ENTREP 7048 - Advanced Venture Planning and Communications

North Terrace Campus - Trimester 3 - 2017

This course focuses on developing two core skills essential for entrepreneurship. The first is building a comprehensive new venture plan supported by an integrated pro-forma Cash Flow Statement, Income Statement and Balance Sheet. This is an essential skill necessary for preparing proposals for investors and other potential stakeholders. The second skill is to be able to present and communicate professional business plans in both written and verbal communication. Entrepreneurs are invariably under-resourced to undertake the new ventures they seek to create and hence communicating convincingly and confidently with investors, lead customers, partners and other key resource holders is often key to an entrepreneur's success. At the end of this course, a candidate will be able to: - Prepare an integrated financial forecasting model; - Incorporate a sensivity analysis within a proforma financial model identifying critical success factors for planning; - Design and prepare a business planning document including integrated financials; and - Prepare and pitch business proposals.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
