More than 40 per cent of students at the University of Technology Sydney want to create their own jobs or start their own companies. A greater percentage are interested in developing entrepreneurial capabilities for the future of work. EY’s Global Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation found similar aspirations globally. With a growing interest in entrepreneurship and a thriving ecosystem in Australia, UTS explored the option of introducing a bespoke degree to help graduates from any discipline fulfil their entrepreneurial potential. Instigated in 2017 and commencing in 2019, UTS will be offering Australia’s first one-year full-time university-wide Bachelor of Entrepreneurship (Honours). The new program complements undergraduate entrepreneurship subjects and extra-curricular activities and also serves as a bridge into more extensive postgraduate qualifications. The primary objective of the degree is to support students towards developing their entrepreneurial venture and learn the skills, knowledge and mindset required to build a successful enterprise. It is open to all students with an undergraduate degree from any discipline and was developed in collaboration with multiple UTS faculties and the wider startup community.
