Entrepreneurial competencies and skills are relevant and important for every student at UQ, regardless of their discipline.

Entrepreneurial education is about developing our students’ ability to create social, cultural, or economic value. Enabling experiences for thinking critically and creatively, undertake complex problem solving, negotiate, communicate, and lead can all contribute to developing a student’s entrepreneurial mindset.

If you are interested in embedding entrepreneurial education into your course or program, on this page you will find a wealth of downloadable resources, flexible online modules for staff, workshops, bespoke support, and a community of practice.
