Overview

Are you ready for a degree that puts you in control, with the freedom to choose a path that you are most passionate about?

From a suite of majors and minors, you can choose to specialise in one or two selected fields or expand your business knowledge across many. The focus will be on developing both your personal and professional capabilities, making you work-ready and in high demand upon entering the workforce. 

The program curriculum is co-designed with industry, providing students with the opportunity to solve real-world problems, and build up cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills desired within the contemporary business world. Graduates of this program will have an international mindset, digital agility and critical thinking abilities. 

The Bachelor of Business allows you to do more than respond to the future, it allows you to create your own.

Design your own program structure

There are 288 credits (a maximum of 24 courses) in the program. In your first year, you will complete 4 Business Core courses to give you the building blocks needed to succeed in your chosen business career path.

Next, the direction you take is in your hands. You can choose up to two majors or two minors. You can choose on a spectrum from generalist (breadth) to specialist (depth). Majors are the primary focus of your study, whereas minors are secondary areas of study that are typically more specialised.

In the final year, all students will undertake the compulsory Capstone Experience - a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course - engaging with industry partners.

The Bachelor of Business is predominately a blended learning environment. This includes both classroom teaching and an online learning environment. 

In terms of classroom teaching, this may include discussion, guest lecturers, tutorials, class presentations, group discussions, student-led discussions, role-playing, etc. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and develop appropriate skills while also promoting an environment where you can ask questions, seek feedback and contribute to class discussion.  
 
The Bachelor of Business incorporates the use of authentic assessment. This is an approach to assessment where you are asked to perform real-world tasks to demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills, ensuring your work readiness.

Upon the completion of the Bachelor of Business, you will be able to:  

  1. Explain your role as a local, national, and global citizen and be able to apply these perspectives in business contexts.
