Every day we interact with the world of business, often without even realising it. It could be the business of getting to school or work, using technology, upgrading your mobile phone or just shopping for the week's groceries or dinner.

This What’s your Business? activity may be the first step your students take towards a future career in business. The activity is designed to broaden students' understanding of Business and the pathways and diverse opportunities that can open up to them from univerity studies in business. 

The activity will include interactive workshops, chosen from six broad areas of business -  Accounting, Economics, Finance, International Business, Management and Marketing, 

It's is a great way for your students to begin exploring the Business professions through a fun activity in a relaxed environment.

Get Busy with Business

Activity code: BUS-02
Year level: 9, 10
Target audience: School groups
Venue: School or on university campus
Show more...

In this activity your students will learn what is involved in Business, learn about the wide range of fields and skills that the term 'business' covers, have the opportunity to hear from university students currently engaged in business studies and ask questions.

First, we will introduce your students to the different areas business professionals work in and their varied roles, including options students may not have thought about. Students will then 'get busy' completing hands-on activities from multiple fields of business.

Activities and information will be grouped into six business themes (Accounting, Economics, Finance, International Business, Management and Marketing). A selection of activities will be delivered at each event, drawn from these themes, so that students can experience a range of professional skills, job roles and functions.

If you request  this activity  to be run on a university campus, students will undertake the same program and we are able to incorporate a university tour, allowing the students to get a real insight into university life.

Your students will leave this event with a greater understanding of what it's like studying for a business career at university, the variety of careers available, and an understanding of the breadth of business and its application across our society.

Y11, 12. Thinking about a career in Business? Not sure how to get started? Why not come along to this workshop which will help you make sense of what is required to get yourself into a university business course. 

Whether you have made up your mind on a specific business related career path, or if you are undecided and perhaps better suited to a general business course, this workshop will help you navigate the world of university including how to apply, what happens on campus and how it's different to high school. We will give you some tips on surviving the first few months so you can make the most out of your studies and kick start your career.

We will also let you in on some secrets along the way. For example, did you know you can join assisted study sessions, apply for a range of scholarships or get assigned a mentor to help you through the early days? As well as the range of support programs there is a huge number of sporting, social and special interest clubs and groups you can join.

This session will give you the tips and hints to help you get to uni, and then get the most out of uni!
