercial Law and Master of Commerce.

Suited to both those engaged in full-time employment, or recent graduates, students acquire both qualifications in a shorter time frame and at a lesser expense than if they were undertaking the two courses individually.

Why combine the two?

By undertaking both degrees you will learn how to conduct commerce and gain and understanding of the legal framework for how commerce is regulated, enabling you to gain a 360-degree perspective and positioning you as an authority in the field.

You will graduate with a comprehensive skill set enabling you to work in a range of areas of commercial activity, including but not limited to shipping, sales and trade financing.

Furthermore, through the granting of advanced standing, students who complete both the Master of International Commercial Law and the Master of Commerce, will do so after two years of full-time study instead of the 2.5 years it would take otherwise.

Course structure

Students complete 10 units in the Master of Commerce and six units in the Master of International Commercial Law. Students will receive credit for the remaining units in the two degrees by double accreditation of selected units.
