Description This unit is designed to assist students to develop specialised knowledge and communicative skills in the context of entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability. Students complete a research project that explores the phenomena of strategy, sustainability and/or entrepreneurship in a context of their choice or as proposed by an academic. This research addresses a specific entrepreneurial problem or opportunity confronting business. For example, these research projects could relate to action research in a remote or rural enterprise, students' own enterprise, or future career. The unit is offered to students undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Innovation and Enterprise, as well as those in the Master of Commerce who successfully apply for special permission.
