Why we’re different
We believe if you are keeping up with change, you’re already too late.
Entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs find openings where others only see obstructions. Innovators see opportunity where others see only chaos. These instincts can be taught. We teach them. And that’s what makes us different.
Learn from those who’ve made it
When you join the AGSE, you’ll become part of Swinburne’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. That means regular cross-disciplinary events and networking opportunities where you can build your professional black book and learn from those who’ve made it.
You’ll also have guest lectures delivered by industry leaders, such as the founding partner of Flight Centre and philanthropic sponsor of STREAT social enterprise, Geoff Harris, the founder of pongolabs and full-stack software developer, Shorouv Bhattacharya, and the founder of MiVote and serial innovator, Adam Jacoby.
And, to top it off, in your course, you’ll receive real briefs from our industry partners. You could be helping global agency, Isobar’s finance clients capitalise on the emergence of cryptocurrencies or solving real-world challenges posed by massive infrastructure projects, such as the West Gate Tunnel Project being carried out by CPBJH JV.
You’ll be learning from pracademics and academics
Whether professionals with academic experience, or academics with a wealth of professional experience, your lecturers will get granular with real business problems and practical methods to discover solutions.
Among the top 5% of business schools
We are part of the Swinburne Business School, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Only the top 5% of the world’s higher education business schools have achieved this. It means that we’ve demonstrated excellence in the way we teach, conduct research and write our courses.
To prepare you for study once you are enrolled, we have developed four self-assessment modules you can complete online.
- Financial statement analysis
- Quantitative skills for decision-making
- Business management principles
- Study skills
These interactive short courses are designed to assess and improve your knowledge of these key areas. Completing them also gives our academic staff insight that enables them to guide you in selecting the best elective units for you. Delivered through online learning management system, Canvas, we strongly encourage all new students to complete these modules prior to their first class.
