What's the difference between the Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Business?

If you’d like to study business, how do you decide between a Bachelor of Business and a Bachelor of Commerce? We tell you how.

You'll learn to

  • identify the key external and internal factors that influence the management of international organisations, and demonstrate how major management functions and skills vary as a result of managing organisations internationally; 
  • recognise why and how ethics and corporate social responsibility vary when managing organisations internationally;
  • identify the key contextual issues affecting the formulation and implementation of an international business venture, and articulate appropriate responses to specific international business issues; 
  • demonstrate an understanding of how personal and cultural values are related and differ within and across countries, and evaluate how people and their consumption are shaped by their environment and personal experiences; 
  • communicate and work with people from diverse cultures.
