Discover the business course for you
Whether your dream is succeeding in an accredited profession, innovating new business ideas or levelling up in your career, a Deakin course will help you achieve your goals.
Undergraduate (your first degree)
An undergraduate degree is generally completed between two to four years, depending on the pattern of study and any recognition of prior learning you may have. Associate degrees, bachelor and bachelor with honours are all undergraduate degrees.
Postgraduate (further study)
A postgraduate qualification can be undertaken by students who have already completed an undergraduate degree or possess significant, demonstrable work experience. Postgraduate courses include graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, masters and PhDs, as well as specialist programs for industry professionals.
Higher Degrees by Research (supervised research)
Research degrees are research based master’s or PhD programs that focus on a single area of expertise. They provide students the opportunity to carry out highly specialised research under expert supervision.
Non-award courses are generally single units of study that don’t add up to a university qualification. They’re a great way to explore an area of study before committing to a full degree, and can often be used as credit towards a degree course. Short courses and stand-alone study abroad programs also fall under this category.
