Bachelor of Commerce (Entrepreneurship) & Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) – Double Major – BCom(Curtin)
MoHE Course Code: (R/342/6/0037)
Entrepreneurship can be found in many types of workplace. What they all have in common is ambition, an ability to think outside the square and the love of a personal challenge. Does this sound like you? If you want to pave your own way and bring your ideas to life rather that work for someone, you could be an entrepreneur in the making.
This course prepares students for careers in the management of small and medium retail, export or sales enterprises. It compromises a foundation in business studies, followed by two streams of units which address subject areas central to marketing, sales, entrepreneurship and SME management. This course has a practical emphasis and is guided by a philosophy of teaching which stresses interactivity, student participation and lifelong learning.
Marketing is one of the most important functions in a successful business.
Firms use marketing to differentiate their products and services in the marketplace, effectively communicate with their intended audience, and develop strategies to maximise consumer value, sales and profits.
Marketers blend advertising, promotions, digital and social media marketing, public relations, retailing and sales strategies to promote an organisation’s brand, products and services.
Your study will involve interaction with industry, as the marketing teaching team has strong industry connections. Units often feature real life clients; students develop strategies to solve real business problems and present their ideas directly to management representatives.
