Program handbook

Description

The Master of Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship (MIME) fills an important gap in the market, especially in the Hunter and Central Coast. Such gaps also persist amongst many of our stakeholder communities outside of Australia in the Asia Pacific region. This postgraduate program will provide students with critical entrepreneurial and innovation skill sets to help sustain and rejuvenate existing firms as well as contribute to the development of start-ups.

The Master of Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship extends skills gained in a graduate certificate or through work experience to an advanced level. The program includes courses on global innovation management; entrepreneurship for startups; and important contemporary elements around creativity and design thinking. The Project in Enterprise Development is particularly important and is structured around new products and new processes and ensures students can apply the theory into real world application.

This program is subject to final University approval.

  • Communicate effectively, both (a) orally and (b) in writing, complex innovation management and entrepreneurship information to a variety of audiences
