Admission to our undergraduate degree programs usually requires successful completion of a senior secondary school qualification similar to the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the highest educational award in New South Wales schools.
This combined degree program provides students with the opportunity to increase the depth and breadth of their study in relevant disciplines within Business and Business Analytics 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.
