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.

Studying a double major with Federation Business School gives you the option of further specialisation of your degree, making you more employable in the graduate market place. Chances are, you'll be offered work directly from your placement, like many of our graduates. You might choose a career as an accountant, stockbroker, a financial planner or a banker.

At FedUni, we believe in our students having the 'real-life' experience to back up their knowledge. You will undertake a practical placement, internship or project and receive first-hand insights into how companies work.
