Southern Cross Business School
At the Southern Cross Business School we offer a comprehensive suite of business, management and information technology degrees that are informed by research, reviewed by industry leaders and taught by experts. Our degrees are designed to open doors anywhere in the world.
The School is committed to excellence in teaching and offers opportunities for lifelong learning through its undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, which are all tailored to meet industry demands. Our courses combine academic rigour with contemporary industry practice, giving our students the skills to succeed in complex business environments.
Students can study with us at the University's Gold Coast, Lismore and Coffs Harbour campuses; and from 2014, international students can study at the new SCU Sydney campus. We also offer courses in Asia and the Pacific with one of our education collaborations.
We have flexible study options, including distance education (sometimes called online or external education) so that people can study business or IT in the freedom of their home, workplace, or wherever else they choose. With three teaching sessions each year, students also have the option to fast track their degree.
