Welcome to the School of Business and Tourism
The world isn’t discipline-based, so here at the School of Business and Tourism, we’re not either. We begin your studies with real projects that encompass all of the disciplines we teach – just like you find in a real business or enterprise.
Whether you plan to study at bachelor or post-graduate level, we produce tech-savvy, business-smart and responsible graduates who hit the ground running. When you go for your first job, you’ll have an edge because you will already have experience.
We invite you to study with us.
The business professionals of tomorrow need more than an understanding of core business disciplines – they need adaptability, curiosity, the ability to think critically and the agility to respond to an ever-changing future. Our professional and personal lives are dominated by technology. The jobs of tomorrow require agile specialists who can create, deliver and distribute content and resources seamlessly across channels and technologies. Our degrees offer not only a thorough grounding in the technology and communications of today, but the ability to see what’s coming next.
Our business degrees have a strong emphasis on applied knowledge, supported by industry internships and the opportunity to study abroad. Our focus is on responsible business, with sustainability, ethical management and technology embedded in our courses.
The School's postgraduate degrees are perfect for those wishing to gain an edge or upskill after several years in the workforce. Our academics are passionate about adding that extra edge to your career in order to support your move to the next level. Whether IT, business, finance or project management, we have a course of study that will fit around your work commitments, finetune the skills you have developed along the way, and add value to your career.
