International Business and Arts - B2038

International Business and Arts

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

International Business and Arts 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 core skills in global business that can be used in artistic arenas.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

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

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 International Business and another in Arts 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.
