Course in detail
- A Management professional major consisting of 16 units (200 credit points); and
- Eight (8) additional units that can be undertaken either as a co-major (8 units), two minors (4 units each), or pathways credit; and
- The not-for-credit unit, HBG0004 Careers in the Curriculum
- A minimum of 100 credit points must be completed at Swinburne University of Technology. This regulation must be observed in program plans that include unit exemptions; studies completed through international exchange, cross-institutional study or study abroad.
- Students will not be allowed to study more than 26 units (325 credit points) as part of the Bachelor of Commerce.
- A unit can only be counted once as part of a major or minor. Where there is an overlap of units a substitute unit has been identified in the relevant cognate area.
- Students are not permitted to enrol in units where they have completed other units that are deemed to be equivalent. Equivalent units cannot both be used for credit.
In addition to the above, all Swinburne undergraduate students must complete a compulsory unit of study, HBG0004 Careers in the Curriculum. Careers in the Curriculum is an innovative unit designed to assist Swinburne students to enhance their employability and career prospects.
Students must have passed prerequisites/corequisites listed for each unit of study and must check that they have fulfilled these requirements before enrolling. Unit of study convenors must be consulted if students wish to enrol in a unit of study for which they do not have the stated requisites.
As part of the Swinburne Model for Professional Learning, we would expect that all incoming undergraduates from 2009 will undertake 25 credit points of professionally focused final year major projects within their programs of study. Entry with advanced standing may require alternate study sequences to be undertaken.
The Faculty of Business and Enterprise is offering optional six-week Winter and Summer terms allowing you to complete extra study between the standard semesters. These terms are not mandatory. However, if you wish to vary your study load you may want to consider this option. Follow this link for more information on units offered.

Honours students work independently but in close consultation with a supervisor on a substantial project of their choice. Students are required to collect and analyse data and produce a substantial written thesis (15,000 to 20,000 words) on their findings. The honours program is a recognised point of entry into postgraduate research studies. For further information contact the Faculty of Business and Enterprise.
