Bachelor of Business
About Bachelor of Business
Students in the Bachelor of Business develop the knowledge and ability to work as specialist business professionals in varied and changing business environments. The degree offers diverse core units in the first year before undertaking specialisation units, so that students have the flexibility to determine which business discipline they wish to pursue. The degree is designed to teach students the critical reasoning, communication and professional skills required in contemporary business settings. Students gain a broad understanding of business principles through the core units, and develop specialised skills in one or more business disciplines of their choice through the study of a single or double specialisation.
This course offers four specialisations:
- Information Systems
Students also have the opportunity to obtain double specialisations in Management and Information Systems or Marketing and Information Systems. Students who complete the Bachelor of Business (Accounting), subject to any course credits applied, will satisfy the educational requirements for admission to the major professional accounting bodies of CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
This course is available at both the Sydney and Melbourne campuses. Take a look at our campus locations page for more information on the locations and facilities on offer.
