Commerce at the University of Newcastle

"One of the major advantages of studying a commerce degree is the available cadet-ships and internships" - Leah

The Bachelor of Commerce is designed to help you fast-track your career in accounting, economics or finance. This degree provides practical skills and a broad understanding of the international business environment.

When you study commerce at the University of Newcastle, you will be equipped to make a smooth transition from the classroom to the boardroom by acquiring skills that are valued by employers. You will develop strong teamwork, critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.

A sense of global citizenship is imparted through international case studies and cross-cultural analysis. This will give you insight into the interplay between the financial, legal, political and economic systems and how these factors influence the contemporary business environment in Australia and across the globe.

Offered through the Faculty of Business and Law, our commerce degree is designed with a high degree of flexibility to cater for a diverse range of interests and ambitions, including human resources management, information systems in business, international business, management, marketing, logistics and supply chain management and tourism.

Commerce graduates go on to exciting, stimulating and lucrative careers in the fields of accounting, auditing, consulting, stockbroking, business analysis and academia. These opportunities can be pursued in a wide range of business, government department and not-for-profit organisations.

Duty tutors are assigned to each of the first year courses to provide drop-in assistance to students.

All business and law students also have exclusive access to the Student Learning Space (SLS), a fun new facility designed to help you fulfil your potential. SLS is about enhancing your learning experience – find a place to study, work on assignments and group tasks, and participate in PASS.
