This course describes the skills, knowledge and values required to develop an understanding of the role and function of the entrepreneur in a range of organisations. Students will use the learning materials to develop an understanding of the principles and foundations of entrepreneurship, the nature and role of entrepreneurial function in a business/organisational context and to learn strategies and tactics that can be used to improve the probability of new venture success. Students will learn the industrial, legal, financial and technical formalities associated with the commencement of new ventures, and develop skills to understand the application of entrepreneurship to a designated industry sector. Students will also learn to apply the principles of entrepreneurship to judge the feasibility of a recognised opportunity, and choose appropriate methodologies to formulate and present a business plan for a new venture.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
