AUT - Bachelor of Business & Bachelor of Science (BBus/BSc)


Bachelor of Business & Bachelor of Science (BBus/BSc)

Imagine a qualification that satisfies your love of science and gives you the business nous to apply it to the real world. The Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science conjoint programme of study does just that. You choose a major from the Bachelor of Business and couple it with a relevant major from the Bachelor of Science. This gives you more career options and lets you apply your knowledge to different sectors. For example, if you study Applied Chemistry and Marketing you will be well prepared for a career in the marketing of chemical products. Alternatively, if you study Food Science and Management you will be well prepared to work as a Food Scientist and later move into company management. Studying Environmental Studies and Tourism prepares graduates for careers in the growth area of eco-tourism. Being doubly qualified provides you with a wide choice of initial employment opportunities and greater flexibility as your career develops.
