The business major allows you to study a combination of the other major disciplines in the Bachelor of Commerce.
It is a flexible major that allows you to design a course plan that suits your career goals and interests.
It consists of six Level-3 (third year) subjects from three or more disciplines, or study areas, within the core program. You can combine subjects from several disciplines, and with the help of a course adviser, design a course plan to suit your career goals and interests.
Business skills are essential in all industries, and a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving is desirable to most employers.
The disciplines you study in your Business major will have some impact on your future career path.
A strong Marketing focus may lead to a career as a marketing professional, and a combination of Finance and Management subjects may lead to work in the banking industry. Your training may suit organisations interested in a variety of disciplines, such as management consulting and professional services firms.
