Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

This combined degree program provides students with the opportunity to increase the depth and breadth of their study in relevant disciplines within Business and Commerce whilst completing two awards over four years of full-time study or part-time equivalent.

A combined degree program enhances the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills.
