  • Program Overview

    The Bachelor of Business Administration will equip you with a thorough understanding of specialised business functions, including business management, economics, finance, technology, marketing, business communications, statistics, law and people management. The final year includes an applied New Venture Creation project that integrates multiple disciplines and will prepare you to be work ready.

    The range of electives includes public relations, professional sales, international business protocols, buyer behaviour, leadership, compliance and risk management, and customer relationship management. The course prepares you to explore more specialised areas such as accounting, marketing, international business or human resources.

    After graduating from the course you may be employed in relevant graduate trainee programs in banking or government sectors, or seek opportunities with multinational companies, local councils, government agencies, the banking and finance sector and marketing organisations.

    At Holmesglen we are committed to supporting our students to achieve their learning goals, so we provide small classes with hands-on experiences. With small classes, you won't be lost in the crowd. You can expect to join approximately 80 other students* in this course: you'll soon get to know your fellow students and feel part of Holmesglen - and your teachers will know you as an individual.

    Students commencing a higher education program must attend Orientation.
