About Bachelor of Commerce (Level 7) at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology

Choose a single or double major in Accounting, Management or Marketing.

Gain the personal and professional skills you need to be successful in a wide variety of demanding and evolving business environments, whether locally, nationally or internationally.

The first year of the degree will provide you with a solid foundation in business and management. In years 2 and 3 you will specialise in your chosen major, Accounting, Management or Marketing for a single major, or two of these if you choose to do a double major. A single major qualification can be completed over 3 years’ full time or equivalent for part time study, for a double major you will need to allow 3 and a half years’ full time study or equivalent to complete your qualification.

The Bachelor of Commerce programme is a blend of both theoretical and practical, with an emphasis on applied knowledge and skills. With any of the three majors you will develop general management skills (e.g. communication, presentation, interpersonal and problem solving skills) in addition to the specific business skills for your major.

Our Bachelor of Commerce is strongly industry orientated. We are continually seeking local and national industry input into the programme structure, content and direction. A Local Advisory Committee assist the Programme Area in assessing the continued relevance of our degree. Industry practitioners and business experts often come in as guest lecturers. The project and assessments you will complete during the degree are continually assessed and developed to make sure you will graduate with relevant skills to the local and regional economy.
