The Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) now has three options: accounting, finance, or economics. The Newcastle Business School recommends that prospective Honours students contact them at the conclusion of the semester preceding the one they intend to enroll in.
With a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Newcastle, you may advance from the classroom to a corporate boardroom.
Also, when you study commerce, you have a variety of career options. For example, you could work for a multinational consultancy where you would assess the financial future and viability of businesses or for the Reserve Bank, where you would offer economic forecasts that would affect official interest rates.
Besides that, every commerce major will gain knowledge of how the global financial, legal, political, and economic systems interact. You'll investigate how these factors impact the current business settings in Australia and around the world.
