At Flinders University, we recognise that careers are evolving and the workplace of the future will look very different from today.
Our new suite of innovation and enterprise electives and courses prepare you for the careers of tomorrow by developing what we like to call ‘personal enterprise skills’ – the innate ability to adapt to whatever life throws at you, professionally and personally.
Whether you are studying health, engineering, science, business or arts you can add innovation and enterprise electives to your degree to gain new, adaptable and transferrable skills that will equip you for changes in the global job market. Or you can choose to study a Bachelor of Business,Bachelor of Letters or Bachelor of Design and Technology and specialise in innovation and enterprise.
Whichever option you choose, you’ll be career-ready and empowered to make your mark on the world.
No matter what career or profession you are going into, being more creative and appreciating how and why modern organisations function the way that they do will help you to be more valuable, more employable, more innovative, and more entrepreneurial.
