BA-BUS10 Degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

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.

Build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects

In this degree’s Industry Consulting Project (BUS30009), 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.

Advanced Business Practice (BUS30024) 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.
