Program Leader of the Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation
I am currently the Program Leader of the Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at UQ Business School, a unique program that equips aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators with essential knowledge about how to succeed in today’s constantly changing environment. In this role, I provide leadership for the program’s growth and success, initiate and oversee curriculum innovations, monitor and ensure student learning outcomes, and implement student-centered initiatives to promote student success and a strong sense of community among them.
Coordinator and lecturer of two entrepreneurship and innovation courses
Currently, I coordinate and teach one course at the undergraduate level and one at the graduate level.
Learning by doing in a disruptive world (PBEL3000) is a work-integrated learning course in which final-year undergraduate students from across UQ’s Business, Economics, and Law programs work in trans-disciplinary teams to solve complex and unbounded challenges of industry partners. The course runs over ten days in intensive mode and I teach students every day new tools and techniques that they then apply to unpack the industry challenge to come up with increasingly refined and validated solutions. Over the years, students have worked with a diverse set of industry partners including Movus, Optus, Orange Sky, Suncorp, and Surf Life Saving Queensland.
Managing Innovation (EIBS7302) is a core course in the Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation program. It focuses on the fundamental concepts, strategies, and tools that can explain how and why some organizations succeed with their innovations while others do not. I run the course as a flipped classroom, meaning that students have access to all the materials online and we then focus exclusively on having exercises and in-depth discussions around real-world cases in the classroom.
