Bachelor of Business Studies overview

CSU's Bachelor of Business Studies provides a broad-based business qualification where you can select the subjects that interest you and meet your career goals. This is CSU's most flexible undergraduate Business degree, offering the opportunity to select from a diverse range of subjects, build your own program of study, and choose from a range of flexible study options to meet your needs - including study at a CSU campus, a CSU Study Centre, a TAFE campus or by distance education.
