What is Commerce Studies?

Commerce Studies students learn about specialist commerce subjects by choosing from a broad range of topics that match their interests and passions. Students select topics from Accounting, Business Studies, Economics and/or Legal Studies. If students enjoy a particular subject, this can take them to further study of their chosen specialist subject.
