Business Programs Unit
The Business Programs Unit (BPU) develops and delivers curriculum, as well as student, academic, and administrative support initiatives for undergraduate and postgraduate Commerce programs offered by The University of Sydney Business School.

- Development and delivery of the BUSS-coded Core Units of Study for both undergraduate and postgraduate Commerce programs.
- Development and delivery of compulsory program-wide capstone units in the undergraduate and postgraduate Commerce programs and carriage of program-level assurance of learning in these units.
- Coordination of the Units of Study for the Business School's Industry Placement Program (IPP).
