This unit allows students to reflect on the link between what they have learnt on business subjects in theory and its application in an actual firm/business they have visited. Students will receive support to visit a selection of appropriate companies and how to approach the companies for which they will make a thorough analysis; the companies will be local Sydney companies. Students have the opportunity to integrate their classroom knowledge with the current and future business activities of Australian businesses. Students are expected to determine the current and future opportunities and threats the businesses, given the strength and weaknesses of the business. A comparison across different businesses will also be undertaken. Students reflect on what they have learnt, and how their theoretical knowledge may apply to practicality in businesses across a variety of sectors. Additionally, students are expected to reflect on how they have developed as an individual/student across their studies in terms of their professional identity that highlights their distinctive self.
