About this course

This dual degree program will increase your understanding of the significant role played by financial markets and institutions in the world economy as you also focus on the key concepts of commerce today.

The international economics and finance component of the program is founded upon a platform of microeconomics, macroeconomics and statistics, and extends to teaching you how economic principles may be applied to issues in the international economy, with electives that enable you to concentrate on your specific needs and interests.

During your commerce study, you'll have the opportunity to undertake two fields of study or additional research electives, which may provide a pathway to higher degrees by research. You'll also benefit from UQ's ranking of 43rd in the world for accounting and finance education*, a distinction reflected in the quality of course material and contemporary learning environment where you have access to the state-of-the-art Bloomberg Trading Room and can participate in the Student Managed Investment Fund.
