Course aim

To enable students to integrate advanced and specialised business knowledge and skills with the ability to apply them in a business setting.

Course content

Students will undertake an internship or placement in an organisation where the specialised and advanced business knowledge and skills developed during the course of their degree program can be applied.

The internship or placement requires reflection on the application of specialised and advanced business knowledge in a professional context and the development and reinforcement of high level professional competency in business and management.

A final report is required that demonstrates: the ability to produce cogent and compelling argument leading logically to proposals, recommendations or conclusions; professional competency in oral and written expression; and the use and analysis of business intelligence.
