Commerce and Finance - B2043

Commerce and Finance

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

Commerce and Finance is a great combination and a great option if you have a passion for both areas and want to keep your career options open. This double degree enables you to study complementary subjects to further enhance your employability, and develop broad business skills and specialist knowledge in finance.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Commerce, and
  • the Bachelor of Finance.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

Your career options will depend on the combination of majors and minors that you choose, and will open up a diverse range of opportunities.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Commerce and another in Finance will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to a number of industries. The combination will also give you the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.

Commerce

The Bachelor of Commerce is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete the following two parts:

Part A. Commerce specified study

This will provide you with a broad foundation for your study of commerce and expose you to several commerce disciplines. This will contribute breadth to your knowledge of commerce and address the graduate course outcomes. It will also give you the opportunity to learn more about each discipline before finalising your choice of major.

Part B. Commerce listed major (excludes Finance)

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of your major area of study. Due to the double degree structure, the Finance major is not available in this course.

Finance

The Bachelor of Finance is a comprehensive course that develops through the themes of foundation commerce knowledge, specialist discipline knowledge, capstone experience and elective breadth/depth study.

Part A. Foundation commerce knowledge

These units will provide you with a comprehensive study of economics and econometrics disciplines and the impact they have on multi-discipline decision-making in organisations. The units consider the impact on the business, professional and public policy communities.

Part B. Specialist discipline knowledge

These units will develop your capacity as a critical and creative professional who is able to apply your knowledge of finance to provide discipline based solutions to commerce. Units contained within the discipline specialisation may meet the requirements for professional accreditation bodies.

Part C. Capstone experience
