Bachelor of Business

Our Bachelor of Business will make you job-ready. We have a strong focus on practical real-world learning like internships, industry guest speakers, and live case studies. You don't need to be physically located in Tasmania to benefit from our connections with local industry. Our distance students have access to all the same opportunities as those who attend classes face-to-face.

As a distance student you'll be able to choose from one of the following three majors in the Bachelor of Business.

Marketing

Marketing is about finding creative solutions to communication problems. You'll learn how to identify a target audience, develop strategies to reach them, and communicate effectively to drive action. This major is endorsed by the Australian Marketing Institute.

Finance

Careers in finance suit analytical, inquisitive thinkers who want to work closely with the decision makers in an organisation. You'll develop a strong understanding of banking and financial institutions by learning about financial planning and management, investment analysis, and corporate and international finance. This major is endorsed by the Australian Institute of Banking and Finance.

Human Resource Management

The most valuable asset a business has is its people and as a human resource manager you ensure this asset is well cared for. You'll learn about organisational behaviour including how individual differences, perceptions, attitudes, and motivation impact work performance.
