Selected major: Communication Design

Explore the communication imperative in a commercial environment and learn how to respond confidently to design problems. Explore an area of specialisation and produce a portfolio that demonstrates diverse idea generation and production skills.

Selected major: Marketing

Marketing is so much more than selling products and services to customers; it’s about finding innovative ways to bring value and meaning to your customers with the aim of strengthening brand loyalty, as well as increasing sales.  

In this major, you'll develop the advanced marketing and managerial skills needed to think strategically and succeed in this exciting industry. 

You’ll learn how to research the market, understand consumer behaviour, logically design a marketing plan, promote a brand, deploy digital marketing strategy, and use data to inform marketing decisions that deliver the integrated marketing strategies.  

Employment in the marketing sector has experienced strong growth and according to joboutlook.gov.au this is expected to continue.

The Bachelor of Design/Bachelor of Business equips students with the knowledge and skills essential for a career that encompasses the challenging and dynamic area of design and business sectors. By undertaking this double degree, graduates will be able to capitalise on opportunities in both the design and business professions.

Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. This double degree has two units where you’ll have the opportunity to work on industry-linked projects. In the Design Capstone Project, you’ll work on an industry-linked project relevant to your design major, and in Industry Consulting Project (BSB3009), you’ll work in teams to solve a business problem briefed to you by our industry partners.
