What can I do with a Bachelor of Business?

A business degree prepares you for a career in business, which can widely apply to any sector or industry, and therefore sets you up for any future imaginable. As business touches multiple aspects of modern human society,  a business degree gives you knowledge and skills that employers want and that translate across a large number of diverse roles and industries. USQ’s Bachelor of Business is skills-focused, employability-driven and offers a wide range of majors to ensure you graduate job-ready in your chosen industry.

Our degrees focus on developing the knowledge you need to succeed. There are several career prospects available to you after completing a Business and Management degree:

  • Accountant 
  • Financial advisor

You’ll also find that many of the principles you learn are transferable across a range of industries, no matter where you end up working. 

How long does a Bachelor of Business take?

A Bachelor of Business will take you approximately three years to complete. Some students choose to study part-time which increases the time it takes to finish the required courses. You have a maximum of six years to complete the degree.

You may also choose to study the Bachelor of Business as part of a double degree to give you the flexibility to tailor your degree to your ambition. Completing a double degree means you receive two testamurs (official certificates) – one for each of the degrees you complete when you graduate. 

A double degree will take you approximately four years to complete, giving you plenty of flexibility in choosing majors to shape your studies to suit your future goals.
