With a Bachelor of Commerce, you will have the choice of what to major and minor in.  I received a Specialist in Finance and Commerce , a Major in Economics, and a Minor in Philosophy.  At the time, I felt that this was a good synergistic combination that also included some of my passions (i.e., Philosophy).  I didn't necessarily know what I would do with this degree.  During my university career, I realized just how much I love working with numbers, and more importantly, analyzing data to enable us to actually make decisions.  I loved being presented with a scenario and being asked to make recommendations that optimize the outcome (whether the desired result is to maximize profit/minimize risk/etc).  I loved being presented with a problem and coming up with the best most optimal most efficient solution.  What also helped me to reach this conclusion was the part-time job I held throughout my university years and the particular aspects I enjoyed about it, as well as the fact that this is how I am in my life in general when it comes to everything I do - I try to challenge the status quo and improve the way I do things.

After graduating, I looked for a job that would enable me to do precisely that.  However, with a B.Comm, the sky is the limit.  It is such a broad and all-encompassing degree so there is a wide variety of things you can do with it.  You can also further specialize in something in particular if you so choose.  For example, some of my classmates ended up getting their accounting designation.  You will learn what you like in the years that you're working towards this degree.  Another factor of course will be the types of jobs available upon graduation.  One thing to note is - depending on what field you choose to get into, your grades may in fact matter tremendously.  In my case, I was able to find a job and move up quickly due to my high GPA.  But this is not necessarily true of all jobs.
