Commerce Courses

At its very core, commerce is the exchange of goods and services or in other words, buying and selling. This makes it a fundamental concept in business, and individuals who want to acquire and develop the skills and knowledge that will help them succeed in the business environment can benefit from a commerce degree.

Commerce courses are usually taken at the undergraduate study level over the course of three to four years, and result in a Bachelor of Commerce qualification. Core subjects in commerce degree programs include mathematics, accounting, economics, commercial law, statistics and finance. Most programs offer an option to major, specialise or earn a double degree in other areas of business such as management, marketing and international business.

 

Entrance into a commerce degree program will require proof of secondary school completion and/ or standardised test scores. Some programs may also require recommendation letters and admissions interviews. Other considerations include participation in extracurricular activities and evident proficiency in mathematics.
After completing a commerce course, graduates are expected to have gained considerable skills in quantitative and qualitative analysis, problem solving and decision-making. Career opportunities include auditor, financial advisor, financial planner, business systems analysis and management consultant.
