Business Applications; practical, real world experience

The Business Applications in the summer will provide you with valuable practical experience and hands-on application in real industry and entrepreneurial situations.

You can choose between undertaking a Work Placement, a Business Startup or a Consulting Project.

Work Placement

The Work Placement module gives you the opportunity to experience and operate in a real world situation. You are required to secure your own work placement, which will be checked for suitability by the Programme Director. The Work Placement is assessed via two parts: (i) an individual portfolio containing evidence and self-evaluation of the achievement of the learning outcomes of the module; and (ii) an analysis of the industry that the business operates in.

Business Startup

If you have already launched your own startup before joining the programme, the Business Startup module gives you a chance to apply your knowledge and skills to refine a specific aspect of the startup’s business development. Before the start of this module, you will submit a proposal which will be checked for suitability by the Programme Director. If accepted, you will be allocated a supervisor to monitor your progress on the module. The Business Startup is assessed via an individual portfolio containing evidence and self-evaluation of the achievement of the learning outcomes of the module.

Consulting Project

This is a substantial group-based project undertaken for a real client. It gives you the opportunity to apply the programme material to the solution of a real business problem, and to gain valuable consulting experience.
