Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship
Swinburne has been producing industry-leading entrepreneurs since 1975. Our extensive experience and expertise in this area culminated in the creation of the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship in 2001 – Australia's first dedicated entrepreneurship school.
The AGSE conducts leading research and educational programs in all areas of entrepreneurship. Our graduates drive social change, deliver industry leading research and innovation and run multinational companies.
AGSE programs are co-created with senior industry leaders, while regular curriculum reviews ensure that content is current.

Connected to industry
Through strategic partnerships with industry and course content that aligns with contemporary industry needs, our degrees are designed to develop entrepreneurial leaders and innovative thinkers who are equipped to succeed.
A personalised experience
Students have exclusive access to MOOC-style learning to provide invaluable insight prior to arriving in the classroom. Combined with one-on-one career planning meetings with our academic staff, they allow us to tailor each student’s experience to their goals.
Our ‘pracademics’ are ideally prepared to lead students as they navigate projects that have tangible benefits for their current role or project. They bring up-to-date industry-relevant content directly to our students.
Our postgraduate degrees combine practical theory with experiential learning, merge traditional skills with innovative thinking, and take a design-led approach to solving business problems and challenges.
Entrepreneurship is a mind-set that can benefit organisations of any size. It’s about questioning the status-quo, identifying opportunities, making decisions and implementing ideas swiftly and pragmatically. Concisely, it’s about having impact.

Seven years of competitive skydiving taught Nicole to be fearless. That served her well when she started Universal Village, a fair trade grocery enterprise. The AGSE then taught her to zoom out from the day‑to‑day detail and to think about her business strategically. Today, her brand, Qi Tea, turns over $1.5 million a year.
