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.

Examples: Spark Entrepreneurship Experience, International Tours (Hacker Exchange)
