About Course

Our three-year Bachelor of Business will equip you with the flexible skills needed to work in today’s small to large enterprises, using your expertise to help them thrive, grow and succeed in the 21st century.

In first year you’ll get a grounding in all the core areas of business, from accounting, economics and finance through to digital business, marketing, strategy and supply chain management.

Discover which career pathways you’re most passionate about, before specialising in up to two major subjects later on. You can opt to take a second major or 1-2 minors in almost any other undergraduate subject offered at your campus.

The Bachelor of Business will prepare you to play a crucial part in helping organisations run their operations in a responsible way, adapt to the needs of changing markets, and drive innovation processes to develop cutting-edge products or services. With the Bachelor of Business, you’ll develop the bold and curious mindset that today’s employers are looking for, with a good mix of analytical, financial, decision-making, teamwork, project management and communication skills.

A key strength of the Bachelor of Business is that it includes a work-integrated learning paper in third year. You'll gain practical industry experience with an organisation - such as an internship or applied research project - and have the opportunity to test your skills in the real world.

Finance

Finance at Waikato is focused on money management, investments, banking and credit, the share, bond and commodity markets, and financial analysis and decision making. You'll learn about corporate finance, portfolio selection, capital markets, corporate finance, personal financial planning, and the governance of public and private organisations.

Practical assignments will prepare you for exactly what you'll encounter in your financial career. For example, students get to work on a funds simulation project using real data, and prepare a report on a publicly listed New Zealand or Australian company, while playing the role of a trainee investment analyst.

If you enjoy mathematics, accounting, economics, and using analytical tools to find the meaning behind numbers, than finance may be the right fit for you.
