The Bachelor of Commerce is an ideal pathway to a professional career
Employment opportunities span the globe in a variety of industries including the business, government and not-for-profit sectors. The degree provides you with the knowledge and technical skills you need to succeed in the career of your choice.
I selected the Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Melbourne in Year 12 knowing it would provide me with a broad set of skills which I could apply in any field. The university name was also an asset I knew I could take with me into job interviews. I have thoroughly enjoyed my overall experience and it will be sad to leave – four years has been and gone so quickly! – but I know I am prepared for the challenges I will face when I begin my career next year, as a graduate at LEK Consulting.Giulia Mastroianni
