Join the business of innovation

With Swinburne’s entrepreneurship and innovation programs, you’ll learn how to become an entrepreneur or intrapreneur who can transform ideas into sustainable, viable realities. Choose from master, double master, graduate certificate and micro-unit options.

First and still leading

This is Australia’s first entrepreneurship program and its immersive, industry-linked experiential focus means it’s still a leader in entrepreneurship.

Industry connections are our strength

The program suite is co-created with the strategic insight and advisory firm, Pitcher Partners. With their expertise and ours, we take entrepreneurial theories, design thinking, models and methods and combine them with practical experiences, personal insights from our industry partners, real-world examples of entrepreneurship, applied projects, and site visits.

Learn how to innovate

When you graduate, you’ll know each stage of the business cycle in-depth. You’ll know how intrapreneurs innovate within existing organisations and how entrepreneurs disrupt with new initiatives. You’ll understand the capacity and potential uses of the information systems, business analytics and data visualisation vital to the future of business.

Turn an idea into a viable product

During our Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, you’ll have the opportunity to take your idea through to commercialisation. Our experts can help you develop a business case, which you may pitch for venture funding from Swinburne’s Innovation Precinct.  

Courses available

This four-unit certificate provides a foundation in entrepreneurship and innovation, which can springboard you into the full Swinburne entrepreneurship master program or be a standalone degree that updates your existing skills and refresh your career.
