International Project Study Tour - PMGT6888

The aim of this elective unit of study is to provide students with an opportunity to learn from and compare international approaches to the management of projects, to develop their networks and connections and broaden their view of the field. It will take the form of a study trip to one or more countries where seminars will be arranged with universities allowing collaborative work with local students, academics and researchers and industry and project visits will facilitate enhancement of experience and forge new connections. Individually, students will be required to undertake reading in the field to extend their critical and theoretical perspectives. They will be required to keep a reflective journal throughout the trip documenting their experiences and relationship to their reading. As a group, students will maintain a blog, sharing and reflecting on their learning and experiences with a wider audience. Prior to commencement of the trip, students will submit a proposal for an individual report on a theme aligned with the proposed activities for the trip. This report will require research in terms of a literature review, fact finding and interviews conducted during the trip and will be submitted at the end of the semester. On return to Australia, participating students will host a seminar for fellow students, alumni and industry at which they will share their insights.
