The Bachelor of Business Management program takes three years of full-time study to complete, or the equivalent part-time.
View the program study plan.
The standard full-time load for a program is 8 units per semester (this usually means 4 courses worth 2 units each per semester). Full-time study is defined as 75% or more of the standard full-time load for a program (i.e. at least 6 units per semester, or 3-4 courses, for most programs).
International students must be enrolled in 8 units per semester.
It is estimated that for each course a student would have approximately 3-5 contact hours in lectures and tutorials, and would also need to do additional hours of study.
Australian students can study part-time (usually 1 to 2 courses per semester). In some cases, classes are scheduled multiple times per week and students can choose either day or evening classes. This does not occur in all programs. If you intend to study solely in the evenings, please check the availability and timing of classes.
Dual degrees enable you to study several areas of interest at once and graduate with two degrees, saving up to a year of study when compared to studying two separate programs. The additional knowledge and skills can significantly broaden your career options. Please note you must satisfy the prerequisites of both programs to gain entry.
You can combine the Bachelor in Business Management with degrees in the following areas:
What outcomes to expect from your degree
The Bachelor of Business Management opens up opportunities for a wide range of careers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

It is also ideal for those who want to prepare for a career in a specific discipline including marketing, advertising and e-business, but want a good basic grounding in the principles of business management.
