Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Business Administration
Australian Catholic University - Brisbane

Course outline

The Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Business Administration double degree is ideal for students who are interested in learning about both science and the commercialisation of science, and wish to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team in this space. The Bachelor of Biomedical Science program enables students to develop an understanding of the natural sciences from biology/physiology to clinical medicine by learning how the human body functions, what causes disease and how disease is treated. The addition of the Bachelor of Business Administration provides students with the skills and ability to apply commercial knowledge and understanding – including accounting, finance, marketing and business law – to a science/research environment, with only one additional year of study. Students will develop broad knowledge, yet specific skills, for a strong foundation to work in an environment where business and health connect.
