Selected major: Perspectives on Globalisation

Globalisation and international relations have transformed in the twenty first century, offering the potential for stronger human relationships with distant cultures connecting in an instant, but also the danger of heightened conflicts and tensions.  

Delve into the social, cultural and political trajectories that have unfolded in the digital age. With a focus on both diverse Indigenous and civilizational points of view, open your mind to the world’s cultures, beliefs and systems. Develop essential cultural competency skills and think critically about how the creative possibilities generated by globalisation can be fostered while the threats it poses are mitigated.

In this multi-disciplinary, you’ll learn about sociology, politics, history and Indigenous studies.

Selected major: Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Entrepreneurs are innovators. They see opportunities, anticipate needs, solve problems, make plans, take risks, and build teams.

Whether you’re hatching an idea, wanting to know how to launch your own venture, or looking to create competitive advantage within an existing organisation, this major provides the tools and knowledge.

With plenty of hands-on learning, you’ll develop the type of fresh thinking required to build, launch and scale a start-up business or social venture.

Discover how to differentiate an idea from a real opportunity, use innovation theory to maximise that opportunity, and learn how to create desirable, viable business models. 

Develop your strategic thinking and planning skills, explore business models, learn to interpret sales and marketing opportunities, build a team and source capital funding.

With a double degree in a Bachelor of Arts/ Bachelor of Business you’ll be set to become a well-rounded businessperson who understands what’s good for the world.

Build your business, management, and operations knowledge so you’re ready to make your mark on the business world. Then go deeper, hone your critical thinking and communication skill set as you explore key global social, economic and cultural issues impacting the operation of contemporary society.

With this combination of degrees - you'll be rich in transferable skills essential for the future workforce.
