Program summary

A business double that adds up.

On top of your commerce degree you’ll also get to major in a business specialisation such as financial planning, marketing or management, giving you that extra edge when it comes to graduate employment.

You’ll earn two degrees in just four years of study instead of six. Our capstone course develops your understanding in corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. Our combined program includes an accounting major accredited by the Certified Practising Accountants Australia (CPAA).

Develop your personal skills and study a semester overseas while earning credit towards your degree. You’ll also have an opportunity to undertake an internship in your final year, consisting of 96 hours and organised for you by our staff. Our graduates have found roles in firms such as KPMG and Ernst and Young as a direct result of their internship.
