Course overview

The Bachelor of Commerce is Curtin Business School’s principal course and an internationally recognised business qualification. It offers a large and comprehensive range of business specialisations, and aims to give you transferable skills and knowledge in verbal and interpersonal communication, critical thinking and problem-solving, negotiation and time management.

This course is designed to help you gain the theory and practical skills you need to be ready for the job market. You will learn from experienced staff, have opportunities to interact with businesses and learn in real workplace scenarios.

The course comprises eight common core units; seven of these are completed in your first year of study: accounting, business law, economics, business information systems, management, marketing and communication in business.

You will complete the final common core unit, business capstone, in your final year, which gives you the opportunity to take part in a competition to run the most successful virtual company.

In your second and third years, you may choose to specialise in one or two majors. You will graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce degree regardless of which areas you choose to specialise in. You may gain work experience through work placements, vacation placements and internships.

You can study this as part of a double degree:

*Please note not all majors are offered online

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
