Business and Economics
The Business and Economics discipline is one of the most popular program choices for international students coming to Australia.
The main difference between the two areas is that Economics investigates the science of an economy, production distribution and the supply and demand of goods, whilst Business primarily deals with the management aspects of the economy. Specialisations include:
Many business programs include internships, practical assignments and placements that provide students with practical experience. For example, many Certificates are traineeship based and combine workplace experience and theory.
Some vocational and university programs also require placements in the workforce. For example, a student completing a program in Hotel Management may be required to complete a 10 week internship on which they are assessed in an international hotel.
Other programs require students to complete assignments based on working in businesses, such as designing and publishing a brochure for an event.
On graduation from a Business or Economic program students may be eligible for membership to an international professional association below. Full membership to some of these associations requires a person to complete further study. For example a Bachelor of Commerce graduate may complete further courses to become a CPA or Chartered Accountant. By becoming a fully accredited accountant, they will increase their earning capacity.
