About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The MCEI programme will enable students to experience a cutting-edge learning journey to identify and develop entrepreneurial characteristics to become leaders of change and impact the entre/intrapreneurial world. As innovators they will pioneer the art of non-linear problem solving to become resilient and risk tolerant as opposed to risk averse.
The key is 'doing it for real', meaning a hands-on, applied approach to everything during the programme. The programme will open the entrepreneurial door within participants to enable them to recognise new business, social, indigenous or community focused opportunities, develop a minimum viable product (MVP) and approach investors. It is a gateway to create wealth by building a sustainable business or becoming an innovative leader within a large organization, or social or community focused enterprise.
To succeed, founders and entrepreneurs need critical thinking and analysis skills, problem solving, self-management, working with people and communication. The MCEI programme nurtures these skills, and is a platform for human centred creativity, impacting social, cultural, economic, and environmental outcomes and job creation. The relationship between creativity, enterprise and innovation will enable graduates to work beyond borders and become global citizens.
The MCEI programme intentionally builds resilience and confidence alongside the development of the creative, innovative concepts/product by taking an integrated approach, to support a creative, innovative founder and those who seek a different direction. This approach is a point of difference for this programme.
