    commerce majors/minor help

    hello peeps

    im heading off to usyd this year to study commerce!!

    im wanting to major in accounting with the intent of becoming an accountant bc im drawn to the versatility+job prospects associated w/ it

    but idk what my other major (or minor) should be...

    some ppl have suggested finance bc it'll enrich job prospects, which is great, but im not particularly confident in my maths (i got an 87 in 2u, if that helps)..... however im not averse to it either lol

    does anyone have any suggestions? or should i just see how i fare in finance? what abt other options, like management? business analytics?

    tHANK U

    (also im not interested in marketing)

    Business Infomation Systems? Business Analytics typically assumes at least 3 units level of mathematics so if you are avoiding finance if you are worried about mathematics, then I wouldn't head down the business analytics.

    You don't really have to be good at math to do a finance major, but it helps a lot when you do the more quantitative units. Business Analytics is very statistical but 2U should be good enough? Have a go at BUSS1020 as a taste tester. FINC2011 for finance. You have plenty of time to choose your majors anyways, so no rush.
