This course enables students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes to implement entrepreneurial approaches to establish mission-driven ventures and use the techniques that start-up companies and other entrepreneurs use to develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural or environmental issues. This concept may be applied to a variety of organisations with different sizes, aims and beliefs. The course will examine the emergence of social entrepreneurs developing practical solutions to sustainability challenges and explore the intersection of the non-profit, government and business sectors in delivering social and environmental value. Students will examine the opportunities for entrepreneurial approaches to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and work collaboratively to develop a business plan for the establishment of a social enterprise that delivers social and/or environmental value.
* 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
