What will I learn?

Prepare yourself for success in the legal profession or as a business leader with a comprehensive background in legal principles and practice with this dual program.

The Bachelor of Business Management / Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is for anyone interested in developing the knowledge and self-confidence to effectively manage a wide range of business environments.

Under the business program, you'll complete a range of courses that cover concepts relevant across the business world. You'll study topics including accounting, economics, marketing, business information systems, organisational behaviour, management and more.

During your studies, you'll hear from guest lecturers from industry, examine real-life case studies and undertake projects, placements and internships with leading businesses.

Through your law studies, you'll develop a sophisticated understanding of the law that will see you develop practical legal skills and stimulate thoughtful debate with a focus on ethical and social responsibility.

UQ Law is proud to be the oldest law school in Queensland and one of Australia’s leading law schools, with strong working relationships with the community and the legal fraternity. Through these relationships, our students influence the law and its institutions for the benefit of society.

You'll graduate with a combination of core and specialist knowledge and develop the skills to lead people and projects, adapt to ever-changing commercial environments and be in high demand with employers.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

This major will show you how to take a new idea to market by building a new business from the ground up.

You'll first be introduced to basic principles of innovation and entrepreneurship, including the entrepreneurial mindset and process. Then you'll apply this knowledge in practical courses on digital innovation, social entrepreneurship and growth strategies, as well as technology and innovation management.

Through leadership development you will become a resourceful, creative and resilient innovation leader who delivers sustainable commercial and social value. Further extending your skill set, you’ll engage directly in a short placement or consulting project in a startup or commercial partner project.

You’ll also have the option to develop and grow your own business in an incubator or accelerator within the UQ entrepreneurship ecosystem or beyond. These deep immersion experiences will move you closer to commercially viable business solutions while establishing valuable networks with potential partners, investors, entrepreneurs and mentors.
