The crown jewel in our Entrepreneurship Specialisation


The story of Fastrack 4.0 begins at the start of 2020 which marked the launch of Monash Business School's entrepreneurship specialisation with Professor David Gilbert at the helm. We're not sure how they (Monash) convinced Dave to stick around instead of heading to Hawaii for a permanent fixture of surfing and sunshine, but we're sure glad they did.

The specialisation in entrepreneurship comprises six units and 'plugs' into any Master's course at Monash that has the flexibility for all six units, allowing for a diverse range of perspectives and disciplines in the classroom which is where that entrepreneurship and innovative magic happens.


The specialisation focusses on developing entrepreneurial mindsets and building capability around fundamental skills required to be both entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial.


To enrol in Fastrack students must first complete four foundational units which are designed and delivered by industry professionals who have experience working in start-ups. These units build the core foundational knowledge around entrepreneurship and creativity, technology and innovation, finance and accounting for start-ups and law for entrepreneurs.
