Undergraduate degrees are generally for students who are school leavers and have not been to university before. These degrees are two to five years in length, giving students a strong foundation in business and the major areas of study chosen.
This is usually in the form of a Bachelor Degree or undergraduate degree. We offer our undergraduate degrees by distance and face-to-face, and offer study in:
- Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business
- Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Economics
- Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology
- Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Economics
- Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Laws
- Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science
- Bachelor of Information and Communication and Technology and Bachelor of Economics
- Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Laws
- Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Science
On successful completion of an undergraduate degree, students have the opportunity to undertake an Honours degree which will give them a competitive edge. The Honours degree represents elite academic performance and is recognised nationally and internationally. The Honours program provides an advanced year of full-time (or equivalent part-time) specialised study in an area of interest. By undertaking a mix of taught units and an independent research project, students develop their research and analytical skills to assist with gaining an employment advantage over other graduates or to provide a foundation for postgraduate study.
Honours programs may be available in the areas of accounting, corporate governance, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, human resource management, management, marketing and tourism.
On successful completion of the Honours program it is expected that you will:
- have gained an in-depth and thorough understanding of the theoretical framework, key concepts and research underpinning the disciplinary area of particular interest to you;
- have developed your ability to analyse and critically appraise key concepts, arguments and research findings within the literature relevant to your disciplinary area;
- have developed your ability to undertake independent research, as well as the skills required to do this satisfactorily;
- be able to meaningfully analyse and discuss research findings and their implications; and
- be suitably qualified to pursue higher degree work should you so desire.
