Innovation and Professional Practice Major

ANU graduates will live and work in a world of rapid technological, economic, environmental and social change. The Major in Innovation and Professional Practice builds upon the ANU Vice Chancellor's courses to prepare students from all disciplines with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to build successful careers and achieve great things in this uncertain, but exciting world.

The major is multidisciplinary in enrolment, content and teaching, and provides students with opportunities to learn by working in multidisciplinary teams on complex real-world challenges and opportunities with business, the innovation eco-system, government, NGOs and the broader community.

Note that this major provides a pathway to the Master of Innovation and Professional Practice (MIPP). Students who have met specific requirements will be permitted to take postgraduate versions of courses in this major that correspond to courses in the MIPP. Students who complete these postgraduate courses will be given 24 units credit for the corresponding courses in the MIPP. In addition, students who complete this major will be given 24 units credit for the four university electives in the MIPP.
