A business and law double degree offers a powerful combination of business and law skills that provides a broad base of commercial knowledge and will enhance your career in the law or business environments. Your business knowledge and skills will provide a valuable commercial perspective ideal for specialist areas such as corporate law, company takeovers, corporate governance, taxation law and intellectual property law. Business majors include accounting, advertising, economics, finance, financial planning, management, marketing, human resource management, international business and public relations, giving a broad range of specialty areas to focus your career on.

QUT’s contemporary law degree prepares you to think ahead and allows you to take advantage of employment opportunities in growth areas or newly emerging sectors, such as intellectual property and technology.
