Commerce Specialist - B2004
Commerce is about innovation, big-picture thinking and decision-making.
If you like to unpick problems and consider ideas in abstract ways, and want to find solutions to global challenges, Commerce will teach you how to apply your thinking to commercial environments.
In this specialist course you will have genuine depth of study, giving you the skills to join the next generation of commercial leaders, and use your analytical abilities to adapt to or influence change.
You will develop strong commercial knowledge, while also building your expertise from day one in one of three specialist areas:
- Actuarial science
You can also combine your course as a double degree, providing genuine diversity of study, and graduate with an internationally recognised qualification that makes you employable across the globe.
Your learning experience at Monash is enhanced through a range of co-curricular activities that develop your critical thinking, communication and negotiation skills including:
- Internships with leading companies and brands.
- International exchange programs with one of our 100 partner universities across the world.
- Leadership and professional development programs.
- Networking opportunities with business leaders.
From day one you'll be able to focus your study and begin your career journey.
Actuarial Science will prepare you for a career as an actuary, where you will use mathematical and econometric models to forecast real-life scenarios such as calculating insurance premiums or the likelihood of economic or property losses, managing superannuation investments or working across financial consulting.
Economics will allow to you work as an economist, unlocking how the world works by reviewing important economic activity such as the consumption of goods and services, employment rates or living standards. You will learn to use economic theories and econometric modelling to figure out how the economy is operating and identify and communicate the impacts of government policies in both domestic and international environments.
Finance will give you the high-level skills to manage, organise and invest money. You will learn how to develop financial policy and products and use mathematical models to solve complex financial problems.
Plus, very high achieving students enrolled in the single Commerce Specialist course or the Commerce and Commerce Specialist double-degree course will be eligible for selection to the Monash Business School Scholars Program.
