The unit provides the opportunity for students to demonstrate, in a real world environment, what they have already learned about specific aspects of business and management. It also enables them to develop useful consultancy skills.
Appropriate assignments are obtained in advance based on local private/public sector organisations. On allocation of the projects, an appropriate area of academic theory is identified in consultation with the project tutor. The student is then required to carry out a piece of independent academic research into the relevant area. This gives students the opportunity to synthesize existing knowledge with the research undertaken and based on their research a client report addressing the selected issue is produced.
Period: 72 academic hour
