Programme Overview

Associated with one of the highest graduate employment rates in the country, a Wits BCom makes you highly sought-after, both locally and internationally.

Two or three majors?
The Wits BCom is a double major degree, which means you need to complete at least two full majors. But, in your second year, you can choose courses or modules that lead to three potential majors.

By choosing three majors in your second year, you can start exploring areas of interest in more depth, but make a final decision later.

You must have at least one major from Commerce, Law and Management (CLM); your second major could be from another faculty, like Science or Humanities. However, many students take both majors from disciplines offered within CLM.

Still deciding? Go General.
One of the great benefits of a Wits BCom General degree is that you don’t have to commit to your major choices in first year. Even if you choose one of the more specialised BCom degrees (e.g. BCom Law or BCom PPE), you can easily move between degrees if you change your mind later.
