Master of Commerce with an International Business major

The course provides excellent structure, enabling students to understand big business strategy from a detailed viewpoint. This is perfect if you wish to build a career in consulting, or aspire towards an upper management position. The degree also allows enough flexibility in order to specialise in specific areas of business or other subjects. For example, I specialised in Marketing and Sociology. Studying Sociology gave me something different to what many people get out of a Business degree, encouraging me to question the conventions upon which we base our everyday lives.

I would recommend the International Business major to anyone who wants more from a Business degree, because it takes the boring out of Business.

"At Macquarie, you don't just get a degree, but you gain experience and exposure that helps you put that degree into practice. Programs such as Global Leadership Program and Professional and Community Engagement are what separate Macquarie from other universities. They have given me the opportunity to work on projects and travel to places that I never would have thought my degree could take me." – Luke Dominish
