    About Business

    It’s all about management. At some time in your working life you will have to manage something. It might be a section or department of a company or corporation or in the government sector. It might be a hospital ward or it might be your own business.

    Whether you are just starting to consider your future career or have been working for some time, there is a CQUniversity business degree that can be tailored to suit your particular situation.

    Your career or future career may be in consulting, finance, marketing or with a non-profit organisation; or you may be more interested in actually managing the work force.

    If you want to learn how business works, to think, strategise and manage – a business degree may help get you there.


    Career Opportunities

    There are no limitations to where a business degree can take you. Graduates choose from a broad spectrum of occupations including administration  officer/manager, quality manager, human resources manager, marketing manager, logistics manager, purchasing and materials manager – just to name a few. 

    A business career offers diverse employment opportunities and the ability to advance from an entry-level position to supervisor, manager, consultant or senior executive within business, government or non-profit organisations in the industry of your choice.
