What will I learn?
The Bachelor of Commerce (B Com (International)), which includes a one year international exchange component, is a highly valued business qualification. The program is designed for students who want to complement their business degree with international studies (including Asian studies, European studies or languages), and also for those students who want to align their degree with their interests and careers ambitions in accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing or information systems. It is assumed that students have a certain level of knowledge in advanced mathematics in order to cope well with the mathematical or statistical component of a business degree. If you are successful in obtaining a place without this assumed knowledge, you are strongly encouraged to consider studying a Mathematics Bridging Course before starting your degree.
