Approved Abbreviation: BSc/BBus


Western Sydney University Course Code: 4748.2

AQF Level: 7

CRICOS Code: 089207E


Course Status: CURRENT
This version of the course is available to new and continuing students.


Students should follow the course structure for the course version relevant to the year they commenced. This version applies to students whose commencement year in this course is 2018 or later.

Units may be revised or replaced to ensure students are provided with up to date curriculum throughout their studies, and this may result in a new course version. Refer to the Check My Course Progress page in MySR for the most up to date information for your course.

For commencement year 2016, please refer to: 4748.1 Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business

The Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business double degree program allows graduates to span both the commercial and scientific worlds in a way that single degree graduates cannot. The double degrees permit students to undertake multi-skilling, and offer diverse career paths providing high marketability in multiple areas of expertise. Graduates will have a solid grounding in a core science discipline such as Biological Sciences, Chemistry or Mathematics. This qualification in science is combined with one of the following Majors from the Bachelor of Business: Applied Finance; Economics; Hospitality Management; Human Resource Management; International Business; Management; Marketing; Sport Management. Graduates will be equipped to work as scientists, with a good understanding of business principles and practices. Alternatively, as Business graduates they will be well-prepared to work in science-based industries and institutions.
