The Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) is the collective voice of all Australian university business schools. Its 39 members teach and research the areas vital to the success of the businesses that underpin Australia’s economy.
In February 2018, the members of the ABDC Learning and Teaching Network gathered in Canberra for the latest in their series of regular meetings.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset Network contributed to the meeting by running a workshop on the theme of “entrepreneurship in the curriculum” and facilitating the consequent discussions.

During the workshop we discussed how staff working in universities might take a more entrepreneurial approach to higher education. We explored the Network's MINDSET mnemonic that is designed to help people easily remember the key aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset.
Stuart Crispin, Co-ordinator of the Learning and Teaching Network, said after the workshop that “the Entrepreneurial Mindset mnemonic is a great way to think about being entrepreneurial in higher education.” For example, an entrepreneurial mindset can help you to play to your strengths, to make smart use of the available resources and to stay in control of your workload.
