The Information Technology Management major is accredited by the Australian Computer Society and through the Seoul Accord, is recognised overseas.
The Human Resource Management major within the Bachelor of Business is accredited by the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) and meets the educational requirements for professional membership of AHRI.
