Selected major: Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Entrepreneurs are innovators. They see opportunities, anticipate needs, solve problems, make plans, take risks, and build teams.
Whether you’re hatching an idea, wanting to know how to launch your own venture, or looking to create competitive advantage within an existing organisation, this major provides the tools and knowledge.
With plenty of hands-on learning, you’ll develop the type of fresh thinking required to build, launch and scale a start-up business or social venture.
Discover how to differentiate an idea from a real opportunity, use innovation theory to maximise that opportunity, and learn how to create desirable, viable business models.
Develop your strategic thinking and planning skills, explore business models, learn to interpret sales and marketing opportunities, build a team and source capital funding.
The Bachelor of Business (Professional) includes a 12-month paid work placement.
From the outset, this degree will challenge you to combine business innovation with making a positive social impact.
Select a major area of specialisation and combine it with core studies in business, management and operations to become an entrepreneurial thinker and business innovator.
This premium degree is designed so you’ll be clear on how you and your skills can contribute as an individual and as part of a team in government, for-profit and for-purpose businesses.
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 this degree’s Industry Consulting Project (BUS30032), one of our industry partners will put forward a real problem. Finding solutions will require you to put what you’ve learned into practice. You’ll team up with other students to analyse the issue and propose solutions back to your client.
Sustainable Business Practice (BUS30031) teaches you to tackle problems and opportunities with holistic thinking. In this unit, you’ll work as part of a multidisciplinary team to find innovative, creative, and practical business solutions, that also consider ethical business practices and sustainability goals.
Swinburne’s Logistics and Supply Chain Management major is endorsed by The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA).

Women in Finance and Economics Scholarship Program
The purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage and assist women to enter, re-enter and achieve leadership roles across the financial services industry.
The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) is the primary membership organisation for financial planning practitioners who want to master the practice of financial planning, and who are committed to shaping the future of the profession.
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.
