Course sub-headings

Course overview

Develop your passion for commerce and unlock creative solutions for tomorrow's business challenges by studying Deakin's Bachelor of Commerce. With authentic, practical learning experiences including the ability to research and resolve real commercial and community issues, Deakin's Bachelor of Commerce is at the forefront of providing you with the skills and experience to navigate your professional future.

Our globally accredited commerce degree gives you the freedom to customise your course with a specialisation. While specialisations allow you to narrow your focus on an area of interest, opportunities like overseas study tours, exchange programs and sought-after internships broaden your horizons as well as your skills. Be prepared to build your career as a business leader in big organisations by networking with leading companies from your first year and build professional relationships that you'll carry with you through your entire career.

Want to study a degree that sets you up for a successful career in finance, accounting, management or marketing?

Graduate with a sought-after skill set built around three pillars relating to the everyday, practical challenges of modern businesses:

  • financial understanding
  • market knowledge
  • management and professional skills.

Professional development opportunities start from day one. In your first year, you’ll work with the same programs and tools industry professionals use while building core business skills you’ll carry with you through your entire career. From second year you get to choose your area of specialisation. Tailor the course to your interests and career goals by honing your professional expertise in one of the following majors:

  • accounting
  • economics
  • finance
  • financial planning
  • food and agribusiness
  • human resource management
  • management
  • management information systems
  • marketing.

This can be complemented with a minor to enhance your employability, including:

  • accounting
  • agribusiness
  • business analytics
  • economics
  • event management
  • finance
  • global studies
  • human resource management
  • international trade
  • marketing
  • professional practice
  • project management
  • retail management
  • social entrepreneurship
  • taxation regulation
  • wealth management.

Deakin Business School’s highly developed work-integrated learning (WIL) program gives you the platform to gain valuable work experience that counts as credit towards your degree. Every commerce student at Deakin has access to WIL opportunities. This practical experience and the networking opportunities they provide can make all the difference when you graduate and are applying for jobs. Our curriculum is complemented by a range of experiential learning opportunities including:

  • mentoring
  • volunteering
  • consulting
  • internships. 

These hands-on experiences allow you to engage with real businesses, like the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian Taxation Office, KPMG, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Bupa and Cherry Energy. Work on industry projects, build long-lasting relationships and get a taste for your future career. Because employers value Deakin commerce students’ practical skills and business mindset, it’s not uncommon for graduates to find employment at the companies they connect with throughout the course.

You can also improve your global employability skills in teamwork and intercultural communication by gaining international experience across Asia, Europe or North America through:

  • overseas internships
  • study tours
  • exchange programs.
