21854 Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



Encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship is an imperative for organisations and governments alike. This subject gives students a way of thinking about how innovation and entrepreneurship occurs – across industries and firms, in large and established organisations and in small and newly created ventures. The subject examines the processes of innovation (the creation of markets, the flow of ideas, the dynamics of invention and commercialisation) and the related organisational processes (strategy, structure and internal processes that foster creativity). Students gain an appreciation of the competitive, institutional, political and economic drivers of innovation and entrepreneurship. They learn to recognise different forms of innovation and to critically reflect on their intended and unintended consquences. Students gain practical insights into assessing business model viability, creating new ventures, the use of pitch decks, and how social capital can be used for career advancement.
