    Major overview

    Overview

    To be successful in business, you have to understand how each component works. The Business major combines subjects from several disciplines, and allows you to develop skills you can use in any industry.

    This major is flexible and ensures you can design a course plan that suits your career goals and interest

    It allows you to combine three or more disciplines (or study areas) from within the Commerce degree. For example, you could choose Accounting, Economics and Finance to have a holistic understanding of money and finances.

    During second and third year you will continue to explore the broader concepts of business and will have the opportunity to undertake studies from multiple disciplines within the faculty.

    Business skills are essential in all industries, and a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving is desirable to most employers.
