The Bachelor of Commerce is more analytical, and
more focused on the specific functions of business
organisations, such as accounting, marketing, or finance.
Once you have completed your degree, it is expected that
you’ll have gained the relevant knowledge for a career in
the specific area you majored in.

You can still choose to do a second major in the Bachelor
of Commerce if you take the Bachelor of Business and
vice versa.
