The Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) at Melbourne equips graduates with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to understand and participate in the modern business world. The course also prepares students for subsequent graduate studies and allows them to achieve the highest level of success in their professional careers.

The Bachelor of Commerce provides a solid foundation in economics, accounting, finance, quantitative methods and organisational behaviour. The structure of the course requires students to study compulsory and elective subjects from the core program. These determine a student's major field of study.

A feature of all the new generation undergraduate degrees is the compulsory breadth component. Students choose a number of subjects from disciplines outside of commerce, exposing them to multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills.

The course allows students to meet accreditation requirements specified by accounting and actuarial professional bodies. Graduate options upon completion of the degree include proceeding directly to employment, an Honours year, or further professional or research related graduate studies.
