As members of society we all have different roles to play. We can be a consumer, producer, worker, manager, voter, unionist and so on. The study of Commerce enables students to better understand these roles and how the commercial world functions.


Commerce examines peoples' business activities, how people earn their income, how and why people buy goods and services, how people organise their financial affairs and what types of goods are produced. Commerce also examines the ways in which governments and the law influence our business activities. Commerce helps students face the realities of the world of work, changing technology, consumer problems and government decisions and actions.
