The ‘Bachelor of Business Administration’ is an online program that emphasises leadership and professional skill development integrated with learning about drivers for organisational change. Whilst the program equips graduates with knowledge and capabilities around human resource management, marketing and finance, the emphasis is on learning that supports practice as a manager with many and broad responsibilities in complex and unstable environments. Learning is achieved through applying information and theory to case studies and real-world work situations and includes personal reflection. The program is best suited to those aiming for leadership and management roles in a range of organisations. Most participants will already have work experience to which their learning can be applied.
