Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Marketing)
Deliver value to customers and organisations
Are you creative, self-motivated, like to work in a team, organised but flexible, and most of all are interested in how people think and act? Then USQ’s Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Marketing) may be the degree for you. Marketing encompasses the steps taken to position your product or services into the hands of potential customers. As such, it can focus the energy and resources of an organisation to their best potential for maximum gain in the marketplace.
The marketing major provides you with opportunities to learn relevant marketing theories and principles in a real-world context through the use of case studies and applied activities. You will also have the opportunity in your final year to complete a professional work experience course where you’ll work with an organisation to complete a project.
In addition to your chosen specialisation of Marketing, you can choose to study another area in-depth with a second major, or broaden your knowledge with a combination of minors and approved courses. These can be chosen from business and commerce-related courses or why not try courses in Advertising, Public Relations or Communication and Media Studies.
The Marketing major within the Bachelor of Business and Commerce is accredited by the Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) and students are eligible for credit towards becoming a Certified Practicing Marketer (CPM) upon completion.
As a graduate, your marketing degree will not confine you to an industry, a country, or a type of business, offering you a world of opportunities. Your career path may include advertising coordinator, marketing consultant, marketing researcher, advertising manager, product or brand manager, distribution manager or sales manager.
Other majors in the Bachelor of Business and Commerce include: Accounting, Aviation Management and Safety, Business Administration, Business Economics, Business Law, Finance, General Commerce, Human Resource Management, Information Technology Management, International Business, Logistics and Supply Chains, Management and Leadership, Marketing and Hospitality Management, Sustainable Business, Tourism Management and Tourism and Events Management.
