Core Units

Students develop their networking and relationship management skills, expand their networks, meet potential collaborators and further develop core networking and relationship building skills and learn how to effectively flex your ‘hustle muscle’.

The course will be taught using a blended and experiential teaching and learning approach. Delivery of materials, lectures, webinars and discussions will be supported by online learning and communication tools and the SSE learning management system. The two 2-3-day intensives face-to-face classes engage students in group work, discussions and exercises with presenters and facilitators from industry and academia.

Our core unit is not yet accredited towards any university degree or TAFE program. It is complementary to coursework at a student’s home institution and will provide the testing ground for SSE’s fully accredited curriculum in 2018.

These modules provide a draft overview of the core course content and topics. They include both online and face-to-face learning.
