University of Melbourne is the best place to study commerce, IMO.

If you're looking for some place with a good Management and Marketing course, I have no idea, but Melbourne would be pretty good at Economics, Finance and Accounting. Actuarial Studies is only offered at UoM in Victoria, so go figure :P

The two main majors seem to be Finance and Accounting, but you can't do both. If you choose Finance, you can take up Economics as well, but Accounting is pretty full-on, in terms of how much percentage it takes of your degree.

http://www.bcom.unimelb.edu.au/bachelor/breadth.html

for actuarial students you have to take:
one level-100 non-commerce, and non-math subject
one level-200 non-commerce, and non math subject

I recommend you guys consider:
512-121 Social, Develop. & Clinical Psychology 1
512-223 Personality and Social Psychology 2

I thought I could escape breadth if I did Arts at Melbourne by taking Psych units (you really can't get much more interdisciplinary than Psych - it's useful for Commerce, Arts and Science) or Economics but apparently if the course is offered by the Faculty it doesn't count. So if I do end up at Melbourne, I have no idea what I'm going to do. Maybe some Environments subjects or one of their specifically designed breadth subjects.

Oh I didn't know people thought breadth subjects were a pain. Call me weird, but I like em. Now I can study the languages I've always wanted to, alongside of commerce.
Do they take up extra time in your degree though?

I think the problem is that they are compulsory. Breadth subjects are great, but people should have the option to choose to use their "breadth" space in their area of specialisation.

Breadth subjects for Arts seems silly too. Nearly anything can count towards the Arts degree, so finding breadth subjects will not be very easy.

Nah, It's like any other subject you are doing.

620-121 for example, is a subject in 1st year for eg.

I agree with you, Coblin, arts is very broad indeed. On a sidenote, this is peeing me off (not really lol) cause I don't want to subjects I don't like lol. (and psych is one of em rofl)

Breadth subjects take up 25% of your degree, with 75% of your degree actually focused on the name of your degree. I'm saying breadth subjects ought to be changed to take "up to 25%" (e.g: it becomes optional).

620-121 for example, is a subject in 1st year for eg.

Huh??? Sorry, but that seems completely irrelevant to this...

I wouldn't mind doing both a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) concurrently at the University of Melbourne. Is it possible to complete the Bachelor of Science in the breadth? My guess is no.
