Bachelor of Business and Commerce / Bachelor of Information Technology

University of Southern Queensland USQ

This double degree provides students with knowledge and practical experience across the business, commerce and IT sectors and gives students an advantage within the workforce. The students' qualifications will bring a competitive edge in the eyes of possible employers who are increasingly needing digitally savvy employees. Students will gain a broad range of skills with the aim of helping to become a versatile and adaptable employee, equally adept at addressing both technical and business issues. When graduating with a double degree, students will receive a separate testamur (official certificate) for each degree and will be able to complete the double degree in less time than if the two degrees were studied separately.
