University Handbook 2018

Business Majors

Business majors – primary majors

Following are majors that may be attached to the Bachelor of Business, the Bachelor of Business (Accounting), and the Bachelor of Accounting.

By definition the major must be 120 Credit Points and will include no more than 30 Credit Points at first-year level; 30 or more Credit Points at second-year level; and 45 or more Credit Points at third-year level to fulfil the requirements of the major. Note that not all majors are available on all campuses.

Where a student wishes to take an approved subject relevant to the major, approval must be given by the Head of Department or his/her delegate.

Where a subject appears as both a core in their course and a chosen second major or minor, an approved substitute subject must be taken to complete the second major or minor.

Note: Teaching periods are  provided as a guide only and subject to change. Please refer to Subject Search guide for further details.
