Business Practicum - BUSS1321

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 that they have visited. Thus, students are provided with an opportunity to interface directly with industry. Students integrate their classroom knowledge with the current and future business activities of Australian businesses. They are expected to determine the current and future opportunities and threats the business is facing now and may be facing in the future, given the strength and weaknesses of the business. Students reflect on what they have learnt in their degree, and how their theoretical knowledge may apply to practicality in businesses across a variety of sectors. Additionally, they are expected to reflect on how they have developed as an individual/student across their studies would lead them to make a unique contribution to the business and society.
