This double degree program prepares graduates for the exciting world of e-Commerce, by taking students through the technical studies required for both the electronic and the commerce aspects. (See the CQU Glossary for definition of a double degree, available from http://glossary.cqu.edu.au/.) Traditional accounting and finance studies are integrated with an understanding of the conduct of commerce in a global economy serviced by information technology, preparing accounting graduates for cutting-edge positions in developing or auditing of financial and other performance management systems. At the same time, graduates are qualified in the technical aspects of these developments. This enables graduates to choose a career which focuses on the accounting and financial management of an organisation, or the technical development of systems, well informed by the uses made of those systems.
