Course overview

This major is designed for enterprising individuals who want to start their own business or work as corporate entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs can be found in many types of workplace. What they all have in common is ambition, hard work, an ability to think outside the square, and the love of a personal challenge.

This major provides a sound understanding of how to start up your own business. You will study the foundations of business along with units that enhance your knowledge, skills and expertise in developing, managing and growing an entrepreneurial venture: either your own business or someone else’s business.

You will also gain skills in management, problem solving, planning, organisation and managing change. The practical approach of this major gives you the chance to interact with real entrepreneurs and receive industry experience.

Entrepreneurship is offered as part of the Bachelor of Commerce. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.

You can study this as part of a double major:

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
