Bachelor of Computer Science / Bachelor of Commerce

Monash University

Big data is a new frontier in the commercial world, as organisations look for people with the ability to extract data from complex systems and analyse it to affect real change. Combining Commerce and Computer Science gives students the skills to harness big data and commercialise digital innovations or intellectual property. This course leads to two separate degrees and students will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or a combination of the two. Students will have a wide variety of career opportunities. They will develop the technical skills required to work across the computer science and IT sectors and the commerce skills to pursue roles in project management, systems management or data analytics.

Monash is one of the world's top 100 universities. According to the Global Employability Rankings, leaders from the world's most successful companies consistently rate Monash as a preferred university from which to hire graduates.

But while our rankings and reputation mean we can compete with the 'traditional' universities, we don't plan on becoming one. We're a young university, with a proud history of risk-taking and challenging the status quo. We think that gives us the best of both worlds — the qualities and reputation of an old-school university and the openness and ambition of youth.
