Griffith Business School and its corporate partners have launched a scholarship for the new Bachelor of Business Innovation degree to be offered at Logan in 2020.
Valued at $15,000, the Bachelor of Business Innovation Scholarship will support students who are enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Innovation (1616) program.
Program Director Dr Popi Sotiriadou said the School and donor partners were committed to supporting at least one, possibly two future business leaders, through their studies at Logan campus.
Funds were raised at the Business School’s recent Annual Gala dinner, where recipients of the Queensland Business Monthly Griffith MBA Scholarships were also announced.
“The scholarship will support a student who demonstrates a commitment to learning, but may be experiencing financial hardship, to achieve their full potential,” said Dr Sotiriadou.
“I would urge both interested school leavers and mature age candidates to apply.
“Scholarship applicants will be required to demonstrate they are ambitious and career oriented and the ways the scholarship will help them achieve their ambitions.”
The new Bachelor of Business Innovation degree will be based around entrepreneurship, innovation and community.
Students will study the foundations of business as core courses and learn what they mean for business through a series of applied industry integrated activities that are relevant to the region around Logan.
The degree is designed to ensure students graduate with strong internal and external networks, including extended ties to the community and industry organisations.
It also takes into account specific factors influencing the Logan region including rapid population growth, demographic makeup, and student and workforce needs.
Students will work directly with local organisations and businesses to ensure relevant problem-based authentic learning.
