Stepping Towards an Enterprising Future


Entrepreneurship is buzzing at Queensland University of Technology, and its not just world class research. Increasingly our students are engaging in many activities linked to their formal studies and outside to develop their enterprising self. For those of you I have not yet met, my name is Colin Jones and I have just joined the School of Management. I am very excited to be arriving at the Queensland University of Technology right at this moment in time when helping our students to imagine and follow their dreams is such a strategic imperative. My past work has focused on the development of reasonable adventurers, or graduates capable of creating their own opportunities for satisfaction. I look forward to making the most of my contacts in the United States and Europe to help the Queensland University of Technology establish a reputation as a leading provider of entrepreneurship education. Critical to such aspirations is the need to connect our current and future efforts to existing programs, like QUT Starters and excellent leadership Development and Innovation program, which many Queensland University of Technology students are already participating in. We see entrepreneurship as not being containable to a classroom, and we aim to use the aspirations of our students to contextualize their learning opportunities in the dynamic space. We believe our students already exist in the real world and we want to help them to realize the change that is possible in both themselves and the future world of their dreams.

    Dr Jones (Col) is a world class Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Educator whom I have known for several years. He is rare combination of a real world entrepreneur with an excellent track record of relevant, thoughtful research and a passion for entrepreneurship and life.

    I strongly recomnend that all at QUT take advantage of his arrival, support his innovative, individual and entrepreneurial (Reasonable Adventurer) approach to life and then work with him to make great things happen!

    Well done QUT for enabling Col to go on to even greater entrepreneurship education achievements!
