Entrepreneurship Experience – MWL317 and MWL717

An opportunity to undertake an authentic learning experience with an innovative and entrepreneurial focus.

Entrepreneurship Experience – MWL317 and MWL717

What is Entrepreneurship Experience?

The Entrepreneurship Experience unit applies the principles of experiential learning in which students undertake an active learning experience with an entrepreneurial focus.

Students develop their creative thinking, analytical and self-management skills. In programs offered within this unit, students undertake a series of exercises in class, designed to develop an entrepreneurial mindset, skillset and innovation capabilities.

These skills are applied in group projects developing a new business idea. Each program culminates in persuasive presentations of validated business models with the goal of gaining support and/or funding for a new business idea.

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. The program was a huge value add to my masters degree as well as my perspective on establishing and running a business.
