Commerce makes the world go round
Commercial activity is in every field and industry, involving the legal, economic, political, social, and technological systems that support the financial side of business. A degree from Griffith provides you with a wide range of managerial skills plus in-depth knowledge of your chosen major in accounting, economics, finance or financial planning. It’ll also prepare you to think differently, creatively and innovate sustainable solutions for real world problems.
Demand for commerce graduates is high with job growth projected to continue in the future. Commerce professionals advise on and influence a wide range of business activities from the financial position of small firms to the amount of taxation large companies should pay, investment strategies for organisations or individuals to the risks involved in releasing a new product, the relationship between economic activity and unemployment to the importance of free trade.

Study commerce at Griffith
Join the new way of thinking
The world is catching up with a clear shift away from outdated business practices. The new Bachelor of business is a genuine alternative to traditional business degrees. It’s a whole new way of thinking for a whole new generation of future business professionals.
Put theory into practice
When you study commerce at Griffith, you'll learn from lecturers who are members of peak industry bodies with expertise gained through extensive qualifications, industry experience and ongoing research. Through our cutting-edge trading rooms, you will have access to Bloomberg Professional Services, a software platform providing real-time market data, news and analytics, and be able to put theory into practice from the start of your degree. You’ll also have the opportunity to build your own network and skills through industry internships, visits from professional firms and simulation activities with renowned organisations.
Griffith Business School is an accredited member of AACSB International which means our business degrees are internationally recognised for excellence and outstanding business education. It’s the most prestigious accreditation a business school can earn.
Multiply your career options
Combine your degree with studies from another area and expand your career opportunities without doubling your study time. In as little as four years, you can graduate with a unique skill set that will give you an edge in the employment market. A double degree allows you to make your passion profitable and build a career that is as unique as your interests.
For example, you can combine management and finance if you want a career in a multinational investment firm. Or you can combine accounting with law to gain the skills needed to work in a commercial law firm.
A Bachelor of Commerce put John O'Brien in the driving seat from the moment his career took off in the finance industry. After focusing on finance and risk management during his studies at Griffith, he felt fully primed in the technical aspects of forecasting, investing and financial markets. 'As students we were exposed to current industry knowledge in the classroom', says John, who is a partner at Visis Private Wealth. 'Some of our lecturers were also practitioners in the field.'
