The Bachelor of Business and Commerce provides an international degree and is the link between the overseas offerings of the faculty (Sunway and South Africa) and the on-shore program taught across the Berwick, Gippsland and Peninsula campuses.
The course is designed to provide maximum flexibility and to allow depth and breadth in the study of the major business and commerce discipline areas. Its structure provides the capacity to tailor applications and focus in different contexts and different environments while ensuring knowledge of the theory, principles and core elements in the relevant discipline areas.
The Bachelor of Communication is concerned with both new and traditional communications technologies such as print, film, television and electronic media. It explores the practical operations of mass communications technologies as well as their social and cultural aspects.
