Business continues to be one of the most popular qualifications – and for good reason. A qualification in business equips graduates with universally sought-after skills and offers opportunities in so many diverse roles and industries. The Bachelor of Business is ideal for those who want to make a tangible contribution to the success and growth of a business, push boundaries and challenge the status quo.

Whether you choose to stay local or are ready to go global, a degree in business can fast-track your climb up the corporate ladder in any sector.

The ICMS Bachelor of Business is designed to position you for business success in any industry, with a focus on future-proofing you for adaptability in a rapidly changing world.

The Bachelor of Business offers:

26-subjects in total

  • 12 core business subjects
  • 12 elective subjects
  • 2 WIL (Work Integrated Learning) subjects

Bachelor of Business subjects focus on developing core business skills such as marketing; agile leadership and innovation problem solving, collaboration and managing people; strategic planning and innovative problem solving; and of course financial literacy. Our goal is to develop business leaders ready to take advantage of all that an international business career offers.

Business subjects are supplemented by elective subjects from a range of business areas. Your choices might include electives in marketing, international tourism, entrepreneurship, hospitality management, sports management and event management. You could also pick from specialist contemporary areas of business such as leadership, innovation or project management. This allows you to build a personalised educational experience that reflects your interest and ambitions.

At ICMS we believe that the best learning experience combines practical and ‘real world’ experience with a strong academic foundation. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects are built into your degree, meaning you graduate with more than a degree – you’ll graduate with real world experience – and will have gained invaluable industry connections.

We have an impressive network of industry partners. These leading companies provide our ICMS community with invaluable industry insight and experience. When it is time to embark on your industry training, we work closely with them to find a suitable placement that is the best fit for your skills, interests and professional goals. Your industry training could take you to a major city, regional area or regional area in Australia. You could even take up a position in an international city. It is all part of finding the best placement for you. Not only is this an invaluable experience, it is also a chance to grow your professional network. For many of our graduates this experience introduces them to their future employers.

The Bachelor of Business is career-focused, and aims to develop contemporary knowledge and skills needed for success. This means:

  • Real-world assessments
  • Strong industry relationships
  • Developing 21st century skills, such as digital literacy, agile leadership and innovative problem solving
  • Everybody gets to complete a work placement in a business that aligns to their preferred industry
  • Access to personal study assistance and wellness support
  • An emphasis on professionalism which includes: business cards, interview preparation, wearing ‘business attire’ in class, setting up LinkedIn profiles, access to the Career Hub, mentoring from high achieving students and alumni, working with your Work Integrated Facilitator on your CV
  • In your final year of the Bachelor of Business, you will have the opportunity to participate in a ‘capstone’ subject, which allows you to choose a special area of focus within business, as a major project to test your abilities in addressing contemporary issues or problems in your area of interest.
