This multidisciplinary course combines the development of enterprise skills, required for careers of the future, through a transdisciplinary core, with the development of both technical business skills and the analytical skills of psychological science. Your business skills will be developed through a commerce major in accounting, economics, finance, management or marketing. While your psychological science skills will be developed through a focus on all of the core content areas of psychology, from its biological foundations to its social influences on affect, behaviour and cognition. Through the core you will learn how to communicate and work effectively in multidisciplinary, multicultural teams to solve the type of complex social and commercial challenges faced by organisations and communities today. You will learn how to create sustainable value in corporations and diverse communities, and in so doing you will learn how to communicate your own value to future employers. On graduation you will be able to apply a knowledge of psychology to the analysis of behavior in commercial disciplines such as economics, finance, management and marketing and be able to make more informed decisions. The three Essentials - Global Citizenship, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Thinking - are specialist areas designed to give you an edge with employers. They will enable you to adapt your knowledge and skills to new contexts in a rapidly changing world. Subjects addressing the Essentials are part of all undergraduate La Trobe degrees and can be identified in the subject database by distinct icons. The list of approved subjects is also on the Essentials webpage.
