Students will be assigned to a Practicum Organisation. Working in teams, they will undertake a host-specified business project of strategic importance and produce and present a professional standard report proposing recommendations. This will be supported by class work providing tools, techniques and reporting formats, and by in-depth work at the Practicum Organisation identifying the scope, opportunities, constraints and recommendations of the exercise. Students will learn to work with unstructured and incomplete information, to develop research and networks to support their inquiry, to work successfully in teams, and to present their findings and seek and receive constructive feedback in a range of settings. Students will also be encouraged to plan, reflect on and modify their approaches to improve the outcomes of their efforts in managing their business project.
Individual written assignments (6%), and participation, team contribution and ambassadorship (15%). Group collaboration (9%) and presentations (10%). Group report with accompanying file of resources. This is assessed as a team assignment in groups of four individuals (60%). The report part is 20,000 words in length. Each individual in the team contributes 5,000 words.
