Selected major: Business Administration
Business administrators are expected to know how businesses function and how to ensure they run smoothly and efficiently.
In this major, you’ll gain an essential understanding of business operations including organisational behaviour and managing workplace relations. You’ll also learn practical skills in areas like data analytics, data collection, strategic planning and project management.
The aim of this major is not to make you an instant expert; it’s to give you the confidence to ask intelligent questions so you will be able to get the answers you need for successful administrative work in any industry or workplace.
From the outset, Swinburne’s Bachelor of Business challenges you to be innovative, to make a positive social impact and, to be clear on how you can contribute as an individual and as part of a team in government, for-profit and for-purpose businesses.
Select a major area of specialisation and combine it with your core business studies to become an entrepreneurial thinker and business innovator.

Scoring an internship and career with Richmond Football Club
When Grace took on an internship at Richmond Football Club while completing her Bachelor of Business she did more than gain crucial work experience, she kick-started her career.
While still studying I got into a vacation program at KPMG, in its risk consulting division. I had little idea of what I was getting into but had an incredible experience. I took a graduate offer and now work there in a Data Analytics role. There’s no way I could’ve predicted where I am now just a few short years ago.

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.
