    Key Features:

    You are encouraged to combine the Bachelor of Commerce with other degrees to form double degrees or to combine the Bachelor of Commerce with Laws for a combined degree. Double degrees give you a wonderful opportunity to study a range of discipline areas. For example, a Bachelor of Commerce (with an International Business major ) and a Bachelor of Arts (with a language major) is a passport to world business. A Bachelor of Arts with a Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) gives you a deep insight into why we buy products. The Bachelor of Commerce is a flexible business degree to prepare you for a range of business careers. The degree is designed with a broad foundation year then an indepth study of one or two discipline major(s). Design a double degree to suit your interests.
