This subject equips students with the skills and mental models to thrive in an industry that is being disrupted every few years. Disruption not only affects business models, it changes audience behaviour. Students learn how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to their work as freelancers, intrapreneurs or entrepreneurs. This includes strategic editorial decisions (such as identifying needs, audiences and distribution), developing journalistic projects and products, and creating new media startups. This subject develops students' skills in producing quality journalism that meets audiences where they are, and engages as it informs.
