               Division of Business – key facts
Core Courses
The majority of programs (with exception of the Law program) include common core courses that
are incorporated into the first year of study of all undergraduate programs in the division
These include:

Flexibility
Our common core structure provides a high degree of flexibility for our students. It enables students to easily
transfer from one program to another (if they find a specialty they wish to focus on). It also provides our
students with the opportunity to pursue an extensive combination of business undergraduate programs as
double degrees.

Double Degree Options
Double degrees allow students to obtain two separate qualifications in four years. The Division of Business
undergraduate programs have been structured so that students can enrol in a single degree and then opt to
do a double degree with another program after their first semester of study right up to the completion of their
single degree.
Double degrees are encouraged as a means to broaden students’ learning experience and maximise their
employability. Double degrees can also include the Bachelor of Arts (International Studies) offered by the
Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences. (See program details for the Bachelor of Arts (International
Studies) under Education Arts and Social Sciences.

Honours
The Division of Business offers a year-long honours program for students who are high achievers in their
undergraduate degree. The program is available as an advanced year of study in a specialty area to provide
selected students with the opportunity to develop further in-depth knowledge and gain a qualification that is
recognised both nationally and internationally. Specialty areas include applied finance, economics, human
resource management, and tourism and leisure management, amongst others.

An Example of what Nutrition Science is
Concerns have been raised about the toxicity of trans-fatty acids in margarines and spreads.
Nutrition science is the study of what happens in the body when we eat various doses of these
compounds and what happens to specific biomarkers such as cell counts, enzyme levels and various
functions in our body. In the same way if a food manufacturer wants to make a health claim about a
soy ingredient, the nutrition science requires some demonstration of what affect that ingredient has on
various human biomarkers.

An Example of what Food Science is
Putting Omega 3 (a “fatty acid” that’s good for you) in bread. Omega 3 is normally found in things like
fish oils …how can we make bread that doesn’t smell or taste like fish oil but still provides a nutritional
benefit? That’s what the food scientist would work out.
    Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science
Program Overview
The scientific disciplines that underpin the discovery, development, formulation, approval, evaluation
and marketing and use of medicines form the basis of the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science. This
versatile degree allows graduates to enter exciting roles in the pharmaceutical industry in such
diverse areas as drug development and clinical trials, manufacturing and production, sales and
marketing as well as management.

Key Messages
    •   Be prepared to work in the growing pharmaceutical industry where there is a current shortage
        of pharmaceutical scientists.
    •   Specialise from 2nd year to focus on areas including drug development and clinical trials,
        manufacturing and production, sales and marketing, and management.
    •   Students study in new state of the art, purpose built laboratories.
    •   Prepares graduates for further studies to become a Registered Pharmacist.
    •   The emphasis is different to Pharmacy in that Pharmaceutical Science has a focus on drug
        discovery and development whereas pharmacy has an emphasis on the therapeutic use of
        medicines.


Professional Outcomes
    •   Work in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, contract research organisations, regulatory
        agencies, and a growing number of research areas covering the use of medicines.
    •   Work in areas including drug development and clinical trials, manufacturing and production,
        sales and marketing as well as management.
