The Bachelor of Business is a contemporary degree developed in collaboration with industry and designed to meet the needs of businesses now and in the future. Businesses are facing an unprecedented number of challenges and opportunities stemming from digital disruption and the rapid adoption of new technologies. There has never been a more exciting time to start your career in business, whether you are looking for a career in the corporate world or aspiring to be an entrepreneur.  

With close ties to industry and a strong focus on real-world work experience, Federation Business School is renowned for producing job-ready graduates by providing students with industry placements, internships, and real-life projects during their studies. Our graduates gain a solid foundation in business management, entrepreneurship, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, creativity and innovation, and interpersonal skills. These skills are in high demand from employers and central to succeeding in the rapidly changing business world.  

Federation Business School’s undergraduates complete a common first year by studying foundation business courses in Management, Marketing, Creativity and Innovation, Accounting and Finance, Economics, Statistics, and Law. After the first year, you will have the flexibility to switch to any undergraduate degree at Federation Business School. 

From the second year, you will choose a major stream of study (specialisation) in Management, Marketing or Banking and Finance. You will also select interdisciplinary electives such as Information Technology, Psychology, Sociology, Environmental Science and/or Outdoor Studies, depending on your interests.

You could also gain valuable experience through an overseas study tour to Nepal, Samoa or Fiji (subject to COVID travel restrictions) through the New Colombo Plan (NCP). The NCP is an initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study in the region.
