A language minor could make a major difference

Our Bachelor of Commerce degree offers you a fantastic choice of 14 major subjects. Each major will give you a solid grounding in a specific area, e.g. Finance, or Human resource Management.

But to broaden your employability prospects and prepare you to be more 'world ready', you should consider adding one of our language minors to your chosen major.

For example, you might choose to major in International Business and add a minor in Mandarin or Japanese to really give you an edge if you’re working overseas.
