Why study this course

This program is designed to prepare students for the challenges in the global business environment. Students will study foundation areas of accounting, economics, business law, management, marketing and technology. Through specialised study, in their chosen major, students will gain theory and practical skills needed to be confident and industry-ready. The following major combinations are available with disciplines in the Humanities: Advertising and Creative Advertising; Graphic Design; Business Law and International Relations; Economics and International Relations; Public Relations and Journalism. The first year of this course provides a foundation consisting of a set of common core units which includes units from a range of disciplines. This provides a basis for more concentrated study in a chosen major. Students will have the choice of a combination of two majors, or a single major and an elective stream. This elective stream will provide them with the possibility of taking further study in the same or another discipline. Wherever possible, the final unit, Business Capstone 301, will be taken in a student's final semester of study. This unit involves small teams of students from each CBS undergraduate School (Accounting, Business Law and Taxation, Economics and Finance, Information Systems, Management and Marketing) combining their knowledge and skills in a multi-disciplinary virtual business project. One aim of the unit is to integrate and synthesise in an applied way all the learning experiences obtained by students in their undergraduate study programs. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Commerce from Curtin University students have a range of career opportunities depending on their chosen field of study. Most industries and organisations, whether private or public, local or international, employ commerce graduates.
