Comments about Bachelor of Commerce - On Campus - Robina - Queensland

    The Bachelor of Commerce is an exciting program for those interested in the financial side of business. It is specifically designed to prepare graduates for professional careers in finance, accounting, business economics, real estate and property development. Students are encouraged to take a second major.
  • Practical experience
    Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree.
