Don’t just rewrite the rules, throw the rulebook away. If you like to think big and immerse in possibility, you’ll find tremendous value in the entrepreneurship minor sequence with its focus on new ventures, innovation and disruption – not just in technology and start-ups, but also family businesses, existing small businesses and social enterprises. Study the entrepreneurship minor sequence and you’ll get a firm foothold on how entrepreneurship is shaking up traditional industries like education, transport, food production and sustainable construction.

“I was able to transfer everything I learnt in my entrepreneurship classes to the real world. During my studies, I even had an opportunity to pitch my start-up in China. When I was there, I discovered I only had 20 seconds to talk about my company on stage in front of hundreds of people. Luckily, I’d already learnt how to do this in my entrepreneurship subjects.”

Luke, Bachelor of Commerce, entrepreneurship
