  What is an ATAR
  Course rules
  Australian Qualification Framework level: 6

This course may not be available to international students. Please see the list of distance courses (i.e. online and taken outside Australia) that are offered to international students

Graduation from the Associate Degree in Applied Business can provide an entry opportunity for those who have not worked in business settings, accelerate progression through a graduate's present organisation, or open up new career paths and opportunities.
The Associate Degree in Applied Business is a stepping stone for future leaders and managers. It aims to produce graduates who are commercially aware, technically competent, creative and tuned-in to learning and paraprofessionals with the ability to identify, interpret, apply and transmit contemporary business concepts and practices in real business contexts through the combination of theory and practice.

Graduates will have completed core subjects in business with a choice of completing either a full articulation pathway to further bachelor study, or a pathway to employment (non-articulation pathway). Graduates will also have completed companion practice and portfolio subjects throughout the 2-year degree.

Students wishing to undertake a specialisation will need to enrol in the Associate Degree in Applied Business (Specialisation).

Delivered through on-line learning, face to face workshops, industry case studies, work integrated learning and the development of a reflective learning portfolio, the program is available for full-time and part-time students across all campuses in Tasmania.

On completion of this qualification, graduates will be able to apply interdisciplinary knowledge in order to:

  • Commence employment or enhance their current employment performance as paraprofessionals in business, especially in their chosen specialisation within the program; or
  • Facilitate articulation into future undergraduate study, which will prepare individuals to transition into leadership and management roles and future postgraduate study.

On completion of the Associate Degree in Applied Business, graduates will be able to:

  1. Identify, analyse, and evaluate personal goals and pathways for paraprofessional employment and further learning.
  2. Articulate evidence and value of learned academic and practice knowledge and skill to a range of audiences.
  3. Apply and communicate academic knowledge of business disciplines within the contemporary business environment.
  4. Apply and communicate practical business skills within the contemporary business environment.
  5. Demonstrate adaptability in the context of emerging digital and innovative landscapes through cognitive, technical, and creative thinking skills.
  6. Model the principles of sustainable business practice and resource management through ethical and professional conduct within a collaborative framework

Work Integrated Learning

The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) components of the Associate Degree in Applied Business focus specifically on developing students' employability skills by exposing them to real-world industry case studies and taking a problem-based learning approach to reiterate discipline learning. Work placement will allow students to gain direct experience in a work environment.

Practice and Portfolio (P&P)

Portfolio development and work integrated learning are a key component of the Associate Degree in Applied Business. The Practice and Portfolio (P&P) components of this program introduce the concept of learning through practice, by exposing students to authentic and engaged learning experiences designed to develop their understanding of work and the workplace. Throughout the P&P subjects, students learn to critically reflect on their progress towards meeting personal career development goals.

All P&P subjects are delivered as a companion to a discipline subject. All students will be required to demonstrate evidence of application and reflection within defined parameters of para-professional work and practice. Across all P&P subjects, assessment tasks are embedded in the discipline subject assessments and are cumulative and informed by increasing knowledge drawn from the subject.

These P&P units are designed so that the student and Student Portfolio Coach can build a picture of student strengths and weaknesses and thus be guided accordingly. Each P&P subject will be based on a method or approach to practice from, for example, projects, data for decision making, case studies, field work, simulated environments, design, action learning cycles etc.

The types of P&P approaches that a student can expect to undertake during the two-year degree are:

  • Projects;
  • Data for decision making;
  • Field work;
  • Case Studies;
  • Action learning cycles;
  • Design and creative thinking;
  • Simulated environments design;
  • Work placements;
  • Internships; and
  • Wicked problem (issues highly resistant to resolution)/ entrepreneurship).

Career outcomes

I’ve been tempted over a number of years to go to university but I got to that stage in my career where I decided if I was going to get into bigger and better roles I needed to get the tertiary education on my résumé.

Career Outcomes

Graduation from the Associate Degree in Applied Business can provide an entry opportunity for those who have not worked in business settings, accelerate progression through a graduate's present organisation, or open up new career paths and opportunities. It will also provide a clear articulation pathway into the Bachelor of Business Administration. This course provides graduates with paraprofessional level of business knowledge and practice applicable across industries. The career options of graduates may also be influenced by their chosen specialisation. A graduate's chosen specialisation might lead them to paraprofessional-level roles within that industry.

New to Applied Business and never worked in the industry before?

For those graduates new to Applied Business, this qualification could assist you to gain roles such as trainee positions with managers, team leaders, field officers, and researchers.

Already working and want to fast track or leverage off past experience?

For those graduates already working in Business, an Applied Business qualification may enable you to progress from assistant positions to managerial roles, lead a small team, become specialists, salespersons and liaise better with suppliers or customers.

Potential types of employers:

  • Small and medium businesses;
  • Accountancy firms;
  • Financial services;
  • Event organisations;
  • Sport organisations;
  • Tourism organisations;
  • Health and well-being consultants;
  • Non-for-profit organisations; and
  • Project management companies.

Articulation into further study

Articulating into the Associate Degree in Applied Business will be in line with the University's standard application for credit process. Please see the Articulation/ Credit webpage for more information. Applications for credit can be made upon application to the Associate Degree in Applied Business course.

Students seeking full credit will need to complete the full articulation pathway within the Associate Degree in Applied Business and apply for the Bachelor of Business Administration. This will require students to undertake 4 x 12.5% subjects from the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics in their second year.

Students wishing to articulate from the Associate Degree in Applied Business into other University of Tasmania bachelor programs may gain credit, subject to the receiving faculty/college's discretion.

Course structure

The Associate Degree in Applied Business is a two-year full-time (or equivalent part-time) degree requiring the successful completion of 32 subjects comprising of a combination of 16 topic areas, each with an embedded work integrated learning component. The program is offered over four teaching terms of 10 weeks.

The course structure includes ten compulsory subjects in Applied Business, a choice of six electives, and 16 Practice and Portfolio subjects.

The Associate Degree in Applied Business requires students to develop knowledge and skills through a learning approach based on work integrated opportunities such as industry placements, field work, case studies and applied research. This leads the program to be structured around the concept of paired or companion subjects where a Discipline subject and a Practice and Portfolio (P&P) subject are linked such that students are given the opportunity to apply discipline knowledge in a work based type setting.

The first year of the Associate Degree will serve as a foundation year. The second year of the degree will allow students to choose either an employment-based pathway or a pathway into higher level study.

The Associate Degree in Applied Business is offered in blended mode, where students receive access to comprehensive learning materials and a Lecturer for each subject of study. There is a workshop component where students attend campus to practice their skills and also online sessions where students can integrate theory and practice.

Z2C Applied Business (Non-Articulation pathway)

Students are required to take two discipline subjects, with a corresponding practice component for each discipline subject (called 'Practice & Portfolio' subject) totalling 4 subjects at 6.25 credit points (cps) in each term, if you are studying full time.
