Bachelors of Commerce / Economics

Gain in-depth knowledge of accounting, financial management, banking and business analytics, along with an understanding of how people make decisions and organise societies, and how to predict human behaviour.

During your commerce studies you'll complete a range of compulsory courses that cover concepts relevant across the financial services sector, including topics such as accounting, information systems, economics, business law and management.
