Innovation and Entrepreneurship is focused on developing knowledge, skills and understanding of how an innovative idea, product or process can be used to form a new and successful business, or to help an existing firm to grow and expand.
What you will learn
You will develop essential understanding and knowledge of how to test whether an innovative idea, product or processes will be demanded by customers, how to finance start-up ventures and innovation projects, and how to sell and market new products and services into national and international market places.
Areas of study
You will focus on how innovative new products and services are developed and how entrepreneurs think and make decisions. You will also learn how entrepreneurial firms compete for customers in national and international markets, how they form strategies, and how they organise their activities and operations to grow into successful and profitable businesses.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a strong complementary major for students completing a Bachelor of Commerce. A number of the courses are also available to students in other degree programmes and are especially relevant to those studying sciences and technology related disciplines.
A wide and varied range of roles and careers is open to you when you study Innovation and Entrepreneurship at either the undergraduate or postgraduate level including working in a start-up or innovative business, business development, management consulting, or as an entrepreneurial manager.
