I learned so many things in this unit which is very useful in the real world.


A student centered and work-applied learning and teaching pedagogy furnishes the students skills and knowledge essential to solve real-world problems. Such teaching approach needs to be continued with more passion and enthusiasm.

Feedback from Have your say


The lecture content and the workshop activities were amazing. It helped us get a better idea of how the world works. Our innovation capabilities became better and I could see the bigger picture using the knowledge I grasped from each lecture and workshop. The information in the ppt slides does really help us think big and out of the box and the assessment tasks were perfect to get the whole idea. Enjoyed this unit a lot and it was a necessary unit too.


The materials on lecture and workshop need to be continually updated to reflect the latest evidence and most effective practices. The PowerPoint slides need to be revisited.

Feedback from Have your say


The unit possesses a lot of material to learn and think big in the business you wish to do. Showed us some important concepts of business i.e., feasibility analysis, critical risk assessment, interrelationships of business model canvas. And the teaching staff is very supportive in learning these concepts.


The emphasis on portfolio careers reinforces the value of identifying opportunities that might be worth commercialising in the future.
