Overview

With accelerating changes alongside global megatrends, society and business have been fundamentally transformed. The market requires human resources who have mindsets geared towards technology and transferable skills. As such, RMIT's new Bachelor of Business is completely revamped, and we are placing total freedom into your hands.  

You now have the ultimate flexibility to customise your own program, following your own interests, to maximise study choice & career opportunities. Do you wish to create social-impact programs, oversee global transportation operations or implement blockchain technology into an existing business? With a unique mix and match structure, the options are completely up to you.  

Choose from a suite of Majors and Minors to specialise in one or two chosen fields or broaden your knowledge across many. With a focus on developing your personal and professional capabilities, you will be in high demand once you enter the workforce.  

The program curriculum is co-designed with industry to solve real-world problems and build up cross-disciplinary knowledge and skill sets needed by contemporary business. Graduates of this program will have a global 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 foundation 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, or just focus on individual subjects and electives that interest you most.  

In the final year, all students will undertake the compulsory Capstone Experience, a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course in which industry partners will be bringing challenges, providing feedback and mentoring, and overseeing simulated WIL tasks.

Please note: if you use a course toward the completion of a Major or Minor, you cannot use that same course to count toward another Major or Minor.
