Be the change-maker

With change gathering pace worldwide, advanced entrepreneurial skills are priceless—the X-factor that turns looming threat into emerging opportunity. Entrepreneurs aren’t just ahead of the curve, they start it.

What will you do?

Our 12-month Graduate Diploma of Entrepreneurship and Innovation is a keenly focused skills fast-track. You’ll specialise in two of:

  • Entrepreneurial Thinking
  • Managing New Ventures
  • International Entrepreneurship
  • New Venture Start-up.

Through a work-friendly blend of online learning, intensive courses and face-to-face workshops, you’ll:

  • develop a globally informed entrepreneurial mindset
  • learn to creatively solve complex business problems with design thinking
  • deeply understand every aspect of creating a new enterprise
  • be guided by expert mentors—most with overseas experience
  • take a new venture from concept to launch in the University’s eChallenge.

You could also elect to undertake a project abroad working alongside start-ups and mentors in the University’s France or Singapore ThincLab studios. And choose from 13 other electives according to your career objectives.

Where could it take you?

Everything’s possible. You’ll graduate with a clear grasp of your entrepreneurial ‘profile’ and how you’re most likely to thrive. You could take the lead or play a key role. Innovate for others or be your own CEO. And you’ll be equipped to pitch your ideas to any audience. You could even go on to a master degree.
