Bachelor of Business 
Credit for ARC Diploma Graduates

The Australian Retail College [ARC] and the university of Southern Queensland has developed an articulation agreement allowing ARC Diploma graduates credit towards one third of Bachelor of Business program, resulting in a significant reduction in time and cost.
 

This arrangement provides direct entry into university education, and a unique opportunity for experienced retailers to progress their careers and gain a competitive edge.

The USQ of Bachelor of Business is a 24 course program compromised of 8 core courses and 16 electives. The articulation agreement provides students with credit in 8 elective units of the USQ program in recognition of their ARC Diploma (Management & Retail Management). For employers wishing to provide this pathway to their staff we can also offer a enrollment process rather than the usual pathway through QTAC.

USQ have a great reputation for distance learning and their program includes options for work-based projects. This is particularly relevant for our busy graduates who are based all around Australia and required a flexible, self paced program to fit it with their busy work schedules and for their employers who are seeking work relevant outcomes.
