Study plan and program details

The Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MEI) program equips graduates and professionals from any discipline to become evidence-based decision-makers, innovative problem solvers, responsible social citizens, and future leaders. The MEI program provides specialised knowledge and skills in the area of entrepreneurship and innovation and can be tailored to include a second specialisation.

In a typical first semester, students will study four introductory courses that provide a common foundation for all Research School of Management (RSM) postgraduate coursework programs. This common core will enable students within RSM to have a broad understanding of key management discipline areas that will support future studies towards a wide range of potential career paths. The common core also provides scope for students to transition between programs (if desired).

This is then followed by specialisations in:

Management Essentials - a coherent body of knowledge of leadership, change management, organisational behaviour, entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategy.

Entrepreneurship & Innovation - knowledge about theoretical foundations and context within which innovations and new ventures contribute to economic activity, an introduction to the tools and frameworks used to identify new venture opportunities and potential innovations, and how to further research and develop their knowledge and skills for entrepreneurship and innovation in the context of a personally impactful client-based project.

Industry placements via the CBE Internship courses are also available.

Research School of Management graduates complete their studies having demonstrated attributes of:

  • Evidence-based thought leaders
  • Innovators and pioneers
  • Collaborative problem solvers
  • Responsive and resilient professionals
  • Effective communicators
  • Internationally informed managers
  • Ethical and responsible decision-makers
