Real-life projects with real-life impact
My last two completed subjects were applied subjects and we were teamed with industry partners, university professors and PhD students. They were some of the most engaging projects that I’ve been involved in. The real life examples we worked on had outcomes that could directly impact the livelihoods of these people. It wasn’t just an assignment being completed to finalise a unit. We made real life decisions to hopefully benefit people’s futures. My learnings and growth have truly impacted me in a way that I will be forever grateful for.
Leading a democratic revolution
Can an app lead a social and political movement?
Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation graduate Adam and his team at MiVote are using technology to shake up the state of democracy and give the people their voice back. MiVote allows citizens to have their say on issues being debated in Parliament in real-time and not just at the polls.
The Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation provided me the opportunity to network with my peers and change my lens on the Critical Point Network (CPN). The Venture Planning subject taught me about the lean start-up, testing concepts in a controlled environment, and how pivoting fast is crucial for business success. I have been able to directly apply these skills and knowledge to my work.
