Qualify for a professional position in accounting, economics, finance, marketing or management and extend your knowledge and skill through a study of international relations so as to be able to apply your commercial skills to the management of international institutions, multinational companies, NGOs and public service agencies such as foreign trade. The international relations component explores power in political, social and cultural contexts. By analysing multinational corporations, non-government and government organisations, you'll build an understanding of international affairs. Your subjects will cover areas like culture and globalisation, democracies and dictatorships, and Australia as a global nation. By examining power, sovereignty, security and political science through real-world examples, you'll gain knowledge of international trade, foreign affairs, diplomacy and conflict. You'll also study the historical contexts and social theories behind these areas, with an emphasis on 21st century law, economics and the state. The commerce component is designed to develop responsible, engaged and innovative, work-ready graduates through providing you with opportunities to talk with business and work with business. The Bachelor of Commerce comprises: an eight-subject common core and an eight-subject primary major, chosen from five key business disciplines: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management and Marketing. The common core, which extends through all three years of the degree is designed to offer you a broad introduction to business disciplines; the opportunity to apply your disciplinary knowledge, research, analytical and problem solving skills to resolving social, environmental and business problems and opportunities; and the opportunity to talk with business and community leaders and apply their knowledge and skills in a professional working environment. The three Essentials - Global Citizenship, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Thinking - are specialist areas designed to give you an edge with employers.
