Notes

Description

The Bachelor of Arts is a general, flexible degree which allows students to match academic interests with career aspirations to create a personalised course progression. Studying humanities will develop general knowledge and specific intellectual skills relating to human thought and relations, such as the way we communicate or how the past has affected the present. Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.

The Bachelor of Business (Management) component of this double degree offers a basic grounding in a broad range of business disciplines, with a focus on management.

Objectives

This course offers graduates a business degree with a strong emphasis on management studies in the diverse fields of management including managerial communication, organisational behaviour, international management, human resources and strategic management*, combined with the broad teaching and learning objectives of the Bachelor of Arts degree.
