Course Structure

Study mode: On-campus
Maximum time to complete: 8 years

The Bachelor of Business is composed of 24 units (144 credit points) of study over six semesters with a single major. If the option of two majors are studied the course normally takes seven semesters. All units are worth six credit points. The degree consists of Business core units, major and minor units, Christian Studies units, and Elective unit/s.

For a two major program, your second major field will absorb many of these elective units.  Elective units can be from any other undergraduate course.  If 4 'cohesive' units from another field in Business are studied, it could constitute a minor.  A unit of internship in this field can also be included as an elective.
