Why study Bachelor of Business and Commerce?

The Gippsland campus offerings of the Bachelor of Business and Commerce is only available to students entering via an approved pathway program.

Commerce is the cornerstone of the modern economy. It covers the economic, political, legal, social, cultural, and technological principles that exist around the world. Our degree offers a world-class education in these areas. Four of our commerce students represented Australia in the 2011 international final of the Global Management Challenge.

The global understanding you develop will open up a world of career possibilities. Poh Nean, who studied business and commerce at Monash University Malaysia, now works in Kuala Lumpur for a team of IT detectives who protect businesses from cyber hackers.

This course consists of seven core business and commerce units, an eight-unit major from a list of approved majors, and eight open electives. It is possible to form a second major from your open electives.

Study areas

ACCOUNTING

Accounting is the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. It can be done on a large scale - for international corporations - or for individuals or for any sized business in-between. There are agreed national and international rules and regulations that govern the work of accountants. Accounting allows a company to analyse its financial performance, and report important statistics such as profit and loss to managers and shareholders.

BANKING AND FINANCE

Finance is often defined simply as the management of money. This can relate to the finances of individuals and families, of businesses, and of governments. It can include consideration of investment risks. Retail, investment and other banks offer financial services which are designed to assist with money management, making them an important part of a financial system.

BUSINESS LAW

Graduates in Business Law typically provide in-house advice that enables organisations to operate effectively in the complex legal environment that governs business activities. They deal with the business implications of national and state laws relating to areas such as contracts, trade practices, employment, insurance, wills and estate planning, and consumer and creditor protection as well as real estate, tax, and the environment.

E-BUSINESS E-Business is the ability to perform transactions involving the exchange of goods or services between two or more parties using electronic tools and techniques. The increased availability of computers and communications, the expansion of the Internet and online services, and the drive toward global competitiveness has all contributed to the growth of e-business.

ECONOMICS

Economists analyse the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. They focus on how individuals, households, firms and governments interact and how economies work. Microeconomics examines the behaviour of buyers and sellers in the economy while macroeconomics analyses the entire economy and issues affecting it, including unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and monetary and fiscal policy.

ECONOMETRICS AND BUSINESS STATISTICS

Careers in the business world that use quantitative skills include the financial sector (stockbrokers, the insurance industry, finance companies, banks - eg developing models for investment opportunities), the manufacturing sector (eg providing quality control), and market research. Opportunities in the public sector include economic modelling, policy evaluation, and research into industry development.

FINANCE AND MACROECONOMICS

Finance and macroeconomics is an interdisciplinary field of study combining economics and finance. The issues of how financial markets impact on the economy, and how the economy influences financial markets, are important for business and public policy decision-making.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Human resource professionals are typically responsible for making sure a workplace is productive, harmonious and safe. They manage staff recruitment and salary payments, and provide managers with expert advice on conflict resolution and staff retention.

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS

International business covers all business transactions involving participants from two or more countries. It is a field of management which deals with the special features of moving goods, services, capital, personnel, information and technology between countries.

MANAGEMENT

If you are interested in a business degree you will probably want, at some point in your career, to move into a management role. Managers plan, organise, lead, and control. Good managers are essential to the successful running of any business no matter what its size.

MARKETING

Identifying and satisfying customer needs profitably form the basis of marketing. It includes creating, communicating, delivering and exchanging goods and services that have value to potential customers and, often, building strong relationships between an organisation and its customers. It can include market research, product development and communication strategies as well as product delivery logistics.

  • Career opportunities

    There are few fields of study that open up as many career opportunities as business and commerce. Our graduates work all over the world. They work in banking, media, finance, politics, management, accounting and insurance. They work for the government and major corporations. The range of career options depends on the subjects chosen but, given we offer open electives and a business and commerce specialisation, graduates will be able to explore many career paths.

    Examples of roles that graduates can pursue include operations manager for a small-to-medium enterprise, stockbroker for a national stock exchange, human resources officer for a small-to-medium enterprise, self-employed financial advisor, entrepreneur running their own business, or business analyst for a bank or financial institution.
