The Undergraduate Business Practicum offers students an opportunity to interact with a sponsor organisation (e.g., corporate, SME, NFP, government) by working collaboratively on a project provided by the sponsor that requires an outcome within a specific timeframe (13 weeks).The project examines the sponsor's current activities, challenges and future aspirations. While undertaking the unit, participants will research the issues presented by the project and determine its scope and key deliverables in consultation with the sponsor. This process enables students to apply theoretical knowledge learned in class, where it is useful, and critically analyse information and data accessed during research to provide possible solutions to the problems and challenges identified. At the end of the 13 weeks period students present their findings to the sponsor and provide written summary (presentation document).
