Innovate and grow

Any new enterprise today operates in a dynamic and interconnected environment.  This experiential unit provides the practical entrepreneurial methods required to keep up with the changing nature and demands of work, and create value in innovative ways.

Students will develop a creative mindset, entrepreneurial awareness and the capacity to identify entrepreneurial opportunities.

Essential strategies for promoting enterprise growth will be covered in hands-on learning. These include:

  • evaluating decisions on funding models
  • successful scaling strategies
  • sustainable solutions

Students will be prepared for a wide range of possibilities using entrepreneurial skills and knowledge to start a venture or contributing to an enterprise or community venture.

A full unit outline will be published shortly, visit our FAQ for more information.

We are not your typical school.

Our units are dynamic, collaborative and real world focused – you’ll be working hands-on and in small groups to exchange ideas, complete projects and learn by doing. The workload should feel about the same as one of your degree or diploma courses but is designed to fit comfortably around your schedule.

The change-maker community

 You will become a lifetime member of the diverse SSE community. This means making those unlikely friendships that provide the collaborative spirit for true entrepreneurial successes. It means sharing information, discussing ideas and staying connected with SSE’s activities and industry partners.

You will broaden your mindset and skills by working in inter-institutional, cross-disciplinary teams of like-minded peers from right across NSW.

We’ve got you covered

We believe in making opportunity accessible. SSE charges no fees for this unit. If you are from outside Sydney, SSE will provide a mobility scholarship to cover travel and accommodation costs.


You will not be awarded credit for completing this unit. It is considered as a co-curricular activity.
