    What's commerce like?

    I'm thinking of doing a bachelor of commerce, particularly marketing/finance majors. My interests are trading and entrepreneurship (could go into marketing but I've heard it's full of really odd people).

    I'm wondering:

    Math is assumed knowledge but I'm only doing 2 unit, what is it used for, particularly in these majors? In finance for example do you develop functions to value investment strategies/commodities or build actual computer applications to (for example) perform Monte Carlo visualisations?

    How interesting is the content, for those of you with a decent interest in business?

    What're initial/future job prospects like in the wealth management/business analysis/marketing professions for graduates?

    Any particular advice about b com at UNSW/USyd?

    2 unit maths is fine. Unless you are doing the more hardcore quantitative finance subjects which require modelling/statistical analysis/etc, it's usually just plugging numbers into a formula.

    For a marketing major 2 unit should be sufficient.

    Despite what you believe I keep away from trouble
    If who I am today's a sign of where I'm going
