About the course
The Stanley College Bachelor of Business (BBus) is a broad-based and comprehensive course. The course is designed to offer both breadth and depth in core business areas and to provide graduates with a wide range of knowledge, critical reasoning skills and abilities needed in contemporary business. The BBus course meets the requirements of an AQF level seven qualification upon completion. The BBus consists of six semesters and incorporates 24 units delivered over a period of three years for a full-time study load. Part-time or reduced study load enrolment is available and must be completed within six years. The curriculum progresses from fundamental subject areas in the first year, through slightly more specialized topics in the second, to themes and activities central to which is a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement in the third year. WIL is essential to the approach taken by the course. WIL activities will be staged progressively with the objective of leading students towards an optimal workplace experience. Thus, these activities will tend to focus on self-awareness and development in the first year, knowing the Australian workplace in the second, and on application of learning adapted to a business work placement in the final year. Many assessment assignments can reflect specific interests in these areas, and students will be guided in keeping a portfolio of evidence of how their course learning contributes to the development of their personal, professional, and employability skills. Students will select, for inclusion in their Portfolios, specific assessment tasks they have completed, with lecturer feedback, along with reflective notes of their own, and, where appropriate, peer feedback. The WIL learning experience, incorporated throughout each year of the curriculum, will provide students with the ability to meet the demands of industry and contribute to society. The Business Practicum unit in the final year offers students the opportunity to work within a business or organisation to consolidate personal confidence, discipline knowledge and employability skills. Graduates will be able to communicate in a persuasive manner, think critically, contribute to solving business problems, and use initiative to undertake innovative projects in a professional manner and in accordance with ethical business practices.Graduates will also become responsible, self-managed, lifelong learners who positively contribute to communities. They will aspire to become members of professional groups, organisations and industry peak bodies. Finally, graduates will gain the skills, knowledge and attributes to achieve their personal goals and ambitions and/or to pursue post-graduate studies
