Students commencing a Bachelor of Business next year can complete the degree online as part of an increasing range of distance offerings by the Faculty of Business.
The Faculty already offers the Corporate Governance major by distance and now students will also be able to study the Finance and Marketing majors from home or anywhere in the world.
Acting Dean of the UTAS Faculty of Business, Dr Martin Grimmer, said he is pleased to announce the new offering in 2011.
“Online delivery is great for people who are working full time or balancing family responsibilities, and we know that people have been interested in this service for some time.”
“We are pleased that we can now provide this flexibility,” Dr Grimmer said.
“This initiative means that Tasmanians will be able to access UTAS Business Studies online instead of going through mainland universities, keeping education local and accessible.”
Dr Grimmer also said the initiative will also benefit for those who wish to combine on-campus and online study and who need to balance the demands of life, work and study.
It is expected other majors within the Bachelor of Business degree will be available online in coming years.
Students enrolled or planning to enrol in the first year of a Bachelor of Business in 2011 can begin their degree online.
