I am planning to do a bachelor of business and arts in UNSW, but when I the ATAR cutoff thing, i realised there was also a bachelor of commerce and arts.
I am so confused about what the difference between commerce and business is.
Could someone please explain the difference or are they the same thing?:jump:

The difference is that by doing commerce and arts, you have two actual degrees. Business itself isn’t really a degree, it is designed to give you some exposure to the commerce courses, so you don’t even have a commerce major when u graduate. It is suitable for some people who want to work in the art industry who also want to know some business aspects (such as marketing , management )without having to studying the whole commerce degree.
That being said, if you want to become a business professional you do need an actual commerce degree. As the business part in that business and art (single degree) is incomplete .
