Purpose of the Program

The Bachelor of Business (Blockchain Enabled Business) program provides the knowledge and skills required in the application and management of blockchain and other distributed-ledger technologies (DLTs) in management and of public and private enterprises through a multi-disciplinary curriculum involving in-depth theoretical and practical learning and professional training, combined with generalist business studies in statistics, accounting, marketing, management, and business IT. 

The program is delivered on-campus through face-to-face teaching and learning, with some online components, where you will be engaged in a variety of learning experiences, including lectures and tutorials, individual assignments, collaborative team-based projects, presentations, and simulation activities. Assessments may include formal examinations, written assignments, presentations, evaluation of case studies, projects, and in-class tests. 

The final year of the program includes the  capstone course ECON1561 Blockchain Application Project, which will provide you the opportunity to critically reflect on, consolidate and apply the theoretical approaches and work practice experiences gained throughout the program. This capstone course in discipline related real-world scenarios, will provide you with the skills and attributes necessary for work-readiness in your chosen career field or to progress successfully to further studies at the graduate level.

This program will prepare you to work in a globalised, international context as a business analyst, consultant, advisor or project leader in the many and varied business sectors that adopt distributed ledger technology, including finance, banking, health, trade, supply chain and logistics, and a range of government agencies and services requiring high level, technical expertise in DLTs; or for postgraduate studies and possible employment in tertiary education and academia.
