Navigating a future in which constant change and disruption is the new norm requires that we think creatively, innovate constantly and act entrepreneurially.
The Master of Innovation and Enterprise is designed to develop students’ capacity to successfully conceive, build and lead the innovation initiatives, ecosystems and new ventures which will; transform the organisations and industries of today; launch the new ventures, technologies and services of tomorrow and drive a new wave of socio-economic advancement, growth and stability for our shared future.
The Masters takes students beyond the search for new opportunities, to build the global mindset and capabilities required to adopt collaborative, open and emerging market innovation approaches, strategically manage innovation initiatives, develop commercially viable routes-to-market and business models and bring together the networks, support and financial and human resources to successfully launch and scale transformative projects and ventures.
Through a series of immersive learning workshops, in-class activities and “real-world” challenges, students will immerse themselves in advanced concepts and practice of global and disruptive innovation, entrepreneurship and corporate intrapreneurship, strategy and enterprise growth. In addition, students will also gain the interpersonal and communication skills necessary to engage with the business world, including leadership, resilience, collaboration, influencing and presentation skills.
The program provides students with multiple opportunities, both in-country and overseas, to apply their learning in the field and convert opportunities into tangible commercial and social outcomes, either in the form of a new venture launch, a corporate innovation sprint, intensive study tour(s) or industry placement(s). Students will be exposed to the global and local entrepreneurial ecosystem (incubators, accelerators, venture capitalists) and develop networks useful for their entrepreneurial ventures, whether within an existing business or in a new startup. Students will also have access to non-award-based workshops and events with experienced entrepreneurs, innovators and other relevant industry practitioners which provides further reality and rigour to supplement study.
The program caters to a wide variety of individuals, including entrepreneurs, corporate managers and leaders, both in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors, researchers, creative artists and government officers. It will particularly appeal to students seeking to grow or transform an existing business, build an organisation-wide culture of creativity and innovation, launch an innovative new venture or enhance their career prospects
