The Master of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship is a unique 12-month intensive MBA designed for entrepreneurs and innovators. The program provides students with the skills, knowledge and networks needed to take an idea, develop it into a product or service offering, create a commercial or social venture and take the venture to market. Students learn fundamental business skills in accounting, finance, marketing, sales and data analytics and develop knowledge in important areas of entrepreneurship and innovation management including learning how to identify and commercialise opportunities, how to apply start-up methods to develop products and services, how to seek support and funding for their ventures and how to scale entrepreneurial organisations. Students are embedded in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem (incubators, accelerators, venture capitalists) and exposed to global best practices while they develop networks useful for their own venture.
Students with commercial or social venture ideas who want to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge benefit from studying this program. The flexible modular structure of the program allows students to study the program in stages while developing and working on their entrepreneurial or innovation project. Students also have access to a project space, a mentor program and non-award based master classes and events with entrepreneurs and other relevant industry practitioners who provide 'reality and rigour' to supplement their classroom study.
The course is designed to provide students with entrepreneurial skills and knowledge in a flexible and modular structure which is academically rigorous but also practical to enable the development of future entrepreneurs and innovators.
