To be awarded a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree, one additional year of study is required following the completion of the Bachelor of Commerce. You'll complete coursework and supervised research, leading to a 20,000-word dissertation focusing on an accounting, finance, financial planning, or economics. Your dissertation topic will be decided in consultation with academic staff members.

As a graduate, you will have a unique skill set that will give you a competitive edge in the employment market. You'll be equipped with the practical skills, experience and attributes that employers value, as well as highly developed research capabilities. Your skills will be valuable in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Offered through the Griffith Business School, which is ranked in the top 200 worldwide by the prestigious Academic Rankings of World universities, this degree can also provide a pathway to higher degree by research studies and a career in academia.

Students will also have access to a team of dedicated advisors who can provide advice on welfare issues, academic policies, program issues and more.

Attendance information

Student Income Support

From 2017, to be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.

Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.

Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.

Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
