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.

I was intrigued by the Aviation Management course at Swinburne. The lecturers have real-world experience and Swinburne’s a great place to learn [with] lots of support for international students. My scholarship includes a trip to Lima for the IAWA conference. As the only student representing Australia, I’m excited to meet other international students.
