International Business Project (MIBS6007)

UNIT OF STUDY

The International Business Project is completed at the end of the Master of International Business program or International Business specialisation within the Master of Commerce. Students 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 work in small groups of approximately three to five students, and are supervised by an academic member of staff. Project work is completed over a cumulative twelve-week period, and is aimed 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 organise from time to time. While most projects will be sourced and organised by the Discipline of International Business, under exceptional circumstances, the Unit Coordinators and / or the Program Director may also allow students to work on their own projects. On completion of the project, students are expected to demonstrate that they have achieved the program learning goals.
