The Bachelor of Commerce (Business Economics) focuses on teaching you the principles of economics and how to apply these principles to business situations.
Many key business decisions rely on a clear understanding of relevant economic concepts and principles, while business success depends heavily on timely and appropriate responses to changes in the economic environment in which a business operates.
