Program Overview

Unlock your full potential with the Bachelor of Business (BBus). Be equipped with the tools to help organisations become more efficient, profitable and sustainable, so they can adapt and thrive in changing times.

Why study a BBus?

Ranked in the top 1% of business schools globally, Waikato is proud to offer the best undergraduate business degree in New Zealand.

Our Bachelor of Business (BBus) takes you beyond the textbook to tackle practical, real-world challenges facing companies, government, and community organisations. This hands-on learning approach will provide invaluable insights to supercharge your future career.

This degree is underpinned by academic excellence, and you'll be taught by passionate teachers who are also highly regarded business consultants.

But what really sets the BBus apart is the focus on versatile skills. Today's employers want graduates who can lead people, build successful teams, communicate ideas, think creatively, solve problems, analyse data to find trends, plan and deliver projects, and much more.

And that's exactly what this degree delivers to set you up for success. It provides a strong foundation of knowledge across core business areas such as strategy, economics, and data analytics, along with advanced expertise in your major/minor subjects.

We've designed the Bachelor of Business to offer students more flexibility and choices so that your papers align closely to your career interests.

You will gain the insights and technical skills to understand customer needs and changing market forces, assess financial charts, create new products and services, implement digital technologies to enhance productivity, and strategise for the future.

Economics

Studying Economics will help you develop the analytical skills needed to be an effective problem solver of real-life issues. You'll learn how to apply your skills to issues ranging from employment and housing, to public health, transport and pollution

Why study Economics?

Studying Economics will help you see the world in a different light; and understand how to apply this new perspective to help resolve issues in our society. You'll learn how to help people, governments and businesses make better decisions about using natural and financial resources to meet different goals.

Economists contribute to government decision-making on many different issues, such as shaping new laws and taxes, or advising on international trade agreements. They can also be involved in recommending incentives and penalties geared towards changing people's behaviour, such as encouraging people to leave their car at home.

You'll learn how to explain the reasons for different market structures, analyse the implications of government policy, anticipate how people might react to price changes, and demonstrate the gains from trade.

If you're passionate about business, current affairs, finance or maths then economics may be a good fit for you. Economics brings together ideas from many different areas: politics, psychology, sociology, geography, law and statistics.
