The Big Idea is Australia’s leading social enterprise immersion and competition for university students. It is coordinated by The Big Issue, Australia’s longest standing and most significant social enterprise. The Big Issue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that delivers solutions to help homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged people to positively change their lives.
Student prizes include a professional immersion day for the winning team at The Big Issue’s Head Office and PwC Australia’s office in Melbourne, including flights and accommodation.
Students have the opportunity to enter the Big Idea competition either as an extra-curricular activity or for-credit by doing it as part of a for-credit course, COMM3030 for undergraduate students and COMM5201 for postgraduate students. See below for further details regarding doing the Big Idea for credit.
