Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Students of this course are highly sought after both nationally and internationally, as you have the potential to undertake key roles in private industry, research organisations and government departments. By studying science and business management, you'll have the technical skills required of a practising scientist and the business skills to be an effective manager and leader-a highly attractive combination for employers. Your management degree gives you a broad knowledge base of business management, and the applied science component allows you to specialise in one of 4 majors, allowing you the flexibility to create a unique degree. In your first semester you'll undertake foundations courses in chemistry, physics, biology, accounting and management. You can then choose to major in biological sciences, biotechnology, chemistry, or physics while completing the required business management courses. Your final year of study may include an industry-linked science project.
You will experience a variety of learning experiences including laboratory and practical work, fieldwork activities, formal lectures (online and face-to-face) working with industry on self-directed projects. Year 1 and Year 2 - In the first two years you will develop a strong understanding of your particular area of science and business management. In the first semester you will undertake foundations courses in chemistry, physics, biology, accounting and management. You then choose a science major in biological sciences, biotechnology, chemistry or physics, while also completing the required business management courses. Year 2 and 3 - You will continue in your chosen area of science and business management. Year 4 - You will consolidate the theory with professional projects, making sure you are on track to graduate. Your final year of study includes a science project that may be linked to industry.
