|Description||The MMGT business project, which comprises two (2) units of study, is designed to provide students with a real life learning experience and to provide assurance of learning for the program as a whole. Students will work in small groups of four (4) or five (5) and partner with a real organisation over a six (6) week period to provide solutions to a real business problem identified in consultation with the partner organisations. Projects will range from social entrepreneurship programs, where students work with community groups and NGOs, thorough to consultancy projects for large multinational corporations. Projects will be overseen by a specifically appointed academic coordinator and students will also have access to business mentors throughout the project. Students will be required to make a presentation and provide a written report to the client organisation, and to make a presentation and provide a written report to their academic and student peers. Students will be assessed on the extent to which they were able to apply theories and concepts developed across the entire MMgt course to a real world business problem and the extent to which they demonstrated having mastered the learning objectives of the program.|
