This module offers students the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills developed in MN-M595 Business Project Foundations. Specifically, students will be tasked with a real-world problem from industry partners and will have to apply the concepts learnt in Business Projects Foundations to complete the task. In groups, students will investigate these problems and project recommendations and solutions, based on a robust exercise in evidence gathering and critical analysis. The focus on this module is developing understanding of the workplace research process and how best this can be done.
Students will work in pre-assigned groups of 6 students to develop a business project based on a business problem/opportunity outlined within a project brief.
There is an opportunity to form your own group however this must be done so before May 22nd , 2023.
Students will be allocated a specific project brief prior to an Introductory session. Students are expected to engage with the business project to answer a specific problem that is being faced by that company.
The business problem/opportunity will allow you to apply the knowledge from your specialist modules to a specific business-related issue. This is a practical module and employers will look favourably on knowing you can apply theoretical knowledge to a practical real world business issue
All communications on the module including workshop lecture slides, support materials and announcements will be via CANVAS.
