This program is designed to suit students who already have significant working experience or for those who want to extend studies in business and related disciplines by choosing from a range of second majors and minors.
The following information relates to the Melbourne City campus program.
The program consists of 24 courses (each 12 credit points) and includes:
- 8 compulsory common business core courses
- 8 business discipline major courses
- 8 flexible courses.
The 8 flexible courses can be selected from 3 options:
- a second business discipline major (8 courses)
- a compulsory business discipline minor (4 courses) plus second minor (any discipline)
- a compulsory business discipline minor (4 courses) plus 4 electives.
You must complete both Business Finance (BAFI1008) and Taxation 1 (LAW2453) in order to meet the Financial Planning Association of Australia professional accreditation requirements and, therefore, to be eligible for membership of FPA, as well as to ensure compliance with RG146. These two courses are also available through the Financial Planning and Taxation Minor (PDF 183 KB), which is strongly recommended for the Bachelor of Business (Financial Planning) students.
Note: You will not be able to complete a second major if you are seeking professional accreditation and membership.
If you select a second business major, you can select from:
- human resource management
- information systems
- logistics and supply chain management
Business minors (PDF 201KB 14p) can be selected from the same disciplines as listed above, as well as behavioural business, business analysis, financial planning and taxation, human resource practice, IS security and risk management, law or the flexible business minor. Other minors can be selected from many disciplines offered across RMIT.
You are advised to check detailed information about which elective and minor courses are offered each year, as well as general information about professional practice requirements.
If you choose electives as your flexible courses, you may wish to consider business internship electives, global experience options such as internships or study tours, or BUSM4599 Business Skills for Start Ups, a course designed for students interested in starting up their own business, covering the stages from concept through to launch.
