Subject outline

This subject offers students an opportunity to apply their understanding of business principles to a real world work-based scenario. You will achieve this by working collaboratively with your employer and subject lecturer to scope, research, participate in and write up a work-based project as a full credit subject. This collaborative process not only allows you the opportunity to design a project that suits your own professional ambitions but gives you a chance to demonstrate your command of relevant business discipline concepts via practical application. As such, this subject affords a unique opportunity to simultaneously contribute toward your professional and academic qualification and may even give you a competitive edge over other university graduates.
