About entrepreneur-ship

Don’t just rewrite the rules, throw the rulebook away. If you like to think big and dwell in possibility, you’ll find tremendous value in entrepreneurship’s focus on new ventures, innovation and disruption – not just in technology and startups, but also family businesses, existing small businesses and social enterprises. Study entrepreneurship and you’ll get a firm foothold on how entrepreneurship is shaking up traditional industries like education, transport, food production and sustainable construction. You’ll also enhance many of your innate abilities, including your creativity, focus, resourcefulness, risk evaluation, determination, ability to communicate and a willingness to work hard.

Innovation into action

Study entrepreneurship as your undergraduate minor and you’ll build the essential skills needed to put your innovative ideas into action – then sell them in the market independently. You’ll be provided insights about cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset, making a social impact through commercialising social innovations in the community, managerial skills needed in developing and selling the first product, and new venture planning.

Experienced educators

More than ever, instructors from business and enterprise backgrounds are needed to help students bring theories and concepts to life. That’s why most of our academics who are involved in delivering our entrepreneurship units possess relevant and practical experience – either as entrepreneurs themselves or seasoned business managers.

Workshops that work

Our entrepreneurship classes are delivered as discussion-driven workshops. There you’ll do individual and group exercises that help simulate the different situations where entrepreneurial decision-making is needed. As you progress through your studies, your final assessments will be project-based and require you to resolve real-world problems.

Real-world learning

Receive relevant lessons from the real world. We invite established entrepreneurs to our workshops as guest lecturers, providing valuable opportunities for you to both learn from practitioners’ experiences and connect their knowledge and insights with other case studies.

Student profile luke-di-stefano

Luke Di Stefano

Bachelor of Commerce, Sydney

"I've already been able to transfer everything I've learnt in my entrepreneurship classes to the real world. Recently, I had an opportunity to pitch my startup 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. In fact, every day in China I was able to link my experiences back to something I'd studied in those classes."
