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.

To explore your options, start with the Commerce degree page.

Student stories

  • Belinda Jansen Van Vuuren

    Belinda Jansen Van Vuuren

    Master of Project Management

    "The support from ECU's lecturers, learning consultants and dedicated librarians was amazing."

    I chose ECU as they offered a lot of support and this degree has not only been developed in consultation with industry experts, but is also accredited by the Australian Institute of Project Management, and the Project Management Institute.

    The support from ECU’s lecturers, learning consultants and dedicated librarians was amazing. Other than enhancing my project management skills, this degree has taught me valuable time management skills, taught me to think outside the box and seek better solutions, to be proactive and lead a team while having limited authority to do so. My biggest achievement was completing my degree with a high distinction average. Being a mentor to several 1st year students in my final semester was also a very rewarding experience for me.

  • Aaron Tucker

    Aaron Tucker

    ECU Finance graduate

    "I chose ECU because it offered fully online units with fantastic student support, which was ideal when I was working full time at the start of my degree"

    My entire world view has been expanded by studying at ECU. I had no real idea how complicated Finance was before I started. The further into my studies I have progressed, the more I have leant on things I picked up in the first year introductory classes. The skills I have picked up during my course have always had a compounding effect and I now feel comfortable to market myself to employers.

    The lecturers are deeply knowledgeable and very helpful when you have concerns or questions. I have met many fellow students through my studies that I now call friends.

    I can't recommend ECU highly enough, especially given their flexibility and world class facilities.
