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.

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.
