What will I learn?

Lincoln University’s Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree has a specific focus on value chains. Value chains connect the world, and so do our graduates.

Be it in supply chain management, marketing, food and resource economics, or accounting and finance, our graduates are bringing the world to New Zealand and New Zealand to the world.

When businesses link their strategies and operations with what is happening in the global economy and with their commercial partners, they are well positioned to capture competitive advantages.

This unique major meets the hotel and tourism industry needs, and provides a qualification that is internationally recognised.

Sustainable industry growth in the hotel and tourism sector in New Zealand and abroad needs to be supported by a competent and educated workforce. Graduates will be trained and educated to be critical thinkers, innovators and problem solvers, and understand the business of hotel and tourism management enabling them to constructively participate in growing the industry in a sustainable manner – profitably, environmentally, economically and socially.

The courses comprising the major involve lectures, tutorials and where appropriate, field trips (domestic and international options), taught by academic staff involved in research in these areas. There will also be guest lectures from hotel and tourism practitioners.
