Your professors remain current in their field, are open to new ideas, and embrace an approach to teaching and learning that allows you to develop your critical and creative thinking skills.

Additional information

There's an unmet demand for accounting education given the large-scale retirements of baby boomers from the professional workforce. This new Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree has been designed to fill this gap.

With a focus on your success, the new Honours BBA degree features an innovative educational approach that guides you in the development of your critical, creative and reflective thinking capacity. This will allow you to develop your personal awareness and learn to fully evaluate business processes so that you’re able to draw and articulate defensible conclusions in response to complex business situations.

In your final year, you'll complete a community-based Integrated Industry Project or Research Thesis. In parallel with your academic studies, you’ll also develop a Creative Learning Portfolio, which fosters your self-awareness, reflective practice and an open mindset through the integration of activities.
