About this course

The Bachelor of Commerce program prepare students for a career in accounting, banking, financial management, information systems and management.Compulsory courses in the degree build a solid foundation of business skills that they will apply to many decisions and issues in the contemporary business environment. These core skills are then further developed in the second and third years as they specialise by undertaking one or two majors. Commerce majors are in accounting, business information systems and finance.

The Business Information Systems major is designed for those who wish to obtain in-depth training in the analysis and management of information in a business environment. The major aims to develop skills relevant to a Business Analyst job profile and thus provides students with business analysis skills, including those related to data analytics and business information security, and facilitates the development of advanced Information Systems skills that enable students to advise on organisational information requirements and related strategy. Through completing the program, students gain skills to understand the business context, elicit organisational requirements, and design, develop and manage systems involving business data. The program thus equips students with a broad knowledge of business and technology issues to develop well-rounded Information Systems professionals.
