The unique design of the Bachelor of Business (3 Year Program) provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary foundation in the fundamentals of business that culminates with an innovative two-subject sequence in which students apply what they have learned and develop their entrepreneurial, leadership and teamwork skills by designing and running an actual business. Enrolment in the Bachelor of Business (3 Year Program) also includes access to the Bond Business Commercialisation Centre and the Bond Business Accelerator that collectively offer a broad array of tools, networking opportunities, mentoring by industry and academic experts and other resources to encourage and support those students interested in furthering their entrepreneurial development

What our students say

"Bond University is one of a kind and leaves a strong impression. I moved to Australia to improve my English. I met amazing people from around the world and I had the opportunity to learn from passionate teachers who motivated me and pushed me to do my best. After completing my English studies I enrolled in a diploma, followed by a Bachelor of Business. Here, I made friends for life but also attended fascinating classes with interesting professors."

Clarisse Lafleur, New Caledonia Bachelor of Business
