Certificate in Commerce
The Certificate in Commerce (CertCom) is an option if you want to add commerce content alongside your non-commerce degree, or do not want to study the full Bachelor of Commerce degree.
Certificate in Commerce – example degree structure
Each block represents a 15-point course. However, some courses may be 30 points or more.
This diagram is an example only – other combinations are possible. For specific course requirements, see the Regulations for the Certificate in Commerce.
The Certificate is made up of 60 points (four standard courses) at 100, 200, and/or 300-level, from select Bachelor of Commerce subjects.
The CertCom can be completed in 6 months full-time, or up to 4 years part-time.
Credit from your completed courses can be transferred to the Bachelor of Commerce (and some other degrees), as long as you have not graduated with the Certificate beforehand.
The Certificate in Commerce is good preparation towards the full Bachelor of Commerce degree.
As a commerce graduate, you could work in numerous and varied roles from being an accountant, economist and financial analyst, through to being an operations manager, marketer, and information systems specialist. You could become a manager, consultant, or be your own boss.
