Meg Gerrard UCE group at table

Start from a core foundation, tailor your degree and even study abroad. These are just some of the ways that studying commerce at UC allows you to put more strings to your bow.

Build your business base first

The UC BCom only requires five core, first year courses. They provide you with a strong foundation in business areas covering accounting, economics, management, information systems and statistics. From there you have the freedom to build up your degree with courses that excite and inspire you.

Customise your degree

By combining majors and minors in commerce and non-commerce subjects you tailor your degree to suit your interests and aspirations. You’ll also create a point-of difference that makes you more competitive in the job market.

If you are studying a non-Commerce degree, then consider adding a 4th year of postgraduate study through our Taught Master’s degrees, to add professional business skills and further increase your attractiveness to employers.

Expand your horizons and study abroad

UC has over 60 partner universities around the world. You can take your studies overseas through study tours such as MGMT 228 and ECON 228, and the UC Exchange Programme. Combining your studies with an OE gives you the best of both worlds. Learning about other countries and cultures, and perhaps even gaining a new language is all part of doing business in an international setting.

“It’s been really good to study business because I’ve had exposure to a wide variety of different subjects. In first year, I was able to test the waters with economics, accounting, marketing and management. That flexibility helped me figure out what I wanted to do whilst I was studying rather than having to make a decision before I came to uni.

You have the freedom to go in a totally different direction from what you’re expecting, if that’s what you want to do. The opportunities are incredible.”
