Business and International Business - B2041

Business and International Business

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

Business and International Business is a great combination and a great option if you have a passion for both areas and want to keep your career options open. This double degree enables you to study complementary subjects to further enhance your employability, and develop broad business skills and specialist knowledge in international business.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Business, and
  • the Bachelor of International Business.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

Your career options will depend on the combination of majors and minors that you choose, and will open up a diverse range of opportunities.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Business and another in International Business will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to a number of industries. The combination will also give you the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.

Business

The Bachelor of Business is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete the following two parts:

Part A. Business specified study

This will provide you with a broad foundation for your study of business and expose you to several business disciplines. It will contribute breadth to your knowledge of business and develop your understanding of multi-disciplinary decision making in organisations. It will also give you the opportunity to learn more about each discipline before finalising your choice of major.

Part B. Business listed major (excludes Accounting)

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of your major area of study. Due to the double degree structure, the International business major is not available in this course.

International Business

The Bachelor of International Business is a specialist course that develops through the themes of foundation business knowledge, specialist discipline knowledge and capstone experience.

Part A. Foundation business knowledge

This will provide you with a study of accounting, economics and econometrics disciplines and the impact they have on decision making in organisations.

Part B. Specialist discipline knowledge

These studies will develop your capacity as a critical and creative professional who is able to apply your knowledge of international business to provide discipline based solutions for business. Units contained within the discipline specialisation may meet the requirements for professional accreditation bodies.

Part C. Capstone experience

The capstone unit will consolidate your knowledge and skills acquired through the study of international business and provide experience in multi-disciplinary processes and decision making.
