Study entrepreneurship at Griffith

Look before you leap

Too many small businesses collapse too soon. Find out why and gain the entrepreneurial skills to bring your ideas to life. A Griffith Business School entrepreneurship and self-employment major is a toolbox for startups. Use it to develop a valuable skill set that includes small-business finance, marketing, human resource management and entrepreneurship.

Hands-on experience, global opportunities

Learn from the people who know best. Along with your classroom lecturers, you’ll learn from industry professionals and discover how business theory applies on the job. Take on a community internship, project-based work placement or Global Mobility internship and gain practical experience, professional skills and connections that will boost your career prospects.

Multiply your career options

Want a unique skill set that gives you an edge in the market? A double major will expand your career options exponentially. Choose a second major from the Bachelor of Business or combine entrepreneurship with a major from the Bachelor of Commerce. Go on to specialise in either field or combine the two and aim high in the working world.

Fast-track option

At Logan and online, you can complete your entrepreneurship degree in two years by studying on a three-trimester per year basis. Fast track options are also available at Nathan and the Gold Coast by studying over three trimesters.

5-Star Rated
