Entrepreneurship Experience

What is Entrepreneurship Experience?

Entrepreneurship Experience allows students the opportunity to undertake an authentic learning experience with an innovative and entrepreneurial focus. The experience undertaken will allow students to develop their critical thinking, communication and self-management skills as they gain exposure to real world experiences as an entrepreneur and innovator. Students undertaking programs with the likes of Deakin SPARK will have the ability to create a new enterprise, while international study tours provide students insights into entrepreneurial organisations.



“I really loved the quality of content during each of our workshops, especially considering it had to cover various aspects in less than 3 hours. The content delivery was amazing in a very informal setting, which created the perfect atmosphere to open up and ask questions right out of your head without second thoughts.... The program was a huge value add to my master's degree as well as my perspective on establishing and running a business.” - Vinayak Madhu Kumar, SPARK Deakin Startup Ideation
