Swinburne received a 5-star rating by the Good Universities Guide 2019, Australia’s only comprehensive degree and university ranking guide. In 2019, Swinburne ranked third out of 41 Australian universities for overall quality of educational experience in teacher education.

Reflecting our core values of innovative education and social inclusion, undergraduate business students complete a core unit that exposes them to business creation for social impact. Innovative study programs such as the Business Innovations in Europe study tour, Social Innovation Internship in Sarawak and the award-winning ICT for Social Impact India study tour are transformative experiences that shape and promote shared values and facilitate lifelong learning.

Our approach to entrepreneurship includes Australia’s first dedicated postgraduate entrepreneurship school – the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship. These programs are designed and delivered with industry to ensure students are solving real-world problems. Students engage with practical theory with experiential learning, merge traditional skills with innovative thinking, and take a design-led approach to solving business problems and challenges.
