"This integrated Business Management / Business Studies program is the first to be offered through the Riverina Institute’s University Studies Centre," explained Riverina Institute Director Rosemary Campbell. "This course offers students the opportunity to complete a TAFE NSW Advanced Diploma of Business Management and a Charles Sturt University Bachelor of Business Studies degree."
The program will provide people in Griffith with a jointly delivered integrated program focussing on broad based business skills development in the areas of Human Resources, Marketing, Management and Industrial Relations.
"This high quality program has many unique features," said Charles Sturt University Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor David Battersby. "The program offers students credit for previous work or study and graduates gain nationally recognised qualifications."
The Business Management / Business Studies program is offered full time with student / teacher face to face contact in the first year, with gradual introduction to innovative modes of learning in the second and third years.
"The benefits to students are enormous," said Chairman Western Riverina Higher Education Community Working Party Jim Brayne. "Students will develop practical business skills via a business internship. They are provided with Individual support and counselling and the course is HECS funded for a guaranteed three years."
The program launch will take place on Thursday 4th September from 11.30 am at the Riverina Wine and Food Technology Centre in Griffith.
