Bachelor of Business and Commerce - Applied Finance

The world of finance is complex and dynamic. It requires talented, well educated people – people who not only understand the ways in which individuals, businesses and organisations raise, allocate and use monetary resources over time, but who can also competently consider the risks inherent in any project.

The Bachelor of BBC Applied Finance will equip you with those skills. You'll develop a strong grasp of finance along with foundational studies in accounting, economics, commercial law, management and marketing. You'll be able to adapt to dynamic environments, both globally and domestically.

Importantly, UWS BBC Applied Finance Degree (true to its name) has a strong practical focus which will equip you with real-life conceptual and professional skills. Throughout the course, you're encouraged to independently seek relevant work experience, adding to your skills and knowledge in this area.
