The Associate Degree of Business is the perfect way to start your degree in business at university. An associate degree is a qualification in its own right, but it is also a pathway to a bachelor degree. This means that the 16 courses that you study can count towards a bachelor degree. In addition to the core courses, you can select between minors in Accounting, Economics, Emergent Leadership, Human Resource Management, Information Systems Management, or Marketing to suit your career goals. It is best to have a chat with UniSQ’s Degree Advisors before finalising your decision on courses. If you are considering moving into a bachelor degree on completion of your Associate Degree, your choice of courses may have an impact later. The core courses in the Associate Degree of Business offer opportunities for early connection with peers and industry partners. These connections create a sense of community that helps build academic success and drive careers forward. Graduates will have general business knowledge suitable for a career in the public or private sector. For more information, visit Associate Degree of Business at UniSQ.
