HI EVERYONE IM A NEW MEMBER SORRY IF I ASK A STUPID QUESTION BUT:
i juz haf some confusion abt some courses at UNI ... b/eco and b/comm
i wana ask what are the career opportunities for these 2 course?
do they both lead to accounting career?
if i wana become a financial advisor then which one shud i choose?
Hey im first year doing Economics at UNSW. I gotta say that I spend my whole day with commerce people, and havent met one person who is doing a B Econ.
The only difference between a B Econ and the B Com is that in the B Econ you have to do one of the four Majors offered by the facualty of Economics, So Economics, Econometrics, Economic History, or Financial Economics. In the economics degree you then have the choice of a second major or some minors. The second major can be from any school of Commerce and Economics, except Actuarial studies. So you can do Economics and....Accounting, Finance, Business Law, Marketing, etc, etc.
So In the Commerce Degree you have a free choice of the two majors you can do. You arent forced to do economics. And I think you probably might have a couple more units of credit to play around with.
As for Arts, you can do an economics major in that course as well.
So really the back door into business area degrees is Economics because for 2005 it was 5 marks lower. And the corse is so structured in the first year that you are doing exactly the same subjects as the commerce people, so if in the future you want more flexibility, work a little hard 1st year and transfer.
But as if you wouldnt want to do economics.
Hope that helps
