Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies)

Four years full-time
UAC code: 511510

The four-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies) enables you to choose up to three majors and more elective units than you would be able to complete in a three-year program. You can choose majors that appeal to your interest from outside the usual suite of business degrees, including languages, humanities and sciences.

This depth of choice allows you to develop skills that go above and beyond, helping to set you apart from the pack when you graduate. Employers often look for graduates with proficiency in more than one area of expertise, so the high-level skills in critical thinking and decision making that you will acquire from this degree will set you apart in an increasingly competitive employment market.

We offer students an opportunity to work for a leading firm, through our Industry Placement Program. Students are encouraged to incorporate either an exchange program or semester of independent study abroad into their degree Detailed course information
