Deakin Business School's mission is to prepare graduates for the careers of the future by facilitating borderless, personalised education that harnesses emerging technologies, and by conducting research that informs our practice and impacts the communities we serve. Our courses are designed with our students in mind and feature work-integrated learning concepts, internationally accredited program options, networking opportunities and mentor programs.
Deakin Business School encompasses six academic departments focusing on a comprehensive range of business disciplines. Within accounting, economics, finance, information systems and business analytics, management and marketing, you will find a myriad of specialisations tailored to your specific career aspirations. Deakin Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). A hallmark of excellence, AACSB accreditation is awarded to business schools that meet strict standards of quality, academic and professional excellence, and is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognised form of professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn. Only five per cent of business programs worldwide are AACSB accredited and DBS is one of only three in Victoria, Australia.
Deakin Business School delivers courses in all areas of business education for undergraduate and postgraduate students. You can choose from a number of study areas, including accounting, economics, finance, information systems and business analytics, management and marketing.
Our host of undergraduate programs includes the Bachelor of Commerce, an internationally accredited degree that will qualify you to work in almost any industry and give you the relevant skills to apply to any business situation. Deakin is the only Australian university with an EPAS-accredited Bachelor of Commerce.
Upon completion of your undergraduate degree, Deakin offers a diverse range of postgraduate courses, including an award-winning MBA.
As a postgraduate student, you can choose from programs such as Deakin's Master of Professional Accounting, a pathway to professional accounting for graduates from other disciplines, or our Master of Business (Sports Management) - ranked seventh in the world for business-based sport management programs by SportBusiness International (SBI)*. Our Master of Commerce gives professionals from non-business backgrounds the opportunity to move into a business career, while the Master of Business Analytics offers a broad curriculum that builds knowledge across the three key areas of business analytics: data capture, analytics and decision-making.
Masters degrees are also available in a wide range of disciplines, including information systems, international business, international finance and marketing. A doctoral program in business administration and PhD degrees by research are also offered.
