Bachelor of Business

La Trobe University

This program helps students experience several business disciplines before choosing a major and customising subjects to fit their career goals. Students study industry-specific areas such as events, sports and tourism or choose a discipline like accounting, economics or finance, and match it with any business or non-business major, minor or elective from across the University. First year offers an overview of business practices and prepares students to take on higher-level problem solving. Our subjects will introduce students to accounting, finance, management, marketing and economics - all key to understanding business environments. Having sampled a range of subjects in first semester, students choose one or two business disciplines to specialise in throughout the course and may choose to study electives in language, politics, Asian studies, journalism, or take a study tour or internship. Students can also do La Trobe Business School subjects at partner universities in France, China and Vietnam.
