Follow in the footsteps of other Murdoch free thinkers: the CEO of a major international airline, a deputy prime minister, a federal minister for justice, a crime specialist that's re-thinking the jail system, or a lawyer defending the rights of children, protestors and inmates.

Where could a business or law degree take you?

Learn how to turn ideas into actions that make the world a better place.

The career options in business, governance, law or criminology are almost endless: you could defend social justice, champion sustainability agendas in the business world or find new ways to fight crime.

Or perhaps you’ll join the entrepreneurial movement, be at the table when political decision are made or fight for human rights.

By 2022, there will be:


129,800 new jobs for legal, social and welfare professionals.


89,000 new management jobs.


58,800 new jobs for business, human resources and marketing professionals.


Why study business and law at Murdoch?

We like to do things differently. Instead of just sitting in a classroom, you’ll gain practical, hands on experience to prepare you for your future career.

On any day you could be taking part in our well-established mooting program or experiencing the world’s business, crime and legal sectors first hand through a business internship or with our on-campus legal centre. If you’re thinking about a global career, you could have the opportunity to participate in programs in Germany, Shanghai, Singapore or Geneva.

If you’re trying to choose between courses, why not consider a combined degree or double major? You can get the best of both worlds.
