Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Bachelor of Design

Learn 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'll 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.

You’ll also have 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.

Career paths include starting your own for-profit or social venture as an entrepreneur, driving innovation within established organisations as a business manager or innovation leader, and supporting other businesses to manage and commercialise innovation as a consultant.
