Hear from Ellie Brown, Director, NSW Business Chamber, as she shares her thoughts on why engaging with industry in course development is so important, and why she believes this course is just what business students need when setting themselves up for a successful career.
What’s different about this business course?
At Charles Sturt University, we already have a strong suite of business courses that we’re very proud of. We meet regularly with industry to ensure we’re offering what employers need. Recently, our industry contacts told us something curious: there was a growing need for graduates that were business generalists. Graduates that had a true and broad understanding of business and business functions, in addition to specialist knowledge. They wanted graduates who could hit the ground running with whatever was thrown their way. We also knew it was important to give our students the opportunity to enhance their skills if they had a particular area of interest, by including joint study options.
When industry talks, we listen
So we sat down and, side-by-side with our industry contacts, designed a cutting-edge business course – the Bachelor of Business (Industry Professional Practice).
It’s the perfect business package
We hand-picked important theory elements from our business courses and added a range of practical experience and extracurricular support to create this standalone business degree.
Joint study.In addition to your overarching business knowledge, you can gain expertise in a particular area of interest through one of our available joint studies. Choose a specialisation from Accounting and Finance, Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management, Information Technology, Management or Marketing. For example, a joint study in Entrepreneurship will help you take on the world with resilience, creativity and a growth mindset. You’ll have the practical skills and knowledge to develop your own business, work as a corporate innovation manager or establish a start-up venture.
Industry relationships.We’ll work with you to develop the industry relationships you’re looking for in your career, right from the beginning of the course.
