Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Economics & Finance)
Whether you see yourself working for the government, a company or even your own business, this degree will teach you the ins and outs of financial systems and strategies that make the business world tick whilst also giving you the foundation skills to grow wealth, manage investments and give financial advice.
You will learn how to help companies, government departments and private investments profit through economic and financial management strategies. As well as focusing on the hard-edged courses needed for professional accreditation with the major professional bodies.
