The commerce component is designed to develop responsible, engaged, innovative, work-ready graduates by providing opportunities to talk and work with business. It comprises an eight-subject common core and an eight-subject primary major, chosen from five key business disciplines: accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing. The common core, which extends through all three years of the degree, is designed to offer a broad introduction to business disciplines.
