Bachelor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Mid-Year Entry
The Bachelor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship is about learning how to create and advance entrepreneurial business and social ventures that will grow in an ever-changing landscape. Interested students can start their own ventures in the University’s ThincLab Incubator(s) while they study. Students will develop the ability to:
- think and act like successful entrepreneurs and investors
- identify, evaluate and develop opportunities
- develop and implement entrepreneurial strategies
- commercialise innovations, and
- develop and lead winning entrepreneurial teams.
This degree also suits those who want to be intrapreneurs (corporate entrepreneurs) who want to drive the development of their employer’s innovative products and services.
Students will benefit from hands-on help of experienced mentors and professionals who, together with their lecturers, support them in developing their ventures.
As part of the degree, students can develop a global perspective through our network of ThincLab Incubators located in Singapore and France. This offers a unique opportunity for students to co-locate in these Incubators for periods of time during their studies where they:
- can develop international perspectives and strategies and apply them to their ventures
- can tap into supported international learning in these locations, and
- are exposed to local cultures, networks, and opportunities in these locations.
