Graduate Certificate in Innovation and Enterprise
Level: Postgraduate coursework
Entrepreneurs and innovators identify and enhance new products, business processes and markets. They are the engine room of our economy and initiators of change.
This course will equip you with the ability and know-how to grow a successful local or international business. It caters to a wide variety of individuals, including entrepreneurs, researchers, creative artists and managers in both the commercial and not-for-profit sectors. The program will appeal to those interested in creating a new enterprise, as well as those seeking to grow or turn around a mature business.
Key units of study use problem‑based learning to embed you in entrepreneurial ventures and ensure that your learning is engaged and practical. This learning is supported through interactive workshops, group and individual projects, as well as seminars. You’ll gain insight and expertise in areas including commercialisation, start‑ups, entrepreneurial leadership, internationalisation, as well as teamwork and pitching skills.
The course draws on strategy and entrepreneurship, focusing on understanding markets, opportunities and firm performance. You will engage with businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the region, and draw upon the experience of expert researchers and practitioners involved with our Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research Group.
You will also be encouraged to take advantage of the substantial entrepreneurial initiatives associated with the program, including the Sydney Genesis business planning competition and Remote and Rural Enterprise.
