The Bachelor of Business Studies has been introduced to meet the demand for a flexible, generalist, open learning undergraduate degree in business. The course draws upon the extensive portfolio of subjects already developed by the Faculty of Commerce, the subject offerings of other faculties of CSU and any tertiary study a student may previously have undertaken. The course allows students to construct a program of study that they, individually, consider will best meet their future needs. It allows them to select the skills, knowledge and attributes that they believe will be required of them upon graduation and which are inherent in the existing subjects upon which they will build their program of study. Students may enter the Bachelor of Business Studies without any tertiary experience or be admitted from an approved range of domestic and international programs in both business and non-business areas with up to sixteen subjects credit.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Studies are entitled to credits if they have completed approved subjects. Approved subjects will include subjects in applicable TAFE courses, or subjects in relevant programs conducted by approved private providers, within ten years of admission to the degree. Credit is normally granted for subjects completed in relevant Certificates and Diplomas. Subjects completed in overseas qualifications will also be considered for credit towards the Bachelor of Business Studies degree.
To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 192 points (24 subjects).
All distance education students are required to have access to a personal computer (IBM PC or compatible) and spreadsheet software capable of reading Excel and/or Lotus 1-2-3 files. It is recommended that distance education students have access to appropriate hardware and software to enable them to communicate electronically with the University. The current specifications are available upon request.
