CQUniversity School of Business and LawBy Asian Correspondent Feb 21, 2013 9:31PM UTC
The School of Business and Law at CQUniversity is a top choice for Asian students. It’s ideally located in the Asia-Pacific region and offers up-to-date coursework in management, finance, accounting and a host of other business-related fields. The school is the result of a recent merger between School of Commerce and Law and the School of Management and Marketing, enhancing the possibilities for interdisciplinary crossover.
While enrolled in one of CQUniversity’s business programs, students can narrow their field of specialization to one of several different relevant disciplines. They benefit from an optimal mix of theory and practical learning under the oversight of highly-qualified academics with strong industry experience. This combines with strong links to industry players, providing opportunities for competitive work placement and networking potential.
Graduate students enjoy a great deal of latitude at CQUniversity, with the option to pursue specialist electives and develop peripheral skill sets that will enhance their future career options. In addition to the CQUniversity’s master’s degree programs in business, students can also earn professional accreditation, graduate diplomas and other qualifications in areas such as Accounting, Financial Planning and Property. Bear in mind that only the business programs offered through the School of Business and Law are available to international students, with coursework in law reserved for Australian students.
