Commerce and Information Technology - B2025

Commerce and Information Technology

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

Commerce and information technology are inseparable in the modern world, and the need for more sophisticated technology is intense. People with the commercial skills to understand and implement technology are in high demand, and with these two degrees you will have these skills.

You could:

  • combine Accounting and Software Development to create software programs for accountants
  • mix Games Development and Marketing Science to understand the demands of selling a video game franchise
  • pair Business Information Systems with Econometrics or Actuarial Science to develop expertise in the growing field of data analytics
  • learn how to commercialise information technology services and products.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • Bachelor of Commerce, and
  • Bachelor of Information Technology.

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.

This double degree course gives you a wide variety of career opportunities. Depending on the major combinations that you choose, you will develop the skills to work across key areas of information technology, or use your IT skills to work for small and large businesses or corporations such as banks and insurance firms, marketing or communication agencies, or across the government or healthcare industries.

Your combination of skills could also lead to roles in project management, systems management or data analytics. The blend of Information Technology and Commerce will ensure you have the technical skills required in IT supported with a solid business education that will lead to a successful career.

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.

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

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.

B. Commerce listed major

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.

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

A. Information technology specified study

This will provide you with foundation skills and knowledge for your IT education and ensure a breadth of understanding of IT and its applications in organizations and society.

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one area of Information technology. You will develop the practical and theoretical skills and knowledge in your chosen major needed to successfully plan, develop, implement and evaluate information products and systems.
