Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The entrepreneur: You and that bursting brain of yours: whirring with inspiration and intelligence.  It doesn’t take much for you to think up some amazing, game-changing innovation. By definition you are naturally attuned to the ideas that will change the world. You’ve got that part licked. Often, the barriers to turning ideas into a reality are harnessing the skills to communicate your ideas to the relevant audiences and investors, engaging productive enterprise to manufacture or market your vision, and developing the ability to bring others, such as workforce teams, along on your masterful journey. A Master of Innovative Management and Entrepreneurship will provide you with theoretical insight and education to support the creation of your masterpiece. 

The organisational leader: Your management skills have driven your organisation to admirable heights, yet you believe that you may also be missing a critical component to insuring the future responsiveness and advancement of the company. You’re looking to develop skills that will leverage the talent of your team and promote a collaborative working environment where the exchange of ideas is supported. Your management style in these settings seeks to extract brilliance and commodify the entrepreneurial skills within your workforce, to advance your team members’ individual career potential and their collective achievement, while strengthening productivity for the next phase of organisational development.

Law

Juris Doctor

Juris Doctor

The Juris Doctor (JD) and the embedded Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) at the University of Newcastle is designed to equip you with knowledge, clinical experience and the qualifications for admission to legal practice in Australia.

Offered at a postgraduate level, the combined JD/GDLP prepares you to be a career-ready graduate with the skills and extensive knowledge to become a leader in Australian and global legal practice. Students can commence the program in either Trimester 1 (early February) or the Winter Term (late June).

Graduates can apply for entry into the legal profession as solicitors without any further study.

When undertaking the JD, you will simultaneously complete the GDLP. The combined JD/GDLP means that you will develop high level academic and legal skills, while also gaining practical and real-world experience. The ability to achieve both qualifications at once differentiates the Newcastle JD from other JD programs. Embedding the GDLP within the JD program is also extremely cost effective, as you graduate ready to practise as a solicitor. At the same time, the Newcastle region provides quality of life and affordable living options for students, making it an ideal location to undertake postgraduate study.

While completing your JD at the Newcastle Law School, you will also contribute to the work of the University of Newcastle Legal Centre, developing your legal skills by working on real cases under the supervision of experienced lawyers, while providing an important service to the community and increasing access to justice in the Hunter region.
