The world of business is rapidly changing — and at La Trobe, we’re at the forefront of digital disruption, big data and start-up culture. Business graduates today need the skills to create, adapt and innovate in their careers. That starts right here at La Trobe Business School with future-focused degrees, research and industry partnerships.

At La Trobe Business School, we’re home to exciting degrees and interdisciplinary research. But we don’t do it alone. We partner with industry so our students get the latest insights and work ready skills, and so our research makes an impact.


Many of our subjects and degrees are co-designed with industry partners, which enables our students to deliver what employers need. We combine technical, analytical and business skills with the human side. That means our graduates are great critical thinkers, communicators, leaders, collaborators, adapters and innovators. They’re also career-ready thanks to work placements built into our degrees and on the side.


We are accredited by AACSB International – the highest standard for business schools worldwide – and our MBA is EFMD Accredited.

Our business and commerce courses give students an edge — whether they’re studying one of our degrees or taking an elective. Our students get a complete toolkit to help them lead digital change and become irreplaceable in tomorrow’s business environment. They unlock technology’s potential in business, from our Bachelor of Business Analytics and Bachelor of Digital Business to our Master of Business Analytics or Master of Digital Marketing Communications. Student can also shape our MBA or PhD to what the future holds for them. Plus, with initiatives like the La Trobe Accelerator Program, students can launch their start-up while they study — with the support to thrive as an entrepreneur.

Our courses are taught by experts who’ve worked for major corporations, industry bodies, government, schools and more. They’ve been consultants, analysts, directors, general managers and entrepreneurs — and some still are. Our Professors of Practice are at the height of their careers and bring the most up-to-date insights from industry. Other teachers are world-renowned in research instead, leading the way when it comes to data analytics and more.


At our Melbourne Campus, our specialist teaching and research spaces include the Centre for Sport and Social Impact and the Centre for Data Analytics and Cognition. We also teach at modern city campuses in the heart of both Melbourne and Sydney’s business districts, and at regional campuses across Victoria.


Plus, we take our social responsibility very seriously, in the way we research and what we teach. In fact, we’re champions of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
