In commerce/science at the University of Melbourne, we expect to educate our students in the fundamental skills of transforming information into knowledge and being able to integrate this knowledge into a business environment. These outcomes are fully consistent with the University's general ambition for our graduates, and emphasise the transferability of the skills practised in commerce and in science.
Graduates in commerce/science are able to be creative in their approach to scientific or business issues. They are used to formulating hypotheses that can be tested for validity. They can extrapolate from the known to the unknown and are comfortable working with analogues rather than needing to deal with literal situations.
