The Bachelor of Commerce allows you to choose from a variety of business specialisations to suit your individual passions and career goals. Within the Bachelor of Commerce degree you can choose to study one area of specialisation (a single major) or two (a major combination). Either way, your degree will take the same amount of time to complete and you will graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce degree within three years if you study in full-time mode. In the final semester of the Bachelor of Commerce, students must complete the Business Capstone unit. This is an opportunity for final year business students to put their skills into practice by sending them into a simulated business world.  The knowledge, skills and challenges offered by the Bachelor of Commerce degree will prepare you for whatever career path you choose, anywhere in the world.

Double Degrees

Studying for two degrees at once means you’ll graduate with double the amount of qualifications, but it won’t take you double the time.

A double degree increases your skills and knowledge across two different learning areas and gives you more career opportunities and choices. You’ll study units from both courses, but the condensed program structure means it may take only a year or two longer than a single degree.
