Finance and Management
Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) & Bachelor of Commerce (Management) – Double Major – BCom(Curtin)
The field of finance can take you anywhere in the world and to many careers. You can work in corporate finance for big business, for well-known financial institutions, or in financial markets in Australia and overseas.
Financial planners help people to make smart decisions with their money. They take time to understand each client’s goal and objectives. They formulate a financial plan, monitor progress and help their clients maintain a budget. If you enjoy working with people and want to help others progress financially, this could be the industry for you.
Management knowledge and skills are valued and needed in small-to-medium enterprises, not-for-profit organisations, large corporations and government, both locally and globally.
Management is about taking a leading role: supervising and mentoring staff, balancing budgets, and ensuring tasks and projects are completed successfully, together with recognising issues such as values, ethics and sustainability. It means taking responsibility, being entrepreneurial and getting things done, and making the most of your staff and resources.
A management qualification can create opportunities in a wide range of careers. Curtin’s management graduates may receive recognition from a range of professional bodies.
