Meet Bachelor of Commerce (Economics) student, Cher Guo

"I first discovered economics in high school, and I really loved it. From that point the Bachelor of Commerce became my goal. In my first year at Melbourne, I got the chance to explore a range of different subjects including accounting, management and marketing. This really confirmed my love of economics and finance, so I decided to go deeper into those two fields in my second year."

Meet Bachelor of Commerce (Actuarial Studies) graduate and Master of Engineering student, Dhanuka Nanayakkara

“The Bachelor of Commerce gave me the chance to learn about areas outside of my specialisation like finance and economics, which was really interesting. You also get to be around some incredible minds at Melbourne - they don’t exist everywhere,” says Dhanuka.
“I've always enjoyed working on electronics or computers and I was always really into maths, so I wanted to complete a Commerce degree with actuarial studies and a Diploma in Mathematics. The plan was to work for a bit once I graduated and come back to study engineering after a few years.”
