Overview

This is the second project course and it provides students with the opportunity to nominate a more substantial project that extends beyond the project undertaken in BUS8101 Business Project A or to undertake two independent projects. It will incorporate significant theoretical issues as well as providing practical experiences relevant to their career development. The project should involve original, independent, creative, and scholarly activity by the student. It is designed for experienced students who have a clearly focused project they wish to use to further develop their subject specialisation. The work undertaken in this project can extend the work developed in BUS8101 Business Project A. Students are required to identify a suitable supervisor from the academic staff within the university and in consultation with them, nominate a substantial project that will incorporate significant theoretical issues as well as providing practical experiences relevant to their career development.

This course requires students to undertake a review of the literature associated with their project area as directed by their academic supervisor. Students will negotiate with their supervisor to agree on the exact format of their project, due dates and a schedule of supervision. It is important that students identify an appropriate supervisor and obtain their approval and ability to supervise the project prior to the start of the semester of study. As part of this process students should be able to outline a substantial project that incorporates significant theoretical issues as well as providing practical experiences relevant to their career development. It is possible that students can use this course to build on the project work in BUS8101, additionally this can be an independent project. Project work undertaken in this course will normally involve data gathering and analysis based on a research proposal which aims to provide a set of career enhancing experiences for the student. Enrolment in this course is subject to the availability of a supervisor and may be sponsored by the student's employer. It is the student's responsibility to identify a suitable and willing supervisor for this project.
