The Bachelor of Business (BBus) is an undergraduate degree comprising 24 units taken over 3 years of full-time study (or part-time equivalent).
In your first year as a BBus student, you will take core units introducing accounting, law, marketing, management and microeconomics. Before the end of your first year, you will be able to nominate a business major in which to specialise - either accounting, financial planning, human resource management or management. The major will comprise 8 units from that discipline (9 for the Accounting major).
Alongside your major, you will also take core units in research skills. This works towards a major project in your final year in which you will research a real-world organisation, diagnose issues and present solutions.
You can enrich your major with a minor in a second business discipline. Sheridan offers minors in business law, economics, financial planning, human resource management, international business, marketing, management and not-for-profit management. Alternatively, you may decide to broaden your studies by selecting general electives from faculties such as the humanities and social sciences or mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences.
All undergraduate students also take one core unit per year from the School of Christian Studies.
