A business degree designed for you
Our business core is designed to ensure you graduate career ready. During your foundation year you will explore value creation in business, learn to use financial information to make informed and responsible decisions, and develop your business intelligence and analytical capabilities to interpret data in a meaningful way.
Choose your Capstone Experience
In your final year, you’ll enhance your employability by undertaking your Capstone Experience. This will provide you with an opportunity to gain practical skills or expand your international knowledge. You’ll select from one of the four options below:
1. Global Experience
When you choose to undertake an international experience, you could find yourself travelling across the world to study at one of our partner institutions, such as Stanford University, European Business School, the London School of Economics, UCLA or the Copenhagen Business School.
2. Business Engagement
Apply your entrepreneurial skills, business ideas and ‘out of the box’ thinking to a real business environment. This will enable you to develop your employability skills and prepare you for employment in a professional environment.
3. Business Innovation Lab
Use your entrepreneurial skills such as you work within an interdisciplinary team on an applied business project within a start-up environment. Together you will solve a problem or advance an innovation.
Choose your Commerce or Business degree
One of the Bachelor of Commerce’s outstanding strengths is its diversity. You’ll choose one or two major areas of business in which to specialise and gain expertise, employing learned career management theories to plan your own success.
You can choose from a range of majors in areas such as:
- Advertising, marketing and public relations
- Business law and tax
- Economics, finance and financial planning
- Human resource management and industrial relations
- Information systems and technology
- Logistics and supply chain management
- Management, entrepreneurship and international business
- Property development and valuation
- Tourism, hospitality and events
You can also study the Bachelor of Commerce as part of a double degree with Arts, Engineering, Law or Science.
The Bachelor of Business Administration is an international qualification that develops broad business knowledge with students completing a business and management core aligned to global trends, developing skills across marketing, finance, human resources, project management and strategic management.
In addition to the core units, you’ll study three career focused specialisations (minors) giving you the freedom to personalise your degree based on your career aspirations:
- Two business specialisations from a choice of 17 specialisations
- Plus the choice of either another business specialisation or one from outside the business discipline in areas such as design, data science, journalism or even a new language.

Studying international business at Curtin gave me strong intercultural communication skills, the ability to think differently and challenge the status quo, and to always look on the bright side of problems.
My advice to other entrepreneurs would be to take in feedback from a third party, take the time to reflect on your mistakes (that’s how you learn), and align your team on a combined goal and vision. You also need to establish values and follow them across the entire organisation.
