Study and Work
As a Business Cadet, you may choose from a broad range of degrees, including Economics, Commerce, Business, Actuarial Studies, Computer Science and Information Technology, Mathematics, Arts, Social Sciences and Advanced Studies.
While your choice of degree majors will usually be up to you, a Business Cadetship allows you to discover at work where your strengths lie and to tailor your degree as your professional interests develop.
To be considered for a Business Cadetship, you will need to expect an ATAR of at least 86.25 (or an IB Diploma score of at least 31).
A Business cadet combines paid work at either UBS, or Barrenjoey or Macquarie in Sydney with paid work in Sydney. It is very important that the integration of study and work allows you to perform well both at university and at work.
A cadetship at UBS, at Barrenjoey or at Macquarie is typically a four year program. At cadet selection, each company will discuss how university study may be combined with work.
A Business Cadetship in Melbourne combines paid work in Global Research at UBS Melbourne with university study in Melbourne. A cadetship will typically be a four year program.
