Commerce and Music - B2022

Who said creativity and commerce don't mix? Musicians usually have a good head for maths and numbers and logical thinking, so why not bring them together, with a double degree course in Commerce and Music.

With this combination you can follow your passion, and gain essential skills that will help you take your music career to the next level, or pursue the commercial aspects of music.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

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

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.

You will receive a high-quality tertiary music education, specialising in performance, composition and creative music technology, or popular music. You'll combine this with a major in commerce, such as actuarial studies, finance, marketing science or management studies, perhaps to help you manage business requirements either for yourself or across the music industry.

A degree in Commerce and another in Music opens up a variety of flexible options for becoming part of the global music industry, whether by contributing to it using your musical talents, or developing your professional skills in commercial roles such as managing record labels, artists, not-for-profit organisations or cultural events.
