|Description||The International Business Project comprises of two units - MIBS6005 and MIBS6006 - and constitutes the final two units students take to complete the Master of International Business program. Students will engage in a real life mini-consulting project where they will work on a project brief provided by participating international companies and designed in consultation with academic staff. Students will work in small groups of four to five students, overseen both by academic staff and representatives from the company for which the project is being executed. Projects will typically last for six weeks and will aim primarily at defining and solving problems related to the participating company\\\'s international operations. Projects may be with companies based in Australia or overseas. Overseas projects in most cases will be part of an international study tour the discipline will organize from time to time. While most projects will be sourced and organized by the discipline, the unit coordinator and / or program director may also allow students to work on their own projects. On completion of the project, students will be expected to demonstrate that they have achieved the program\\\'s learning goals.|
