Major

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Bachelor of Advanced Business (Honours)

This major will show you how to take a new idea to market by building a new business from the ground up.

You'll first be introduced to basic principles of innovation and entrepreneurship, including the entrepreneurial mindset and process. Then, you'll apply this knowledge in practical courses on digital innovation, social entrepreneurship and growth strategies, as well as technology and innovation management.

Through leadership development you will become a resourceful, creative and resilient innovation leader who delivers sustainable commercial and social value. Further extending your skill set, you’ll engage directly in a short placement or consulting project in a startup or commercial partner project.

There will also be the option to develop and grow your own business in an incubator or accelerator within the UQ entrepreneurship ecosystem or beyond.

These deep immersion experiences will move you closer to commercially viable business solutions while establishing valuable networks with potential partners, investors, entrepreneurs and mentors.
