Membership requirements to Professional Associations vary, but will usually require you to have completed certain subjects in the Bachelor of Commerce, such as Corporate Law, Principles of Business Law and Taxation Law 1.  Full membership requirements may include relevant work experience and/or further study.

Your major structure

In your first and second year you will complete core subjects that are prerequisites for your major, as well as breadth subjects and some of the subjects that are required if you are seeking accreditation as an accountant.

In your final year, you will complete a mix of major subjects and commerce electives plus the last of the three subjects required for accreditation.

Breadth studies

Breadth is a unique feature of the Melbourne Model. It gives you the chance to explore subjects outside of commerce, developing new perspectives and learning to collaborate with others who have different strengths and interests — just as you will in your future career.

Some of our students use breadth to explore creative interests or topics they have always been curious about. Others used breadth to improve their career prospects by complementing their major with a language, communication skills or business expertise.
