This unit of study will be intensively taught off campus, enabling you to engage deeply with entrepreneurial contexts and opportunities. The unit will be offered in a variety of contexts but could include businesses in cities, towns or remote locations in Australia and Asia. You will work intensively with a business or community to resolve a particular problem, and apply entrepreneurial insights and actions to grow an existing or new enterprise. These problems could be addressed through commercial or social entrepreneurship, and will typically require that you engage with other fields such as architecture or engineering. The focus of the unit is learning with action, and acting with learning - you will cover topics that will ensure you appropriately understand the situation, as well as organisational resources, capabilities and vision. With this understanding you will be challenged to develop an entrepreneurial strategy and funding proposal that can be implemented by the enterprise.
classes will include 39 hours contact with heavy emphasis on a mix of seminars, workshops and other sessions. With intensive block mode, students will typically be in-country for a period of 2 weeks, with seminars prior and after departure
