Our Bachelor of Business will help you navigate the world of business across a range of industries and occupations.

You will be able to develop and lead ethical, social and environmental solutions to meet business challenges.
Whether you are creating your own micro multinational, small business or large scale enterprise, we believe that your ability to understand business, solve problems and adapt to change is fundamental to success.
The core units of this degree, accounting, business analytics, economics, ethics, management and marketing will give you a strong foundation in business. We use real business case studies to analyse business data, strategy and management practices. Our units use current business research and industry experts to understand regional and global business trends. We value what you already know about the world of business and through our program of study help you to take your learning beyond university into your chosen career.
Our Bachelor of Business offers you a number of majors which can help you to build your career profile. You can choose one or two majors in Accounting*, Agribusiness, Analytics and Informatics*, Business Analytics, Economics, Finance*, Human Resource Management, International Business, Management and Marketing.
Completion of the Accounting major plus four additional units (see Course Rules and Plans) will qualify you for admission to the major professional accounting bodies (CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants ANZ and the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA)). Choose this option if you want an understanding of accounting but also want a broad set of business skills. You can also study accounting in the Bachelor of Accounting.
The Human Resource Management Major is accredited with the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI).
If you see international opportunities in your future, you can also choose to study a language within your elective units (only available if you study only one major) - Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese and Spanish are all available. You may also like to consider an international exchange and study a trimester at one of UNE's partner universities to build your global perspective.

If you choose only one major, you need to choose a further 8 units, which can be chosen from any discipline across the university in order to truly broaden your learning experience.
When you graduate, your major (or majors) will be identified on your testamur and transcript. For example, if you choose the major in Human Resource Management you will graduate with a Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management). Or, if you take two majors such as International Business and Accounting, you will graduate with a Bachelor of Business (International Business) (Accounting).
With online learning support and optional Trimester 3 units, you can accelerate your degree or combine it with periods of full-time employment.
