Students will engage in a real life miniconsulting project where they will work on a project brief provided by participating companies and designed in consultation with academic staff. Students will work in small groups of approximately three to five students, and supervised by an academic member of staff. Project work is expected to be completed over a cumulative twelve-week period, and will aim primarily at defining and solving problems related to the relevant international dimensions of the participating company\\\'s operations. Projects may be with companies based in Australia or overseas. Overseas projects may include an international study tour that the Discipline may organize from time to time. While most projects will be sourced and organized by the Discipline of International Business, under exceptional circumstances, the Unit Coordinators and / or the Program Directormay 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 learning goals.|
