Bachelor of Business (BBus)

The AIS Bachelor of Business (BBus) programme is designed to help our students develop general and specialist skills across the business sector, both in New Zealand and internationally.

A Bachelor of Business at AIS comprises 21 courses at Stages 1, 2 and 3, with elective subjects plus options to specialise in Accounting, Management and Marketing. An AIS BBus qualification will provide career opportunities in industries such as international trade and finance, e-commerce, international relations, accounting, marketing, management, import/exporting, commercial law and self-employment or entrepreneurship.

The degree can be awarded with or without one of the following specialisations:

Accounting, Management, Marketing

The BBus (Accounting) is accredited by CPA Australia and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ). With careful selection of your electives you can satisfy the academic requirements for admission to CAANZ and CPA Australia membership, a big step toward becoming a professionally qualified accountant.

At AIS, we believe in helping you push your limits; therefore it is possible to achieve a double specialisation if the requirements of both specialisations are met.
