  • Second semester 2019 (On-campus)


This unit examines entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial behaviour as something that occurs both within organisational settings, as well as amongst those who start up their own business ventures. Students will be challenged to think critically about the selection and application of concepts, frameworks and analytical techniques in both entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship situations with the aim of developing self-insight, analysis, and judgement to identify and successfully implement innovative business opportunities. The unit provides students the opportunity to demonstrate critical and creative scholarship and responsible and effective global citizenship, whilst analysing and providing multidisciplinary solutions to a current issue in commerce via a team-based approach.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  1. analyse and critically evaluate the role of entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship within organisations within the Australian economic context
  2. analyse and critically evaluate the contemporary public policy frameworks in which entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship operates both domestically and internationally
  3. identify, select and apply frameworks and techniques to analyse specific business cases
  4. recommend and communicate creative business solutions to particular actions which are financially, ethically and socially responsible.
