This version of the course is available to new and continuing students.

The Bachelor of Entrepreneurship is not a stand-alone degree, but is designed to be undertaken in combination with any Western Sydney bachelor degree. The degree is an innovative approach to training the next generation of high impact entrepreneurs by providing knowledge and developing practical skills. The course aims to guide students through all phases of their entrepreneurship journey: from forming a team to helping with pitching their ideas to potential investors and developing strategies for obtaining funding.

Students will not be limited to learning a particular profession, but will also engage in the process of building a start-up company. The key emphasis of this course is on developing the mindset, risk tolerance, creativity, passion, big thinking, team formation and leadership capabilities – key characteristics of high impact entrepreneurs. Practical experience is incorporated into every semester of study, such as incubators, technology parks, and innovation centres and enabling a student through all the stages from creative ideas through the sustainable development of the idea into a lean start-up. Upon completion graduates will demonstrate an entrepreneurial mind set and will know how to apply this mindset to address a diverse range of problems through game and simulation-based solutions.

Students will have the ability to complete the Bachelor of Entrepreneurship as either intertwined with the student’s primary degree and studied concurrently, or as a final year block of units at the end of their primary degree.
