La Trobe’s Bachelor of Commerce gives you the opportunity to complete a professionally accredited major along with the chance to talk and work with business professionals while you study. Choose from majors in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing.
Our Professional Practice in Business program offers internships, practicums, case studies, travel tours, company visits and professional industry-led seminars. Through these experiences, you’ll be able to discuss current issues in business and see how your studies apply in a professional working environment.
In your first year, along with foundational business subjects, you’ll work as part of a small multidisciplinary Business Foundations project team to research a social problem and develop an action plan. In second year, you’ll work with another multidisciplinary team on the Sustainability project to define a solution to a local environmental issue. This will refine your research, presentation, analysis and problem-solving skills.
In third year, you’ll further enhance these skills through the Entrepreneurship project, in which your team will identify a business opportunity and develop a business plan.
Alongside these projects, you can also complete a second major from across the University. Choose from languages, maths, science, humanities or a second commerce major.
You can apply to study this course at Melbourne Campus through our Hallmark Scholars Program.
