The most important thing when you study business is to learn the skills that make you valuable to businesses the moment you graduate. And that’s something you can be sure of when you study with us. Thanks to our strong connections with industry, and our focus on developing graduates who are independent thinkers with practical skills, our graduates enjoy a consistently higher employment rate than the national average.
Your time with us is about more than finding a career. It’s also about discovering new places and experiences. As our student, you can complete part of your degree overseas, and you’ll also get access to a range of international community engagement projects.
Our degrees are flexible so you can make the calls around your career. Study accounting, finance, business administration, commerce, event management, human resource management, information technology, management or marketing. You can even tailor your career with minors such as data analytics, entrepreneurship, Indigenous business studies, international business or occupational health, safety and environment.

“My time at ACU has given me so many positive memories. What resonates with me the most is the opportunities I’ve had to complete components of my degree overseas. I felt privileged to volunteer in Vietnam teaching English to young seminarians.
I also studied overseas through the Paris Outbound Program. Nothing compares to studying in a different country surrounded by new experiences.”
Books, fees, living expenses — costs can be a factor when considering study. But it shouldn’t stop you from pursuing your goals.
