Want to start a business? Here’s the degree for you

20/10/2020 |

Are you a young person looking to gain the business skills to become a successful entrepreneur or startup founder? If so, then you are most likely part of what’s been dubbed ‘Generation Z’, or’ Gen Zers’ for short. Born between 1996 and 2010, you make up 20% of Australia’s population and are our most entrepreneurial and ambitious generation yet.

Studies have shown that you Gen Zers believe the key to success is to run your own business. This isn’t surprising considering you are ‘the most digitally supplied, globally connected and formerly educated generation in history’, according to Australian social research firm Mccrindle.

And unlike former generations (X and Y), one in two Gen Zers complete university degrees, which is why we here at UWA have created a business degree specifically targeted to those wanting to start their own enterprises in the future.




Bachelor of Business: the key to your success

Our Bachelor of Business is designed give you the state-of-the-art business knowledge you’ll need to kick-start your career in today’s world. You’ll learn from global experts and develop personal and project-based skills required in the modern workplace.

And industry experience is part of our three core Business majors - Business Management, Enterprise and Innovation, and Global Business - giving you the essential work experience and all-round education you need to start your career.

Our three majors have got you covered, as Dr Andrew Williams, Director of Education at the UWA Business School, explains:

“The majors on offer as part of the Bachelor of Business are designed to provide our future modern business leaders with the relevant, practical and transferable skills across a range of areas, including management, marketing, applied business economics, innovation and entrepreneurship.

You’ll learn how to think creatively and innovatively. We teach you how to develop your own business ideas, and how to maintain a competitive advantage in local and global markets.”

Added to this, you can take a second major from any other degree. For example, you may want to consider a second major from the Bachelor of Commerce, like Marketing or Finance, to develop specialist skills and knowledge.

“The career opportunities a Bachelor of Business provides are unlimited … it is an exciting time for those starting out in the modern world of business with fresh ideas for new ventures and big business ideas”, Dr Williams says.
