Commerce is important across all areas of business, from mining to manufacturing, retail to restaurants, tourism to teaching. Students will study a range of core areas focusing on commerce and may also include a major in accounting, law, economics and finance. FedUni will help students get practical experience in financial organisations and departments during the degree, so that when they graduate, students will not only have the skills but also the experience to secure work. The Bachelor of Commerce will prepare students for a career that keeps them thinking, allows them to travel and lets them work across different industries throughout their career. As a generalist degree, it is particularly attractive if students want to experience many different commerce courses rather than select a specific pathway. Majors are available in Economics and Finance, Law and Accounting. Double majors are also available in Accounting and Law or Economics and Finance and Law. This program may require participation in a range of WIL/work experience type activities and these will negotiated with students individually. The time component is variable.
