Overview

The Bachelor of Business is a generalist undergraduate degree giving an understanding of business on a global scale. This involves both a broad based multi-disciplinary approach and the opportunity for focused study in a particular discipline area or professional area of practice. The degree aims to develop student’s knowledge in all business areas but also allowing for specialization. Students’ capabilities in communication skills, teamwork skills, critical and analytical thinking, problem-solving and research skills are progressively developed throughout the degree. The degree has an applied orientation. The structure is modeled on generalist business degrees offered in UK, Australia and New Zealand to enable benchmarking and allow students from this course to progress to post graduate study in business or a related field at an overseas university.
