First year students will gain foundational knowledge and skills in the basics of business and personal and professional development. In your second year, you will begin to personalise your course by specialising in one of the three streams. Final year students will apply their cumulative knowledge through two capstone projects - entering the industry with experience and knowledge that can be applied immediately. All subjects are taught by experienced lecturers with business industry experience and Masters or PhD qualifications.A degree that opens doors
