A five star rating for student satisfaction.
The UNE Business School is nationally and internationally renowned for its high teaching standards and flexible learning environments. Our on-campus courses offer small class sizes with an excellent student to staff ratio. This is just one good reason why the Good Universities Guide has consistently awarded UNE a Five-Star rating for student satisfaction.
We have a strong tradition of providing distance education.
Since UNE's inception as a college of the University of Sydney in 1938—and our subsequent independence in 1954—UNE has been a pioneer and leader in the provision of high quality distance education. Our staff are driven by research and informed by practice, resulting in courses that are constantly changing to meet the needs of the real world and maintaining their relevancy in a wide variety of organisations to enhance your employment and promotion prospects.
Regardless of your entry level to our wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses we hope that you will continue to return to us for further studies throughout your professional and lifelong learning.
Within the UNE Business School we are committed to ensuring your learning activities are engaging and effective. Our Undergraduate Learning Guide is available in all Moodle sites and is a useful resource to aid in your studies.
As all Business study areas involve varying levels of data use, some core units that you study will develop your abilities to operate successfully in the business world. To achieve this, some basic maths is used (this does not require Years 11 or 12 standards). Students will need some knowledge of the following areas: percentages, fractions, order of operations, basic algebra and logarithms.
There are many open access internet resources available for students to refresh their knowledge in these areas, such as:
- Maths is Fun http://www.mathsisfun.com/
- The Khan Academy https://www.khanacademy.org/math
- Interactive Maths http://www.intmath.com/.
UNE's Academic Skills Office (ASO) also holds short university preparation online courses in Maths called 'tUNEupMaths' from home. You will need to book/register for this short course. More details here: http://www.une.edu.au/current-students/resources/academic-skills/tuneup
Also, students will need to use an electronic calculator from the UNE approved list. http://www.une.edu.au/current-students/my-course/examinations/what-calculators-are-permitted-in-exams
