Management and marketing studies are an ideal starting point for students seeking careers in the fields of human resource management, international management, marketing, operations management and organisational development. They are also a valuable complement to studies in another area, such as accounting or finance.

Emma GovanI chose Melbourne Commerce because I wanted a highly regarded, world class degree that would challenge me to think outside the box and broaden my knowledge in a range of areas. I believed that the University of Melbourne would open the most doors and provide varied opportunities for enrichment and experience. Overall, the BCom has given me a better perspective of the business world and provided me with the skills required for in-depth analysis and research.
