Minor in Business Law

Candidates may include a minor in their BBus degree. This option became available from 2011.

In addition to the majors listed below a minor in Business Law is available.

The law underpins business. Accordingly a knowledge and understanding of business law is highly relevant for business leaders. The graduate with the business law minor will be equipped to identify those situations where it is necessary to seek qualified legal assistance, and recognise when a proposed course of action or inaction could give rise to legal liabilities and to alert decision makers accordingly.
