About this program

Designed for students who wish to study via a two-semester model, this three-year program means you will study during the January and September semesters of each year only and will complete the degree over three years rather than the usual two.

The Bachelor of Commerce (3 Year) develops financial literacy, business analytic and decision-making skills, leadership, and management skills through experiential learning and authentic assessment tasks relevant to the choice of major. The program equips students to think creatively and critically, problem-solve, communicate professionally, work collaboratively, make ethical and responsible business decisions, and work effectively in a global business context characterised by change and uncertainty.

Depending on the major selected, students are prepared for a professional career in Accounting, Actuarial Science, Economics or Finance fields. By undertaking a specified set of subjects according to their chosen discipline, Bachelor of Commerce (3 Year) students graduating with an Accounting, Actuarial Science or Finance major are eligible to pursue professional qualifications offered by their field’s governing bodies.

Students are also encouraged to complete a second major or minor to diversify their skills and enhance their employability.

Hear from our Bondies

  • My initial impression of Bond was the beautiful campus and the friendly environment. I was particularly drawn to the world class professors that I would be learning from. What sets Bond apart from other universities is the unique social opportunities as well as the practical experiences available. Upon completion of my undergraduate degree, I wish to undertake a Master of Financial Management and seek employment within the finance industry.

    Esther Xu - Bachelor of Commerce
  • Our classes are unique for more than our intimate class sizes and world-class trading room facilities. Our finance subjects are filled with real world experiences including business cases, role plays, simulations and the development of wealth management plans, trading strategies, valuation models and investment portfolios. You will gain hands-on experience applying both theory and skills to a stream of interesting business problems and that will give you an edge in a very competitive job market.
