Students must complete three (3) subjects plus the Beyond Bond Program.
In this subject, students will be introduced to critical thinking and clear expression. They will evaluate arguments, identify assumptions, judge patterns of inference, and recognise and apply various methods of reasoning. Students will learn how to clarify and visually represent their thinking to make better decisions, evaluate and use evidence, and communicate more effectively in their writing and speaking. Using these skills, students will structure and write an academic essay and deliver an oral presentation.Read more
Integrity, and the courage and capability to act on one’s sense of responsibility, are key components of a thriving life. Responsibility, Integrity and Civic Discourse fosters students’ lifelong commitment to responsible discourse and action in all spheres of human interaction, recognising the global aspect to contemporary citizenship. Students explore the complex relationship between character, responsible action, and creative critical thinking, learning how to reflect on and articulate their unique sense of global citizenship and responsibility. By accentuating the importance of justification and articulation of the reasons for our actions, students exercise their critical, communicative, and cooperative capabilities so that they can thrive with integrity in the multiple contexts of action they will face as private, civic, professional, and global citizens.Read more
In today's work and study environments, individuals often encounter complex, open-ended problems that necessitate collaboration in both physical and virtual realms and across sectors and specialisations. In Collaboration for Global Change, students engage collaboratively to craft genuine solutions for global issues. In this context, students link their endeavours to specific sustainable development goals, thus positioning their actions as contributions to global citizenship. As they learn to defend their ideas and perspectives, students apply critical thinking, design thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills within a problem-based learning environment. This comprehensive approach equips them with the necessary skills and mindset to excel in future work, academic pursuits, and global initiatives.Read more
To keep up with the ever-changing work landscape, we aim to help our students future-proof their careers by developing broader employability skills that are actively sought out by employers. Unique to our University, Beyond Bond is a compulsory professional development program with a practical, activity-based approach that is integrated into all undergraduate degrees.
Students must complete the following one hundred and ninety credit points (190CP) of subjects.
This subject provides a broad and important foundation in key accounting concepts, tools, and processes of the discipline.

Both manual and computerised accounting systems are used to demonstrate the accounting process. Users of financial information and the decisions they make based on accounting information are considered throughout the subject.Read more
Considering the increasingly complex environmental, social and governance challenges facing today's business organisations, it is essential to develop an integrated understanding of business and its role in society. In this subject, students will be challenged to explore a multinational business from multiple perspectives to develop a systems view of the organisation and its global business environment. Through readings, discussions, case studies, projects and other learning activities, students will develop a more nuanced view of the purpose and functioning of business, the expectations of stakeholders, and the challenges and opportunities inherent in addressing those expectations. This exploration will include understanding the functional areas of business as well as how each can work together in an overall design to enable an integrative and innovative approach to responsible and sustainable business.Read more

You will learn the fundamentals of digital technologies that are used in an environment of continuous change. You will discover the concepts and processes necessary to build digital literacy for professional and organisational change, including artificial intelligence, mobile and cloud computing, big data and analytics, robotics, information security, and virtual and augmented environments. You will progress from literacy about these technologies to introductory levels of fluency necessary to lead capacity-building programs for digital transformation. You will also use enterprise project and communication tools to demonstrate fluency.Read more
Business Law is a subject offered by the Faculty of Law for Bond Business School students and other non-law students. The subject provides an introduction to the law regulating business in Australia today. It seeks to develop students' knowledge and understanding of the Australian legal system and sources of law in Australia, the commercial legal responsibilities and risks of doing business, key aspects of the law of torts, contracts and consumer protection, and the law associated with starting, managing, financing and closing companies and other business entities. By focusing on the legal responsibilities and risks that have a substantial impact on business, the subject highlights the important role that law plays in business decision-making.Read more
This subject introduces students to the principles, theory and practice of sustainable development and its role in our society.

This subject provides basic knowledge and skills required to manage a project or to be an effective member of a project team. It covers the nine functions of project management (cost, time, quality, scope, risk, communication, human resource, procurement and integration) as defined by the Australian Institute of Project Management, tracking a project through its various lifecycles from inception through to completion by the use of a case study.Read more
This subject unpacks what is meant by a projectised organisation and the context that enables project management tools and techniques to deliver organisational objectives. It looks at the standards that underpin project management, the various approaches that are used to achieve successful outcomes, and reflects on past, present and future trends. Topics covered include the projectised organisation, Waterfall versus Agile, using the PMBOK® Guide, project baselines and deliverables, ethical practice, the Project Management Office (PMO), organisational maturity, project manager certification, professional formation, life-long learning strategies, career specialisations, and the future of project management.Read more
Change happens. But implementing sustained improvements to existing organisational processes requires an ability to conceptualise an appropriate response that adds competitive advantage and to deliver an appropriate response that engages a broad range of stakeholders. The technique of benefits realisation forms the framework for process change, and socialising the change is largely about ensuring people are engaged. The ADKAR model is the basis adopted in this subject for implementing sustained improvements and is fundamental to ultimate project success. An innovative mindset is necessary to ensure that change is for the better and resultant ‘change reactions’ are positive. Design thinking is explored as a basis for empathising, defining, ideating, prototyping and testing new solutions. This subject adopts an interactive and authentic learning environment, where students work in teams, with industry partners as clients, to implement proposals for change in real organisational settings.Read more

This subject explores how schedules are managed from the initiation phase of a project or program until its closure phase. Topics covered include decomposition, predecessors and successors, task duration, Critical Path Method (CPM), Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT), and schedule compression. Successful outcomes can occur when on-time delivery is realised.Read more
