Master of Entrepreneurship

  • CRICOS Code: 089646D


The Master of Entrepreneurship program combines a highly practical, ‘learning by doing’ approach to subjects alongside a huge number of seminars by entrepreneurs, investors and industry mentors delivered by the Wade Institute throughout the year.

It is the combination of the practical skills you’ll learn, coupled with the unparalleled experience  offered by the Wade Institute that make the Master of Entrepreneurship unique.

Example subject: Garage Project

In this experiential subject, you’ll design and build a small-scale startup before opening for business and serving real customers. You’ll apply key skills in design thinking and the lean startup method to bring your team’s idea to life. And by using customer validation and insights, you’ll evaluate your enterprise for key improvements. In the past, teams have developed startups that have lived on as successful enterprises, including Cards for a Cause – a social enterprise selling custom designed public transport cards with all profits supporting underprivileged youth.

Example subject: Creating Your Own Enterprise

Taught over two parts (Winter Intensive and Semester 2), this subject lays the foundations for launching a viable entrepreneurial venture. You’ll generate ideas and form teams to develop them based on learnings from throughout the year. You’ll test your ideas in the marketplace with real customers and cover topics including value propositions, customer relationships, distribution channels, revenue streams and cost structures.
