  • Overview

    This unit provides a platform for students to exercise the knowledge and skills they have learned in previous units and requires students to complete a major research project in business that deals with issues of economics, under the supervision of a faculty member. Students will actively engage with industry partners. The group work engages students in the challenges of interpersonal communication, task allocation, co-ordination and control. By the end of the unit, students gain a sound understanding of how to research and analyse a business from an economics perspective as well as contextualise their graduate capabilities into the final industry report.
