Bachelor of Business students showcased their readiness for work at the Applied Entrepreneurship expo last week.

The expo was a requirement of the Applied Entrepreneurship course, where students tested their business ideas, and gained valuable feedback from lecturers, fellow students, and staff on their final assignment.

From socially responsible ideas to practical solutions to everyday problems, the student works were the culmination of much hard work: generating ideas through deep market analysis, and applying important workplace skills including organisation, teamwork, and presentation to turn those ideas into prototypes.
