Take your career in any direction
A business degree gives you the foundation to take your career just about anywhere. Business is present in nearly every aspect of society, from advertising to real estate, sport development to human resources and management consulting to logistics.
A Bachelor of Business gives you a solid foundation in all aspects of business plus in-depth knowledge and experience in your areas of interest. More than half of Fortune 100 CEOs have a degree in business, economics or accounting. Consider the number of entrepreneurs, business owners and top professionals that also have a business degree—your opportunities are endless.
Study business at Griffith
Learn from the best
When you study business at Griffith, you’re studying among the world's best. We are recognised experts in a range of business disciplines and are accredited by the AACSB – International, which means your degree will be recognised internationally for its high quality.
Foundation first year
In your first year of study you'll explore core business skills and concepts and have the opportunity to try some different courses before choosing your major (or majors) in second year. First year is also a great time to get to know the students you'll be studying alongside for most of your degree.
Choose your specialisation
You can choose to specialise in one of 13 diverse business majors:
- Asian business
- Employment relations
- Entrepreneurship and self employment
- Event management
- Human resource management
- International business
- Logistics and supply chain management
- Real estate and property development
- Sport management
- Sustainable enterprise
- Tourism management
If you don’t want to complete a major, you can choose from a range of courses that provide broad knowledge for a career in business management. Or you can expand your expertise and build a degree to match your career aspirations with a second business major, a politics and public policy major, or a major from the Bachelor of Commerce.
If you’re not sure which majors to choose just yet, that’s okay. Once you enrol you can try some different courses before you choose the combination that’s right for you.
Put theory into practice with a local or global project-based internship or Community Internship. You’ll gain professional experience working on a project for a real organisation, plus credit towards your degree.

With the flexibility of studying on-campus, online, part-time or full-time, over two or three trimesters each year, you can manage your student life.

During four years studying a business and graphic design double degree, Jackie Babbage worked three different roles at three different businesses and completed a university internship with an app development company.

Jackie is now involved in the development of marketing strategy, managing the implementation of content and the ongoing improvement of marketing and online presence of all associated Riverlife brands.
