About this Unit
Entrepreneurial & innovative skills are more important than ever for today’s graduates where applying creativity to drive commercial outcomes is commonplace both for those working inside organisations and those developing their own business. This unit, based on the fundamental principle of ‘doing’, proposes to deliver principles and content through a highly applied approach. This is a unit that teaches entrepreneurship in a fundamentally different way to the traditional course structures. The unit is delivered through Western Sydney University’s highly successful “Launch Pad Innovation Centre” which provides both Tech Start-up and SME business support. This unit maximises the opportunity for real-world application by delivering through a case study driven approach and utilising a mix of presenters including: academia, business mentors, industry specialists from Launch Pad partners such as KPMG, NAB and government industry representatives, and actual start-up and SME business owners as guest lecturers.
