ENTREPRENEURIAL BUSINESS PLANNING

MGT5EBP

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Entrepreneurship is a symbol of business tenacity and achievement. Once the province of small business, leading edge corporate activity now involves an infusion of entrepreneurial thinking into large organisational structures. This change represents a response to the growing number of new and sophisticated competitors, as well as recognition that firms continue to lose some of their most talented people, who leave to become small business entrepreneurs. In this subject students examine the entrepreneurial perspective, which frequently combines leadership, innovation and the assumption of risk beyond security. Students will then work through the challenges involved in transforming an innovation or idea into a new and vibrant business venture.
