The Bachelor of Business (Professional) is designed to equip you with core skills and knowledge in business, management and operations to prepare you for roles in modern organisations.
Select a major area of specialisation and combine it with your other studies to become an entrepreneurial thinker, innovator and learn to find opportunity where others cannot.
All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. This Professional Degree includes a mandatory 12-month paid work placement. You'll benefit from Swinburne’s unique industry partnerships, gain invaluable full-time work experience and earn credit towards your degree.
In your final year, in the Industry Consulting Project (BSB30024), you’ll team up with other students to work on a real project briefed to you by an industry partner.

Make sure you check out the available scholarships. They became a really good goal for me during Year 12 and are achievable if you put in the hard work. I also recommend coming to Open Day – you can ask questions (even silly ones!) and get answers from current students.
