The Bachelor of Commerce has 5 compulsory papers students are required to complete.
Students should normally take all BCom core (BSNS) papers in their first year. At least three BSNS papers must be passed in order to progress to any 200-level Commerce paper.
All Core BSNS papers must be completed before enrolling in any 300-level Commerce paper.
The core papers are:
- BSNS 111 Business and Society
- BSNS 112 Interpreting Business Data
- BSNS 113 Economic Principles and Policy
- BSNS 114 Financial Decision Making
- BSNS 115 Accounting and Information Systems
As a business student you not only gain a broad perspective of the business world, but most students are also able to select additional elective, or 'interest' papers relevant to their own interests.
Students can also continue to study toward a double-degree (two degrees simultaneously), a double-major (two majors simultaneously) or an endorsed minor without the required papers adding significantly to your overall workload.
