The Bachelor of Business follows six broad bands of study designed to give you a thorough understanding of the role of Accountants in the operation of small and large businesses.
Understanding finance is central to the role of successful managers and entrepreneurs, and the major in accounting provides a thorough understanding of the role of accounting processes and principles, finance, financial reporting and planning in business and corporations. The eight accounting subjects cover basic accounting and business decision-making processes through to the more specialised Accounting for Taxation and Auditing and Assurance.
The management subjects are designed to give a thorough understanding of the role of management in the operation of a business. From introduction to management to preparation of a business plan. Students learn about strategic planning, leadership, and organising and implementing strategies that will enable a business to successfully attain its goals.
Covering in detail the functions of marketing within a business, the subject becomes increasingly complex as the degree programme progresses, and has a balance between broad theories of marketing and the attainment of practical knowledge about the design and implementation of marketing strategies. Topics covered include: Introduction to Marketing, the Marketing Mix, Buying Behaviour, Segmentation, Marketing Communication and Marketing Ethics and Social Responsibility.
The law subjects provide a good understanding of the legal environment in which business operates. Fundamentals of Law deals with topics such as the legal principles of contract and tort law, and the main business organisational structures and their relative advantages or disadvantages. Company Law covers topics such as the relationships between business structures and law. It also identifies constitutional, social and legal frameworks which impact upon business and corporation planning.
Human Resource Management
Managers and entrepreneurs must be able to manage and lead other people. The Human Resource Management subjects in the degree programme provide knowledge in relation to the role of HRM in business organisations. The degree programme also covers the legal framework within which we operate, including Occupational Health and Safety and the new Industrial Relations system in Australia. Teaching also includes strategic HRM and the role of training and evaluation of performance as a function in the growth of a business.
