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.

The Accounting and Finance major of Lincoln University's BCom focuses on how firms develop and use financial systems and models to enhance value to the firm and to others in the value chain. It provides a pathway into internationally recognised professional bodies including Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and Certified Practising Accountants (CPA) Australia, and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). This is a career-focused programme that provides students with practical skills, and accounting and finance firms often approach Lincoln University looking for graduates.
