Course overview

Lead a business to financial success

Develop the skills needed for a successful career in management. In this double major you’ll gain an understanding of how companies, government and households work, and develop the technical skills needed for the management area of the banking and finance industry. You’ll study key challenges facing practicing managers and develop skills in communication, program solving, planning, organising, managing change and working cooperatively.

During your first year of the Bachelor of Commerce you’ll complete common core units which will provide an introduction to the various aspects of business. You do not need to make a final decision on a single or combined major until your second semester.

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