The Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Information Technology double degree gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge on two different areas and will allow you to thrive in a technology-dependent environment as Information Technology becomes increasingly more essential for a successful business. This double degree combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience to help you become successful in whichever career pathway you choose.

You can choose from a number of different Commerce majors including Accounting, Business Law, Finance, General Commerce, Information Technology Management, Sustainable Business, and Sustainable Economics and Policy. Information Technology majors include Applied Computer Science, Information Systems Development, Information Technology Management, and Networking and Security.

When graduating with a double degree, you will receive a separate testamur (official certificate) for each degree and will be able to complete the double degree in less time than if you chose to study the two degrees separately.
