Employers have always looked to graduates for leadership and initiative. Today’s climate of constant change and uncertainty, coupled with the growing importance of the global community, means that being able to show concrete examples of entrepreneurial ability will help demonstrate that you have initiative, drive and enthusiasm and can provide essential skills for the future economy.
And, if you are like many of your fellow Australian university students who want to start your own business within a few years, why not get a jump on it now?
Regardless of your degree, one of the best ways of developing entrepreneurial skills is through exchanging ideas with other like-minded thinkers, building knowledge by getting involved in new projects and trying out business ideas.
"Graduates must have the ability and capacity to adapt and learn new things."
– Kristina Kipper, KPMG
