The Bachelor of Business harnesses your energy and passion for success. This degree gives you the knowledge to create a career as a business professional. Whether you wish to pursue a corporate role in a global enterprise or start your own business, this course will provide you with the skills to do it.
The Bachelor of Business begins with four core units: Financing Enterprises, Enterprise Innovation and Markets, Enterprise Leadership, and Enterprise Law. These units provide you with the essential business knowledge that will be the platform for your career and equip you with the academic skills that will underpin your success in the degree.
You will then undertake four professional units. The professional units are where you begin to shape your future in one of three core business areas: Money, Markets or Management. By learning core business skills within the context of your chosen future you will develop new skills and enhance your employability. Units in the professional core will teach you to plan your career, innovate and analyze. You will also be able to explore and apply your skills and knowledge in a work-based learning unit.
Ten industry-relevant specializations have been created to equip you with expert skills across the three enterprise futures of Money, Markets and Management. The Money specializations include Accounting, Applied Finance, Economics, and Property. The Markets specializations are Hospitality Management, International Business, Marketing and Sport Management. Management specializations are Human Resource Management and Management.
You will need the flexibility to create your career. The Bachelor of Business gives you the flexibility to select eight units from anywhere in the University. This means that you can choose a variety of non-business units to gain depth and perspective on your enterprise future; you could take a specialization in another discipline, or you can complete the second specialization within Business.
You will graduate from this degree with an understanding of the spectrum of business operations and with competencies that will enable you to act strategically and independently in your chosen career.
The course seeks to equip all students with a good understanding of basic business issues, complemented by a high level of knowledge relevant to a specific business discipline as applied in a global environment. See key programs for career-specific information.
