Business and Banking and Finance - B2035

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

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Business, and
  • the Bachelor of Banking and Finance.

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 Banking and Finance 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 Banking and Finance)

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 Banking and finance major is not available in this course.
