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 Laws/Bachelor of Business offers you a course focused on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law.
As the only double degree in Victoria with this specialisation, you'll learn about trademarks, patents and designs, copyright, the prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct and competition law.
You'll learn to think like an entrepreneur and develop the skills and knowledge essential to business management and operations.
The combination of degrees equips you with the skills to work in commercial and general legal practice, within management, and as entrepreneurs.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises. And in the Industry Consulting Project (BUS30009), you’ll team up with other students to work on a real project briefed to you by an industry partner.

The practice of law
Visiting Indonesia and helping shape the university’s strategy for engaging in the region was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Jack. It gave the Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business student valuable practical experience and challenged him to think outside the box.
I chose Swinburne because I wanted to be part of a tight-knit community. It was important to me to know that I would have the ability to form close relationships with other students and get direct support from academics – something that I felt would be difficult in a bigger university.
